I have that problem with pd. What I want to do is control ardour from pd using
midi MMC. I have set up a working virtual midi card in my system for that
reason. If I start pd first it will open the midi devices it is supposed to
open (i.e mididev 1,2,3). I start ardour afterwards but no luck, it cannot
open the midi device it is supposed to receive midi because *I think* (and I
might be wrong) pd opened it first. Same thing happens if I start ardour
first,it will open the midi dev but pd wont be able to open the device ardour
I also had a similar problem with another application called seq24, a few
Does anybody knows what is going on?
Is pd using oss for midi I/O?
Any ideas welcome
