[alsa-devel] About TASCAM US-122 mkII support

I have just got the TASCAM US-122 mkI 
<http://www.tascam.com/products/us-122mkII.html>I audio/midi interface, 
which seemed to me a great product and a good deal.
The problem is that I use a linux system (ubuntu-studio karmic) for 
music production and the interface can not be recognized when plugged.
Among other reasons I chose this device because I thought it would work 
in linux:
There were alsa drivers for its predecessors, the us-122 
<http://alsa.opensrc.org/Tascam_US-122>  and the us-122l 
<http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/%7Esmimram/tascam/> models.
The latter, thanks to Karsten Wiese who wrote a patch for the us-122l 
version, which was latter included by default in newer alsa-firmware 

Unfortunately, the new model (US-122 mkII), the one I have, is not 
supported yet.
I have even tried to get it replaced by the previous us-122l model, but 
it is not available anymore in the music store -> http://www.justmusic.de
On the other hand, the "linux specialist" of the music store told me 
that a new linux driver for the us-122 mkII is been prepared,
although he doesn't know when it will be ready.
Being you the experts I have found in the web in regards with ALSA and 
TASCAM usb interfaces, I have decided to directly ask you about this.
I would really appreciate any information about the topic.

Thanks in advance for your attention.

Best regards,
