I'm still using beta 11.2 because I found beta 17.2 to be unstable for
my needs. I may not be in fact but I did not have time to figure out why
it was crashing so I reverted to the version I knew was working...
So in the ardour config file, can I use snd-seq-dummy in place of the
raw device and expect arodur to translate the midi code I connect to the
virtual in port of snd-seq-dummy?
