I have a midi controller, and it creates two files on my ubuntu system
/dev/midi1. I want to see the raw output of my midi device when I push buttons and move sliders. I've tried
tailing the file. I've tried
screening into the file. I've tried
lessing the file. I've tried all of those commands as root. The output is always blank.
When I run
aplaymidi -l I see my device. How do I get the bytestream from my midi device? I only want to read data.
