The day I am going to buy a M-Audio card (which is fairly soon I hope),
I will have to rewrite envy24control in a NON-GUI fashion.  All my boxes are headless,
because I can not use graphical UIs at all.

I know this is no immediate help for you, but it might show to others
that it is indeed a good idea to go with the KISS idea:  I.e., if you
write something as essential as a mixer control, PLEASE dont wrap it up in a GUI
by default, but make the underlying functionality available in some generic way,
such like as a library, or as a command-line tool.

In any case, when I get my M-Audio and finish raping envy24control,
I'll let the list know.  Its all just C code after all...
