Hm? It shouldn't be a pain, but just be annoying to change recorded
drums later ;). You could record drums and later mute those drums and
record or just play in sync new drums. I don't know if there is a sync
issue for JACK transport now, but once there was an issue. There was a
delay of one buffer size, that caused a delay that sounds similar to an
early reflection effect, but even if there should be such a delay, I
guess you could give Ardour's tracks an offset.
I did run Rosegarden or Qtractor to play drums by Fluidsynth DSSI, or
Qsynth for Soundfonts or LinuxSampler for GIG files or I used Hydrogen
without it's own sequencer, but as a MIDI sample player. Unfortunately
PC realtime (Windows and Linux) isn't ok when using external MIDI
instruments, because of jitter, internal a PC (Windows and Linux) MIDI
is without jitter.
Avoid USB MIDI and prefer gameport MIDI regarding to issues caused
because of jitter.
A picture of the Delta 66,
http://www.m-audioshop.nl/images/delta6p2.jpg, shows that it comes with
a gameport, perhaps it does support MIDI, you just need a cable
For the 1010 there seems to be a MIDI adaptor part of the product
If you are from Germany get this adapter
http://cgi.ebay.de/Midikabel-IN-OUT-THRU-Gameport-Verl-3070-/300452789949, if not use the search engine and search for something that doesn't cost too much.
