Another good idea. Some musicians I know well were recently talking
about playing together via Internet -- like you are e.g. in New York
and I'm e.g. in Pekin :-) It was all about using MIDI controllers

I've searched through the Web and found this:




NetMIDI is a protocol I came up with which sends standard MIDI
messages over a TCP transport. It can be used to send MIDI messages
between different computers, even if they are running different
operating systems. Most of the other utilities here communicate over
FIFOs, but this utility can be used to bridge them to NetMIDI.
Actually, this utility will copy any data from a FIFO to a TCP
connection, so it is not MIDI specific; it is similar to netcat
(which I didn't know about at the time I wrote this). 


This utility provides the other half of the connection.


Does anyone has experience of using it?
