[ardour-users] ardour, jack and midi

Howdy.  I decided to test out both the MIDI automation options of Ardour and 
whether my Korg microKontrol would be recognized under Linux this morning 
(well, last night and this morning).

The microKontrol when connected via USB looks like 3 devices.  I installed 
Rosegarden so I had something which would show incoming notes and from what I 
see, the second device on the microKontrol does send MIDI events (I recorded 
both notes and controller values into Rosegarden from it.

Jack and Ardour though seem a no go.

I have followed the instructions in the Ardour manual (obviously skipping the 
Behringer-centric portions) as far as configuring Jackd.  Unfortunately it 
seems that qjackctl has no way of showing when data is present on a given 
connection so I cannot tell if the problem is Jack or Ardour.  

In any case, I ctrl middle click on a slider but Ardour acts like it cannot 
see any MIDI data.  

I could not find anything about this in this manual - what MIDI channel does 
Ardour expect data to be sent on?  Are there any specific controller ranges 
it is looking for?  

Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot this? I'll be trying the M-Audio 
card's true MIDI input this weekend to see if that works any better but it 
would be mighty handy if the USB interface worked.
