The RK2 was meant for use only with the dedicated software (Guitar
Rig), so I guess that's why they didn't make it MIDI-wise. But maybe
the Audio Kontrol 1 is meant for a broader use, so it would be
reasonable for it to have MIDI.
I encourage you to ask Daniel Mack about it: he's the dev of the driver
and he works for NI, he knows alot about the interiors of these
devices. I think I found his mail on the alsa wiki, otherwise I can
send it to you off-list.

Well the driver uses the linux/input.h library to create these events;
they are totally like a keyboard. For example, if I plug in my RK2 and
I press button 1 on it, it has the same effect as if I press button 1
on my PC keyboard. This behaviour is coded in the kernel driver.
Through supercollider I "grab" the RK2, so that it won't be avaiable to
the rest of the system, and use a dedicated class (GeneralHID) to make
MIDI out of it. I think I even posted some code on the alsa wiki:

http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/NativeInstruments#SuperCollider

(I should really update that code, it's unecessarily complicated for
a basic example)

yeah, if you're not too uncomfortable using things like pd and sc, it
definetely shouldn't be difficult. And it has it's upsides: once you
learn how to do it, you know even how to generate midi from your mouse,
joystick, joypad.... whatever HID. And, with some logic structures, you
can do some more sophisticated things (example: keeping one certain
button pressed changes all the MIDI CCs of the other buttons...)
