Nice, it's in Arch's AUR repository. The advantage of a script using
amidi might be, that sending sysEx for e.g. increasing filter values
could be done. Since I'm a dino assembler coder for vintage computers, I
still don't know how to get the checksums for a shell script (I didn't
start to do anything ;), but I guess google will tell me. Another issue
for using old synth perhaps is, that running status for Linux seemingly
can't be turned on and off.
