iif you really don't get whether a proper usb cable is the best all
round solution to your problem, then i'll suggest to rig the rpi with
proper alsa-midi and yours trully qmidinet (--no-gui; set to alsa-midi
only), while at the other end, either wired or wireless, run qmidinet
again as well, but now taking jack-midi as the preferred interface. or
ipmidi, if windoze or macosx is on target. beware, the latter is not
quite free, charges may apply;)
