ALSA MIDI on Debian Sarge
My machine is a Dell Inspiron XPS running Debian Sarge, stock kernel 2.4.25. I have successfully installed ALSA and configured it to work on my Intel ICH5 sound card (snd-intel8x0 module). Everything runs as it should except MIDI.
I installed pmidi and used it to check my available MIDI ports:
Here's the relevant slice of lsmod:
I have installed Timidity too, and it works great, but I really need actual MIDI support. Any ideas?
Now, this is bizarre...
I coded up a quick MIDI player in Java (it's no big feat, Java's MIDI library is breathtakingly easy to work with) on my other machine, where MIDI already works.
I installed the player on my Debian box and MIDI works perfectly. So I guess the problem is with pmidi. Does anyone know why pmidi would fail? Maybe it uses a different soundfont by default? I'm a newbie at MIDI :P
