I do have an e-piano with speakers, so if I'm lazy, I just use it as-is.

Otherwise my setup is via usb cable (no midi ports) -> alsa midi ->
LinuxSampler -> non-mixer -> jconvolver -> non-mixer -> monitors &
recording software.

Hard to say what sounds better. I have issues with the e-pianos analogue
out (only headphone out, and apparently my stereo plug doesn't fit
properly + noisy anyway).
The piano through its speakers sounds fine, and so does LS and the likes
through the monitors.
