You can indeed assign different MIDI inputs to different tracks, but I 
only have the one keyboard connected. I suppose I could use an external 
app like QMidiRoute to split my keyboard input out to multiple MIDI 
outputs based on the MIDI channel, but that would be an awful lot of work.

This should be an easy thing to do within Ardour 3 itself, so either I'm 
missing something and I just haven't figured out how to do it (I'm 
hoping that's the case), or there's no way to do it within Ardour, in 
which case I'd really hope to see it added before Ardour 3 goes final.
