I have no idea where it goes after the midi plugin; there must be a default midi-capable sound synthesizer built in to the OS X stuff I guess; purely by analogy from the ‘fun’ we’re having making a similar thing work on linux for the Pi.

I dunno. MIDI control bytes are going out and something is ‘rendering’ them. Maybe there is an app somewhere that would show what is being sent out?

No idea. Can you do the equivalent of a screenshot for the sound?
