    My configuration is:
    - Ubuntu 11.10 or 12.10 64 bits
    - QSynth 0.3.6
    - JACK Audio Connection Kit - Qt GUI Interface 0.3.8
    - VMPK 0.3.3
    - Bristol 0.60.8
    I got Bristol with:
           sudo apt-get install bristol
           sudo apt-get install monobristol
    I launch under my user account:
          qsynth &
          vmpk &
          qjackctl &
          startBristol -audio jack -pro5      

    By default, Qsynth, VMPK and Qjackctl are configured with a patchbay.
    For Bristol, with Qjeckctl I connect Bristol with system output on
    the Audio tab in Connections view.
    Everything runs fine: each of both keyboads generates sounds.
    Now I'd like to write a script to launch Bristol. I need its port number
    so I use

aconnect -io

    and I get

client 0: 'System'
    0 'Timer           '
    1 'Announce        '
client 14: 'Midi Through'
    0 'Midi Through Port-0'
client 128: 'FLUID Synth (14516)'
    0 'Synth input port (14516:0)'
client 129: 'VMPK Output'
    0 'VMPK Output     '
client 130: 'VMPK Input'
    0 'VMPK Input          
    Oups! No Bristol port here?
    I need help. Is there any reason aconnect dosn't show Bristol?
    Is there any other way to get it?
