I was just wondering, is it possible to use say,  three BCF2000s at the same time with ardour.  Or better yet, is  there another control surface that is bigger that will work with ardour

But, what's a person to do if the type is "alsa/raw" and there is 
actually a soundcard's MIDI port associated with it?  That would be 
my case, in the event I buy a BCF2000 someday -- they seem very cool.
