Yes, even USB 1.0 is more than you need for MIDI.   The thing about hubs
is that if you have a mixture of USB 2.0 and USB 1.0 devices connected
to them, it will drop everything down to USB 1.0 speeds.  So never
for example connect an audio interface to the same hub as your keyboard
and mouse.  I use a hub with a MIDI keyboard and haven't noticed any delay,
but I'm not a keyboard player so my tolerance may be higher.
