??? What is this bit? I did a bit more hunting around and found that
these USB-midi things talk about being plug and play, meaning no drivers
needed; is it the transactions that go on when you plug the device in
that you are referring to as "loaded the appropriate firmware"?
Also, these things vary in price by a factor of three - are there
quality issues that anyone knows of?
