Behringer Motör & GNU/Linux?

Post by unfa »

Have anybody used Behringer Motör master keyboards with GNU/Linux?
I'm seriously thinking about getting one, but I'd like to make sure it won't lack any functionality when used under GNU/Linux.

Here's the official product page if you don't know it:

Whether all the bells and whistles on this keyboard work under Linux I don't know.

However, rotary encoders have a habit of developing issues over time with buildup of pollutants (dust, oxidation etc) which leads to mega frustration when trying to dial in the desired values. I obviously cannot vouch for how long these ones will last but it's a common problem on audio hardware and keyboards which make use of them. That's why, for example, there's a PE (potentiometer) version of the Prophet 8.

I'm not trying to put you off from getting your dream keyboard but just be aware of this potential issue.

AFAIK the Behringer Motör has not been released yet, so how could anybody have used it with Linux (or even Windows) yet?

If you have found the Behringer Motör in stock at any retailer anywhere then please post the link.

I haven't, but if it is USB Class Compliant there's a good chance that it will work.
