Thanks Fernando. I had purposely left the OSS part out since I really didn't
want to use any of the audio features of that card, but I should probably do
things right, put it in, do some testing, and then see if removing it causes
and problems.

I'll give this a try.

I take it that you did not see any reason that the MIDI input should not
have worked with my modules.conf file? As I said, I saw the MIDI input when
using aconnect, but there was no evidence that it actually received MIDI
events and passed them on to the software.

Thanks again,
