Subject: Python and MIDI orientation for a project
To: linux-audio-user <Linux-audio-user at lists.linuxaudio.org>

Hi folks.

I'm cooperating with a friend and fellow to improve his project
related to wiimote.

The project is Wiican[1]. In short, it is a tool (a system tray icon
actually) that makes it easier to connect the wiimote and configure
and create key mappings for use at your will. It's written in python
and uses bluez, hal with dbus, wminput and cwiid.

My goal is to add some layer in such a way that you can map wiimote
events to MIDI.  And maybe, to include it on the next improved release
of Musix.

So, in adittion to my researches on the subject and what I already
know about MIDI CCs and so, I would like some advice and guidance
about how to:
- implement MIDI in python (which CCs are a must for you, create and
send MIDI messages, libs, bindings, reference projects),
- implement Jack and Alsa MIDI ports in python (libs, bindings,
reference projects),

... and every other interesting information or experiences on this.

Thanks in advance.
