No, no, their point is about the fact that it uses Mackie Control Protocol.
Thanks to SSL I have totally revamped Ardour3's Mackie support and the
surface itself works very, very, very nicely (especially with a direct
ipMIDI connection into Ardour3's own ipMIDI support).

What's a shame (and what makes the purchase price even more absurd for
Linux users) is that they used a proprietary USB audio stack. I'm trying to
see if I can wedge it open with some gentle banter :)
