No sound from Midi Keyboard via USB

Hello List,

I just have a Midi Keyboard here (M-Audio Axygen 8) and I am trying to get any 
sound out of it. Unfortunately, I have no Sound Card with Midi Support, so I 
connect the keyboard via USB (I am aware of the possible latency). As system, 
I am using Ubuntu Studio 8.04, because it was quite hard to get my sound card 
working (M-Audio Delta 66), so I did not dare to change to a newer version.

I can see the keys via Jack connector and I connected it to "record in" from 
rosegarden ( in alsa 
tab. In rosegarden, I can see that a signal is coming in and that it records 
something ( But how 
do I now get the signal to the speakers? Nothing really works - shows that I have 4 
outputs from rosegarden. What I'd like to do is to connect the output from 
rosegarden to a channel from Ardour.

Can somebody please help?
