Hi,  I still have no success connecting my midi keyboard via the midi sockets on the back of my audiophile 2496 to ardour.
When i run ardour and look inside Jack connections/MIDI tab, there is only ardour ins and outs available with nothing to connect them too.
Should my keyboard appear as something in JACK..

Any suggestions?

use a2jmidid with the -e option. all ALSA MIDI ports (h/w and software) will appear in JACK and the timing (latency+jitter) will be excellent.
