I just thought about this a little bit more. My original
problem is not that data won't come out of the BCF2000. It
works fine with ardour when ardour addresses the hardware as
device="/dev/snd/midiC3D0". But, when ardour relies on a MIDI
patchbay to connect the ardour:mcu MIDI port to a port on the
BCF2000, then the connection isn't made. At this point my
supposition for testing is that ardour listens fine and the
BCF2000 talks fine, but a connection between the two isn't being
I'd like help debugging the connection issue, or confirming that
it's not a connection issue.
