A lot of people do so, me too. Btw. also Ardour versions < 3 do include
MIDI support, I guess MIDI Machine Control and MIDI Time Code, but no
You can record MIDI events by a so called "sequencer", e.g. "Qtractor"
http://qtractor.sourceforge.net/qtractor-index.html. For Qtractor you
can add so called DSSI plug-ins, for example Fluidsynth DSSI. Fluidsynth
DSSI is a sample player, that can load so called "soundfonts", free once
are available at http://www.hammersound.net/.
