I'm not sure if sequencer is to high level, 
all i need is a way to capture all incoming midi events
which then will be placed in an existing database system.

Currently in OS X and in windows I have a callback that reads each 
midi event for each port as a list of 3 bytes which are then added to a 
C++ STL vector for later processing.

How could something similar be done with alsa?
