As seq24 is a midi sequencer what you can control with qjackctl's midi
patchbay are midi connections. Midi itself is not handled by jack. This
midi patchbay functionality is just a luxury in qjackctl, as it's nice
not to have to open yet another program for patching up midi ports.

seq24 as an ALSA client uses ports which are sort of "hidden". They do
not show up in ALSA midi patchbays (as qjackctl). seq24 insists on
handling the connections by itself. You can hook up midi ports per
pattern (one of the buttons in the midi pattern editor lets you choose a
destination port for this pattern).

But recent versions of seq24 actually do interact with jack. By means of
jack_transport it is possible to sync seq24 to other jack clients (like
