He's back ;)

People have got the Oxygen working but it is not a simple task. There
are some changes that have been going on in the usb-audio/midi code
since you probably last checked. They are just fleshing out last of the
usability issues now.

Of course none of this has been done by midiman people. They have just
been nice at releasing specs and sometimes providing hardware.

If you like I can let you know when the results are in. I think you will
like what has been done. The usb-audio and usb-midi driver have been
merged so you only need to compile one driver now. You will still need
to get the firmware download. The usb-midi sequencer now uses the
rawmidi device which is apparently better quality or latency or both.

There may need to be some changes to the alsa-docs but I will make sure
they are not forgotten.

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No! We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything I've ever done.
