It's a little bit nitpicking regarding to audio, but MIDI indeed is a
little bit fishy.

For audio I chose Jack with ALSA as backend, in the context IMO it's
Jack, but for MIDI it's a little bit complicated ... Jack 2 alsarawmidi
(slave) with a bridge and sometimes ALSA and sometimes Jack, so my vote

Audio: "JACK"
MIDI : "Sometimes ALSA, other times JACK"

Btw. when not crating sounds/music it's ALSA, not Jack, not Pulseaudio.
