you may remember me from the yahoogroup/googlegroup midi email list which is now defunct.
I've finally decided to dump windows and move onto Linux Should have a long time ago.
I have a chromebox (ChromeOS' Crostini) and a raspberry pi 4, fyi.
I've hit google, but am still finding it difficult to find the APIs I need to open and use midi.
I understand there's ALSA and Jack that can both open midi devices.
I think Jack typically needs to be installed, but ALSA is the base os API and PulseAudio is the
main audio API but it won't do midi.
Can you please point me to the best API on linux to list midi devices?
And will I be able to get away with not installing Jack or is that pretty much a necessity?
Thanks in advance. Cuz I know that if anyone knows midi it's you.
(I'll get into audio APIs later on.)
