If you don't need a standard looking midi sequencer, I would strongly
recommend seq24 (recently updated and mentioned on this list).

Otherwise, qtractor should do the job. I would have said that
rosegarden or muse would be overkill (and might not run that well),
but it might be worth you looking at those too..

I think all of those are available in the Ubuntu repositories. They
may not be the latest versions although they should be perfectly
usable - you might need to "roll your own" for the latest features.
