Agreed. There are so many embeded linux projects out there, it would
be like writing one's own printf function when there's glibc here to
do the job...

Moreover, it would allow you to take avantage of a lot of
application/file formats/whatever that is working already pretty well
on a linux audio workstation.

Looking at the specs, the MPC 4000 seems like a big pack of knobs,
LCDs, LEDs, and audio circuits. it's up to the OS to do some music
with it. Are you sure you want to go on the crusade of reinventing not
only the wheel, but also the whole stuff around it ?
