You can use all midi capable softsynths with virtual midi connections.
The trick is to get their audio data back to the sequencer app for
further editing, provided the sequencer can do that. MusE uses (or
used) a combination of virtual ALSA midi ports and LADSPA output for
the audio data. I don't know, if the new MusE now uses Jack instead
for the latter. It would seem like a natural solution.
