Note: This new MIDI support requires FS-UAE 3.9.0dev or newer.
Tested on Linux. TODO: Test on macOS and Windows and document with some examples.
You currently need to connect using the "name" of the sequencer with the option
serial_port = midi:<name>.
You can run
acconnect -o to give a listing of ALSA MIDI sequencer names.
Example output while having both fluidsynth and munt/mt32 running:
client 14: 'Midi Through' [type=kernel] 0 'Midi Through Port-0' client 128: 'FLUID Synth (11883)' [type=user,pid=11883] 0 'Synth input port (11883:0)' client 129: 'Munt MT-32' [type=user,pid=11907] 0 'Standard
The names you need to use with the
serial_port option with this exact setup
is 'Synth input port (11883:0)' and 'Standard'.
The default fluidsynth sequencer name includes the process PID, which will
change each time fluidsynth is started. It is a good idea to run fluidsynth
with a static name, for example
fluidsynth -a alsa -m alsa_seq -l -i /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2 \ -s --portname=Fluidsynth
You can the use the option
serial_port = midi:Standard.
mt32emu-qt from Munt on Linux, use option
serial_port = midi:Standard
to enable MIDI output via emulated serial port and route to the ALSA sequencer
set up by mt32emu-qt.
