I'm interested in using a Motorized USB Audio Mixer to control my ROS based system. One example mixer would be the Behringer BCF2000. Has anyone built a ROS driver for this device or similar USB Mixer/MIDI hardware?

To actuate the Behringer BCF2000, have a look here:

It's pretty similar to what was posted above. It uses pygame.midi and exposes the device with a standard Joy message. Pretty straightforward. You can listen to messages on /bcf2000/joy and write to /bcf2000/joy/input to actuate the sliders (axes) or light up the LEDs (buttons).

As kforge is no more, I quickly cooked up a new bcf2000 driver as I could not find the old one anywhere...

You can get a copy of the driver here:

You may be able to use the functionality of my ROSOSC stack, which can serve to interface with OSC (Open Sound Control) hardware and software devices with ROS.

I've been using the Korg nanoKontrol, here is a link to the driver: . It is non-motorized though. I know there is a driver for the Behringer BCF2000, I'll ask my colleague to post it.
