Alesis SampleRack MIDI over USB capabilities

I am recording acoustic drums and would like to know if I could use the Alesis SampleRack in the following scenario;

Inputs 1-8 are dual-zone, so I would like to split inputs 1, 2 and 3 and use them on 6 separate drum triggers to activate side-chained gates in my DAW.

Use inputs from my Axis pedal e-kit to trigger a sample in addition to activating a side-chained gate to blend acoustic and sampled kick drum sounds.
Doing this would cut down on edit time after recording.

I would like to accomplish this via MIDI over the USB port.
Is this possible to do with the SampleRack?
