JACK does not "grab" anything except *raw* MIDI ports and even then only if
-Xraw is used, which is a bad idea to begin with.

Is there any way to do this kind of raw Alsa access with jackd going?

You might be able to use the vir-midi module for this. I looked into this
to help someone get JACK MIDI into Praxis. Should work for output too.

Bit more about what I did here -
http://code.google.com/p/praxis/issues/detail?id=3D31

I checked into this, and unless I'm misunderstanding what the module do=
es, it doesn't look like it will help. =A0It seems to provide a virtual=
port for OSS apps to be able to access the Alsa sequencer ports. =A0The pr=
oblem is amidi is already a native Alsa program, but it can't access th=
e hardware ports because Jack has already grabbed them. =A0It's not an =
OSS versus Alsa issue, but just that the device is exclusively in use.

It almost seems like what we need is some kind of Jack-aware amidi command.=
