Well, M-Audio distributes Evolution, but I don't think they have
anything to do with the design of the controller.  I could be wrong; I
really have no idea how any USB MIDI (or USB in general) stuff works. 
The page I referenced
[http://www.djcj.org/LAU/guide/evolution-usb-midi.php] doesn't mention
anything about downloading firmware, either.

I'll start looking into hotplug, though.  Thanks.
