For the past three hours I’ve been trying to get MIDI to work. I’m on kernel 4.15.5-1, and I have a Sound Blaster Live! card. Normal sound works just fine, and loading small soundfonts seems to work (anything bigger than about 8 MB runs out of memory), and I made sure snd_emu10k1_synth is loaded, but playing a MIDI file through any means results in total silence. For clarity, I’m using the hardware synthesizer. This card worked perfectly on my friend’s Lubuntu installation, so maybe it’s an Arch problem. I’m out of ideas, anyone have any?
