getting going with midi
I have an audigy card and pmidi installed. I can play wav, mpeg,
etc. files etc. using applications such as gxine and xmms. However, I
would now like to play a .midi file.
I have pmidi installed. To find the available ports I do:
$ pmidi -l
Port Client name Port name
64:0 Audigy MPU-401 (UART) - Rawmid Audigy MPU-401 (UART)
64:32 Audigy MPU-401 (UART) - Rawmid Audigy MPU-401 #2
I have a symlink /dev/midi --> /dev/midi00. The midi00 is 660
root:audio. User is in the audio group.
So then I'd assume this command should play a midi file:
$ pmidi -p 64:0 filename.midi
But instead, it just hangs with no sound out.
