USB midi input device ?

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I just bought an M-Audio Keystation 49e off of craigslist and I'm at a bit of a loss on where to start to use it as an input device for muse or rosegarden. Distro: Debian Lenny Kernel: 2.6.26-2-686 Laptop: Compaq V5305WM Everything seems setup, but I'm at a loss on how to use it in the applications. It doesn't have any sound synthesis abilities on the keyboard, it's just an input device. Without the keyboard I usually go this route: jackd -R -d alsa & timidity -Oj -iA & rosegarden And midi events (HowTos)
