JJazzlab / virtual MIDI port installation under Linux

Just enter a few chords and get a backing band to practice? Try JJazzlab. These short instructions describe how to get a permanent MIDI connection device under Linux.

  • Unpack the archive to a location with write privileges if you like (JJazzlab can apply updates itself)
  • Add the following line to /etc/modules:
  • Create the file /etc/modprobe.d/snd-virmidi_options.conf with the content:
    options snd-virmidi midi_devs=1
  • Reboot
  • Start JJazzlab
  • Under options configure JJazzlab to use “VirMIDI” as MIDI out

  • You can now use the output “Virtual Raw MIDI 0-0 16: VirMIDI 0-0″ to connect a soundfont / synthesizer
