[TIP] Really easy ALSA MIDI over network
I'm working on a project where I'd like to connect a MIDI keyboard to one computer, them forward the MIDI messages to a synth on another computer. After looking into netjack and some other programs, I found a ridiculously easy solution: aseqnet. Aseqnet is included in the alsa-utils package and makes network MIDI a snap. Just run this command on one computer:

and run this command on the other:

(obviously replacing with the first computer's IP address)
You can use the "-v" option to see info about what's happening.

A new MIDI device will appear on each computer:

aconnect -i
Use aconnect to connect MIDI devices/synths:

aconnect input# output#
Couldn't be simpler.
