I have included (as an attachment) an excerpt from my MIDI/Music Training course, applicable to your question. 

I'm sorry it couldn't be just an easy answer to a simple question, but as is often the case in Linux, you need to understand how the components you use work.  By understanding that, you can also set it up to record from your external synthesizer, or to record a vocal track with your sequence. 

Let me know if it answers your questions, or if you have further questions.

I need JACK because I include audio files in my sequences.  I can even use it on a 450 megahertz machine.  I've learned a lot about using it in the past few years.  I use Rosegarden, and it's easiest to record audio tracks using Rosegarden. 

Okay. I might try it again if I need to include audio files in my sequences. How do you manage to get audio files in Rosegarden though? I didn't think that was possible?

(For instance, say I wanted to include a recording in an otherwise-MIDI song, can you insert the recording into Rosegarden so it would be played at the appropriate time?)

Just for my benefit, have you tried FluidSynth with ALSA/Pulse on Ubuntu 11.10? If it works, then I should be able to upgrade, since I don't need JACK.
