If you have the line in your ardour.rc where it uses the rawmidi
device ("/dev/snd/midiC3D0") there's a good chance you will not also
get it to work with the alsa seq device.  Therefore, you want one or
the other lines in there, not both.  If ardour always puts in the seq
line, even when you already have a port with the same name, that is a
bug in ardour.
