most devices should work, the Linux kernel supports USB class compliant devices, and also has lots of ‘quirks’ (workarounds) too. e.g. my Virus works out of the box, despite its non-compliance
if a device doesn’t work (or partially doesn’t) , try using my beta and enable Alsa, which generally is much more reliable. ( all the beta functionality will be part of the next official C&G release.)
you could have used one of your Axolotis , that’s what I do… one of my Axoloti has startup patch with midi thru for USB device to DIN, and also a reverb, and I just plug it into to the Organelle… bus powered, good to go… use the one with your AxoControl on it, and there’s lots of fun to be had
(latency is basically the same as the USB to Midi DIN cable I have, a MIDIMATE II)
anyway, as for working list
- Virus TI
- MIDIMATE II (usb ->midi din)
- KM Softstep
- … a controller that shall not be named, yet
… I also have Eigenharps and a Soundplane running but that is not ‘out of the box’ , that needs my software.
Wifi, use the standard PI wifi dongle… don’t risk anything else, unless you know the chipset used.
Ive a couple of dongles that are based on the RTL8188EU which do not work, as support is not compiled into kernel, this chipset is very common in small wifi dongles.
