  AKAI (USB audio interface)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Every pad works! Slider and the program Bank too.

What was done to make it work:

It works only if you used a MIDI to USB adapter (which can be bought at for $10.00) and connect to the power supply to the unit. It will need drivers to be used directly into the USB ports.

Additional notes:

Use jack audio server with your applications to get MIDI IN and low audio latency.
