FLUIDSYNTH on the Raspberry PI

I installed  FluidSynth (a real-time software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 specifications) to test out my MIDI prototype hardware on the Raspberry Pi and ttymidi. Installation is straight forward.

sudo apt-get install fluidsynth

As I will only be using FluidSynth via the command line I chose to work from two PuTTY ssh. One to launch FluidSynth ond the other ttymidi.

In one ssh the command line.
fluidsynth -a alsa -m alsa_seq /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2

And the other ssh.

ttymidi -s /dev/ttyAMA0 -b 38400 -v &
aconnect -iol
aconnect 129:0 128:0

Where 129:0 is the ttymidi output ( midi input) and 128:0 is the midi input for FluidSynth.

  1. Can midi input signals internally generated by using port by creating keyboard?
