I'm using M-Audio Axiom (midi keyboard) and it was immediately detected. I used KAconnect to forward midi events to Timidity and QSynth. Those in turn used ALSA. I didn't experience any latency and didn't used JACK. I'm quite happy with the Axiom. Rosegarden was too much for me tough.
Don't worry about missing hw support. Most of the times you just need to wait a few kernel releases before you get support.
I enjoyed the article and will try LMMS and ZynAddSubFX now.
