Usually when I want to send a sysex dump to a keyboard, I use the amidi
command from the shell, and it works fantastic. However, one of my
keyboards is a Siel DK600, which is one of those synthesizers made at
the dawn of time (or the dawn of Midi) that just barely knows what sysex
is. It sounds beautiful, but Midi is not its high point.

Is there anything you can do on Linux to transmit a sysex file more
slowly? I'm not sure, but I think it may help if the data wasn't coming
in so fast. The DK600 was originally designed to only receive sysex
from other products made by the same company, so they may have had an
assumption that the transmitter would have a slow CPU.
