Hi Matt;

You might want to forward this good news to the list, i cant because my isp's
wholesailer cant seem to figure out how to fix/fake up my RCPT-TO header so my
mail to the list get's rejected.

reason this didnt work on my cmi chip was because i hadnt recompiled cmi.c :-(


bash-2.05b$ cat /dev/midistat
FreeBSD Midi Driver (midi2)
Installed devices:
 [0/0:provider mpu401]descr mpu401

wooooohooooo!!!!!! i can rock my world now.....

my keyboard scared the crap out of my wife and myself when i ran
Rush-2112_Overture.mid thru playmidi because the volume on the keyboard was
turned up from when i was using the rythm section to provide a beat whilst i
played guitar....i hadnt expected this to work :-)

great job! great great great job!
