in reply to listen to a midi keyboard

This can get quite complicated if you expect to be playing multiple notes at a time or keeping track of their lengths or...

I'd recommend looking at software that can export to lilypond. I hesitate to mention Rosegarden (Linux-only) since it was terribly crashy and dog-slow the last time I tried it... But hmm, Denemo looks promising. It even uses lilypond under the hood.

Besides, the MIDI-related Perl modules I can find on CPAN seem to be mostly about reading and writing .midi files, or writing to a MIDI device (i.e. playing such a file), and pretty much nothing about reading from a MIDI device. Maybe MIDI::ALSA or Win32API::MIDI can do something?

    Oh, and this one guy wrote a MIDI-to-lilypond plugin for jEdit which sounds like worth a try. (It's mentioned at the middle of the page.)

    Did Rosegarden or Denemo ever work as expected?

    I forgot how often this **** chrashed on my old Debian Box.
