I have switched just now from the default MIDI on my old system to alsa MIDI
with my new system Debian 3.5.
I have made myself some monitoring of the /dev folder to tell me when a new
midi device gets connected.
Then I check the input with aconnect -i for getting the client and port
number to connect it automatically to Pd.
This works great!
However, I'm having a problem with devices that show up as the same client
with the same port number.
For example the EWI-USB and the Panda-Audio midiBeam both show up as client
On my old system (Ubuntu 11.10) both would be listed and I could
differentiate them by their name.
So I could connect one to Pd MIDI In 1 and the other to Pd MIDI In 2.
Unfortunately on Debian 3.5 only one of them gets listed for each
The other one deosn't even show up. I think it's the one that was connected
first that works. The 2nd one is being ignored.
Does anybody know a workaround for this?
Is there a file where I can change client or port numbers for specific
devices maybe by the PID / VID ?
