In the interim, and if I get some time, I'm going to see if I can get
the Roland VS-2480 working a a surface controller with Ardour. That
would hopefully give 16 channels plus master.
Just got your (2) additional posts -Thanks! I'll try that! This list -
and Ardour, is Way Cool!
BTW, I upgraded to Beta 29 on FC3. My experience on '28 was too short to
form a real basis of comparison, but so far things seem to be smoother
on '29. And thanks muchly for the return of the Pan,Mute Solo etc. to
the surface controller!
