Hey Clark -

If you're going to use C, then I recommend using the ALSA APIs instead.

But I know how much you love java :-)  so I recommend using the
javax.sound.midi package provided in libgcj.  It provides a API for
querying installed MIDI devices and sending messages back and forth.
I will be super easy.

There's lots of sample code here:

I wrote the MIDI code in libgcj, so just bug me if you have questions.
