That wasn't my original plan, but it's actually sounding kind of
appealing for the kind of thing I want to do, where setup / teardown
time is a major factor.

I presume you do this by mounting it as a USB storage device?

Also, it's advertised as also working as a DAW control surface.  I
don't suppose this feature works with Linux / Ardour?  That would be a
nice bonus, but not really mandatory.
