Subject: [linux-audio-user] (Q) MIDI, ALSA and my keyboard
Date: Thu Mar 07 2002 - 20:39:51 EET
I am trying to find a way to make my keyboard (MIDI Controller) do things
it is not supposed to. For example it does not have portamento control
and portamento on/off, but it has other buttons that send events (and a
pedal) that I do not use most of the time. I have an SB Live with alsa 5
I can think of 3 ways to do that, but do not know the implementation
details, and how to do them using ALSA, I don't know if aseqpatchbay could
help can some one tell me if I can do the below and how:
1) Generate the events on the computer (portamento control, portamento
on/off) and insert into the midi stream.
2) Intercept unused events coming from the controller (keyboard) and
change them to the required events.
3) Remap events on the hardware (in this case, the SB Live card) to do
Is there any other way of accomplishing this. Any help or pointer will be
