For what it's worth, I have an Evolution USB/MIDI keyboard controller 
with a bunch of knobs (8 of them, I think) and a couple of sliders, and 
it works extremely well.  It was detected and worked from the moment I 
plugged it in.  All of the bits just seem to come together, and all of 
my Linux MIDI apps know what to do with it (i.e. soft synths respect 
pan, volume, expression, effects knobs, etc.).  Very cool.

Just a "me too" on the "Evolution makes good USB/MIDI gear" bandwagon.
