this does indeed work! you just need to use a different MIDI device,
but you can use aconnect to map a hardware controller to two separate
virmidi ports (your hardware messages will be sent to 2 virtual
devices -- its like a virtual MIDI-thru, with, for example,
/dev/snd/midiC2D0 and /dev/snd/midiC2D1 receiving the same messages
that you were previously sending to /dev/snd/midiC1D0).

i found this document to be quite helpful while setting up a similar
configuration, especially section 10:

hope that helps. if you still can't get it working, let me know.
