I have just bought a Roland Edirol PCR-500 on ebay. The keyboard and
pitch bend lever work fine out of the box in Ubuntu Linux (when you plug
in the usb cable it just comes as an alsa midi device). Not sure yet
about the other controls - knobs, sliders and pads.

Buy in thinkgeek.com a Korg Nano Digital Music Controllers (http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/musical-instruments/af36/) and make it available for Linux, and make MIDI programming like I make in my several MIDI devices. I have no experience in USB MIDI devices and I want to ask if I can spend with no doubt the 50$ that costs.
