M-Audio Ozone on Ubuntu

Basically it is very easy to get your ozone to work with ubuntu. I have only tried this on the AMD64 version of Ubuntu Studio, but other versions can hardly be more complicated.

  • Download the madfu drivers here: Sourceforge.net
  • Unpack the file, compile and install. (You need to have the package build-essential installed. If you have not compiled something yourself with ubuntu, read up on that first.)
tar xzvf madfuload-1.2.tgz  
cd madfuload-1.2  
sudo make install  
  • Now edit the standard udev rules file. Open the file with your favourite text editor (you have to do this with sudo or you won't be able to save your changes!).
sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/42-madfuload.rules  
  • Add the following code (ON ONE LINE!). You should comment out the current code for the ozone because it won't work.
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0763",   
SYSFS{idProduct}=="2808", RUN+="/usr/local/sbin/madfuload -l -3   
-f /usr/local/share/usb/maudio/ma008100.bin -D $env{DEVNAME}"  
  • Connect your Ozone, turn the power on and restart udev:
sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart  
  • Check if your device is detected:
asoundconf list  

This works for me. Hopefully you won't run into any problems, but I guess there is hardly something which can go wrong with this.
