OK, I have tried the following:

- using a program which turns the computer keyboard into a virtual midi
device. This makes the sound much more immediate. Having tried this, the
contrast makes it obvious that there is still a problem with delays from
the edirol keyboard.
- running qsynth using the alsa driver. No difference - when I play from
the edirol keyboard there are still noticeable and annoying delays.
- running qsynth as root (using alsa). Again no difference.
- using zynaddsubfx instead of qsynth (again with alsa). Again, there
are noticeable delays.
This makes me think that the problem is to do with the usb midi driver
or the usb hardware on my new laptop - maybe an interrupts issue? I'm
not sure how to get round this though. I'm wondering if getting a
cardbus usb adapter would help?
