[linux-audio-dev] Best-performing Linux-friendly MIDI interfaces?

i'm currently working on a rather large project which i'd like to
fully support under Linux .. it requires, however, a functioning MIDI
sub-system. for this reason, i'd like to ask members of LAD to
report on their experiences with using professional MIDI interfaces,
such as (for example) the Motu MTP AV, Digidesign MIDEX-8, etc?
what is the 'easiest' MIDI interface to get working under the average
Linux kernel? what sort of experiences do folks have with getting
MIDI working (on a programming level) using API's such as (but not
limited to) ALSA, and MidiShare?
for me so far, MidiShare seems to offer the most direct and usable
approach .. while ALSA is wraught with complexity and dependencies
which often seem out of control. i'd like to know what your
experience, as developers, has been with getting a working MIDI
subsystem under Linux ...
