    midi with alsa oss emulation and pulseaudio

    Hi!

    I'm under Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron using pulseaudio. I've got 2 soundcards : one internal AC97 7.1 without midi (card 0 in ALSA) and a PCI C-MEDIA 2.1 with OPL3 midi (card 3 in ALSA) I have sound in most ALSA or OSS applications with full 7.1 + 2.1 duplex. I have MIDI playback in any ALSA MIDI players (client 29:0 in ALSA).

    I'm trying to run Final Doom for W95 on WINE with OSS driver.
    I have sound effects but no MIDI music. I tryed with padsp and aoss wrappers.

    I know I can use ALSA driver in wine or timidity, but I would rather use padsp + hardware MIDI if possible.

    How do I configure ALSA OSS emulation for MIDI playback and check that it's working ? I tryed playmidi but whatever I told it, it couldn't find any midi device.

    Anyone thoughts?

    check first if you have the midi hardware enabled


    aconnect -o

    Hi,

    I have since upgraded to Lucid Lynx. I can't remember if I got it working in Hardy Heron or not.

    Newer WINE works fine with ALSA and pulseaudio so I don't have to use OSS emulation anymore and hardware MIDI is working fine.

    Thread marked as solved.
