the default port name "mcu" is now an ALSA sequencer port and will need
to be explicitly connected to the hardware port where your BCF2000 is
plugged in. you can use qjackctl's MIDI tab in its connect dialog to do

alternatively, restore the old definition for "mcu" that you had before,
and no explicit connection will be required (since your old port
definition names a hardware port, not an ALSA sequencer port.
