Yes, sprouting processes "interactivly" (ie scheduling them in "real 
time") via Midishare wont work on Linux because -- at the time I added 
this code -- callbacks were not supported in CMUCL (see the top of 
midi-topic.html where is says it only works in osx/openmcl.) However, 
now that callbacks are part of CMUCL (and soon in SBCL) it might very 
well be possible to get this working on linux now.  Unfortunately, i 
dont know what sort of timeframe you are hoping for --  i also have to 
start a new piece so I dont know how much time im going to have for new 
features over the next few months.
