Selecting Hardware for Music Production

These days 'm fighting with my new Roland Edirol UA-25EX (USB connection). It seems that the UA-25 is well supported, but the new UA-25EX not at all. It exists a patch, and these days I'm trying to apply the patch and recompile the kernel, without success at the moment. When this is done, I hope a lot of enjoy with UA-25EX (and I hope that the lattency won't be a problem).
Any comments about UA-25 or UA-25EX?
