       a2jmidid - JACK MIDI daemon for ALSA MIDI


       a2jmidid [-j jack-server] [e | --export-hw]


       a2jmidid is a daemon that implements automatic bridging. For every ALSA sequencer port you
       get one jack midi port. If ALSA sequencer port is both input and output one, you  get  two
       JACK MIDI ports, one input and output.


       -e | --export-hw
              forces a2jmidid to bridge hardware ports as well as software ports

       -u     forces a2jmidid to generate non-unique port names (see NOTES)

       -j     specifies which jack-server to use


       ALSA  does  not  guarantee client names to by unique. I.e. it is possible to have two apps
       that create two clients with same ALSA client name.  JACK however requires port  names  to
       be  unique. To ensure this uniqueness, a2jmidid will add the unique numeric ALSA client ID
       to the JACK port name.  However this behaviour is known to be problematic  when  restoring
       connections  using  simplistic  tools like aj-snapshot and jack_connect.  In order to make
       them work, the -u option can be used. This option will cause a2jmidid to omit the  numeric
       ALSA  Client  ID  from JACK port names.  In this mode, ALSA client name uniqueness must be
       guaranteed externally.
