the Synth One open-source project
[ https://github.com/AudioKit/AudioKitSynthOne ],
unfortunately not available for Linux, runs fine installed to an
iOS 12.2 VirtualBox guest [ https://i.imgur.com/4rHkCs4.jpg ]. Audio out
works and is available for usage by the Linux host.

[weremouse at moonstudio ~]$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:	core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-amd64:core-9.20160110ubuntu0.2-
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS
Release:	16.04
Codename:	xenial

MIDI in for the Linux host works without issues, whatever MIDI hardware
input I chose.

[weremouse at moonstudio ~]$ amidi -l
Dir Device    Name
IO  hw:0,0    HDSPMx579bcc MIDI 1
IO  hw:1,0    TerraTec EWX24/96 MIDI
IO  hw:4,0,0  Scarlett 18i20 USB MIDI 1

However, MIDI in isn't available for the VirtualBox guest.

Any ideas?

As a workaround I record MIDI tracks with Ardour running on the Linux
host, export the MIDI files and import them by Auria Pro or Cubasis
running on the iOS guest. IOW MIDI within the VirtualBox iOS guest works
without issues.
