Thanks for that!

I have built the application, but I can't figure out how to make it
"listen" (like if I did amidi -p hw:2 -r foo.sysex).  There is only the
'request' option, but this brings up an empty drop-down.

I did my test by doing a backup of my SR16 (closest thing to hand) 
through a cheap USB to MIDI interface.  Worked OK with amidi - or at 
least I received some data anyway.
