Does the ALSA API allow one software to use the audio interface
exclusively, while also allowing a different application to use MIDI on
the same physical device?
That is the only way I can see those instructions making sense, as saying
use JACK for audio, and access the ALSA MIDI directly from Bitwig.
Is that even possible, or once a device interface is claimed for exclusive
access by JACK does that mean both audio and MIDI access for that device
are locked to jackd?
