He lists the source for everything except the x32/reaper middleware  :P

However, I think that making a generic middleware for Ardour to _whatever_ 
is not impossible. The Ardour math is compatible with what controllers are 
out there already. It is more a matter of straight translation table which 
could be done with a "map" file similar to generic MIDI.

It should be noted that this is just the glimpse of a dream at this point 
(unless someone wants to do coding) getting Ardour's OSC done, so that any 
middleware knows what the Ardour end looks like, has to be done first.
