not got one, but is it class compliant? if it is, then it should work , is it a Mk1 or Mk2 ?
the Mk2 states its USB Midi class compliant so should be fine.
the Mk1, a bit of searching, indicates it also is (albeit with a special handshake that apparently is only needed for Live), and Linux has no issues with it.
as of now, I think we have all USB midi class compliant devices working, with only 2 exceptions.
- one that had an internal USB hub, which we do not support.
- the Linnstrument, due to extreme volume of data, currently I'm awaiting feedback from owners if the 'low power' mode resolves this, as this was recommended by Linnstrument developer.
anyway, id give a good chance of working, as all looks ok, and other Akai devices are fine.
