Making music with M-Audio on Linux

I've used the fast track for over a year, you don't need any special drivers. You didn't mention phantom power. Make sure it is selected if you need it . And then the pad button, press it a few times, mine seemed a little stuck when I first got it. The simplest way to test was with aplay and arecord. First use:

$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Pro [FastTrack Pro], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: Pro [FastTrack Pro], device 1: USB Audio [USB Audio #1]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: HDA Generic [HDA Generic]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I'm also having some luck with the firewire interfaces.
