Good hack, Clemens!

As Fernando said, it works. I have a Midisport2x2, but I don't need the 
Midiman's firmware, because my Midisport2x2 works very well with ezusbmidi 
firmware by Lars Doelle, but this can be useful for 4x4 and 8x8 owners... 
while there is not a better GPL solution.

BTW, the latest midisport GPL firmwares and sources are available at 
linux-hotplug project CVS repository:
(modulename "firmware")


ALSA Library Bindings for Pascal
