Hi list,

i'm new to linux-audio and first of all i wanna shout out big thanks to
Planet-CCRMA! As a linux newbie i fiddled around 2 weeks now to make my
linux-box do the audio thing, with very bad results. After checking out
CCRM,  and installing everything from their repository, now it all works
flawlessly :) !

Well, nearly everything works... i'm having troubles getting my Evolution
UC-33 midi-controller to work with Pd. 

I know this issue has been discussed already here, but i simply can't get
this thing working.

I have followed the steps in the USB-Midi-Howto, i added usb-midi and audio
to /etc/hotplug/blacklist. I edited my /etc/modprobe.conf the way explained
in CCRM Install documentation.

Other apps (muse, jack) do recognize the controller.

Here are some outputs that might help:

i've tried starting pd with the following flags, no luck

pd -jack -mididev 1 / 2 / 3    <---- on at a time of course
pd -jack -mididev 32 / 33 / 34 / 39 / 40 /41     <----- same here

and all those flags without -jack

i turned audio on in pd, and tried it with "test audio and midi" patch. I've
opened and selected the midi setup menu every time.

Strangly, when i select the Alsa-Driver, and go to Audio Setup menu, i can
see the UC-33 entry (one with "hardware", and one with "plug-in"), but
selecting those, of course, does not work.

Any hint would be highly appreciated!!

thanks for your help
