> Dear list,

> I m using Pd 0.46-6 on AVlinux with JACK. When using JACK, OSS midi doesn't
> work. ALSA does, but in an odd way (at least to me).
> Pd doesn't appear as a writeable midi client in JACK by default, until I
> ask Pd to open port 1 (or any non-zero positive integer it seems). I can
> then automate the connection in JACK using a patchbay profile.
> Is there no easier way ? Is it possible to save the midi device in Pd the
> way sound settings are saved ? It would be nice if we could send a message
> to Pd when loading a patch to open a specific midi port.
> Cheers,

> I have solved some jack-midi problems with a2jmidid as described here:
I hope this helps.
