It appears that I successfully got, and built, the latest SVN version of
Using that (executed from a terminal), I attempted to record from a
'.mid' file (played using pmidi) of the "acid-test" case.
During the recording, there were quite a few warnings about a note-off
being received without a corresponding note-on. There were also
occasional (toward the end) short bursts of notes (where it was
otherwise silent - I may have turned-off MIDI-thru).
It did make it all the way to the end, and created the segment without
For some reason, I wasn't able to do a multi-track recording (it only
recorded one of the 3 tracks), so I recorded it all to a single track.
But there are obviously missing MIDI events in the recording. The
missing pedal-down events are particularly noticeable, but I can also
hear missing notes (being familiar with the piece), and surprisingly,
some additional notes that shouldn't be there.
Though this time it did record the entire piece, it is a poor recording.
I can send you the '.rg' file, if you want to examine/hear it.
So it still cannot handle the 'acid-test' (though it never has been able
However, this problem has motivated me to learn MusE, which was able to
successfully record this, and other sequences from my old Roland D20, so
now I have preserved all of my earlier work in a form it can be carried

I'm not sure that tools like valgrind will be of any use given that they will slow things down to a crawl. I'll have to dig up my notes on this and see if there's a tool out there that will find this for me quickly.
