I try to understand what's happening, but your terminology
is somewhat confusing...

Threads are run, or can be running or waiting, but they
are never 'called'. Functions are called. 

So what is this 'midi callback' thing exactly ?

Is it a thread doing a blocking read() on a midi port,
and waking up when there is data for it ? If so what
does this trhead do with the data it receives ?
Or is it a function you call periodically ?
Or something else ?
