Hi Jeanette,

Was setBfree compiled with ALSA Sequencer support?

ALSA sequencer support was deprecated and disabled in setBfree by
default in March 2015. It is still available when you compile it with
`make ENABLE_ALSA=yes` (do a `make clean` first).

then    ./src/setBfree midi.driver=alsa    still works here.

In general I do however recommend to prefer the LV2 plugin version of
the organ.
