Pisound MIDI I/O

I’ve started a new hobby project which requires 2 streams of MIDI input data to be recorded at once.
Is the pisound hardware capable of this? The documentation is a bit cryptic and it’s not clear whether the MIDI ports are bidirectional or one in and one out…

The DIN-5 MIDI ports are always either an input or output port, so they’re one-directional.

You could actually make use of Pisounds In and Out ports, and add additional input and output ports via the unused Raspberry Pi’s UART pins (with a simple circuit), see this comment: Why choose SPI over UART?
