Hi Dave!

I tried the same kernel but I'm getting very poor MIDI performance
(only external MIDI, provided by a behringer umx61 usb keyboard). 

Jack audio seems fine but playing zynaddsubfx gives horrible latency
(not present using zyn's own virtual keyboard)

Did you try that kernel with an external device?
