Hi All,

First of all - this is my first post to the Mixxx-devel list, so a brief
intro is in order;
I'm Harry van Haaren, developer of the OpenAV audio software, bit of a
music/tech/linux head :)

I've recently been working on improving controller support in Linux audio
land, in particular
what I call "modern USB HID" controller devices (think DJ controllers like
Akai/NI/Abletons range).
I've developed the Ctlra library as OpenAV, which provides access to these
hardware devices
on Linux. The library allows hotplug and various other "advanced" features
like accessing
screens on devices.

I'd like to integrate Ctlra into Mixxx - to provide access to hardware
currently not available
to Linux users, and also to provide hotplug support to those controllers.
I've created a blueprint
on Launchpad[1], and written an introduction on Ctlra and how I propose to
integrate it in Mixxx[2].
Finally, there is a documentation page on what Ctlra itself achieves
here[3], and the source is here[4].

If you have an interest in hotplug of controllers, controller support or
hardware on Linux,
do have a read of the wiki page and others, and I'd appreciate your input
on the ideas!

Thanks for all your efforts on Mixxx so far, onwards and upwards!
-Harry of OpenAV
