[linux-audio-user] MIDI hardware recommendations?

I would like to buy either a soundcard or dedicated MIDI interface for MIDI
applications on a PC, and was wondering if people had any recommendations?

My criteria are:

1) Either PCI or USB
2) Good ALSA/kernel support on 2.4.22+ and 2.6 kernels
3) Good MIDI support/reputation
4) Ideally 2 out ports, but 1 would be ok
5) 1 in port is fine
6) If it's a USB device, it would be handy if it also worked on a Mac

I've been looking at the Midisport 2x2 as a possible contender.  Any
thoughts/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!  I'm running Gentoo,
if that makes any difference!

Thanks in advance!
