there is a reason why MIDI is a standard protocol.

the only way that a MIDI device is not Linux compatible is if it doesn't
actually send MIDI, but instead uses some proprietary protocol which is
then converted by a device driver into MIDI that can be seen by apps on the
computer.

there are very few such devices. the question to ask is whether it has its
own device driver - if it does not, then its about 99.78% certain that it
will work on Linux or with any other MIDI capable platform/device.
