Hey Igor,

Really nice work you've done there. I just was thinking about creating
my own device to replace my FCB's (two of them) and a SPD/S.
I think I'm going to start from what you've been doing, and then, if
you're OK, I can contribute to the code for Ctrlr.

Actually, I once described what I wanted to do on sparkfun's forum:
(as you might see, I'm not use to deal with that Arduino thing, but used
with all the ALSA things on the machine).

I think I'm going to buy the whole things to get it working, and will
get back to you then.

Thanks for sharing, anyway.

PS : are the switches really resistant and robust enough to get walked
on very soon?
