Sonic Pi 4.4.0 on Raspberry Pi 4B
I’m setting up a headless exhibit with Sonic Pi sending SysEx messages to a USB device (Novation Launchpad Mini mk2) to control LEDs. It’s all working perfectly, thanks to some great advice I received here, and I’m simply using the following line to reference the port in my code:
set :port, "launchpad_mini_launchpad_mini_midi_1_24_0"

set :midi_note_on, "/midi:launchpad_mini_launchpad_mini_midi_1_*_0:1/note_on"
Is there a way I can do something like this for setting the
