does anybody know of a way to send a simple midi note from the command line? I've checked out sendmidi, which works but I can't seem to recieve the send note and midicom, which doesn't work on 64bit.

All I really need is something I can call like

midi <channel>

Any hints?

I'm using midiRTP to deliver the midi data over an adhoc network, but also tried sendmidi locally using loopBee.


I managed to get sendmidi to work! For the record, for a standard midi message this is the correct syntax:

sendmidi --out 1 --note-on 0 0

This will send note on on port 1, pitch 0, velocity 0.
