I have just purchased one of these cheap (£99) from a local music shop largely with the motivation of testing how it works under Linux.

The answer is it works really well, as long as you have a recent kernel. The control surface also mostly works with Ardour 3.

If anyone is interested, the details are in my blog at

If the devs want to pinch the control surface definition and include it in future releases of Ardour, you are more than welcome.

Your binding map is now in the git repository and will appear in the next release of ardour. Thanks!
