[chuck-users] not receiving midi messages (Daniel Chapiro)

Whenever this happens to me, It almost invariable has to do with
some other MIDI device getting loaded and bumping the number
of the actual device I want around.  Make sure you’ve only got one
MIDI device available, or if multiple, make sure that you’re explicitly
opening the one you want.  miniAudicle will show the devices, and
also try running:

chuck --probe

in a terminal/shell/dosbox, and see what it prints out for MIDI devices.

That’s my best guess.  Also try another MIDI device, a basic keyboard
or other, and make sure messages from it are getting received.
