PD does actually support alsa, and my issue was that I was using it
incorrectly. I always found the ALSA docs a bit confusing with regards
to midi but with the help of someone off-list I sorted it out. For
anyone else who has alsa/midi/puredata problems, remember to start pd
with -alsamidi and then run aconnect or whatever to connect yr midi
devices to puredata's midi in ports.
