No, your delta should work and if it does then there is no SW difference
between the delta and the usbmidi once you get to the ALSA midi ports.

It should work just fine. I am assuming you see the ports in the jack midi
ports(under a2j)... I don't know if you use qjackctl or patchage or other
gui for this or if you do it all CL, but I use qjackctl. a2jmidid should
show up in the jack midi panel and when expanded should show your 1010
midi ports. Quick test to make sure data goes through is to use
jack-keyboard midi_out connected to your 1010 playback within a2j... run a
midi cable from the 1010 midi out to the 1010 midi in... start a softsynth
(hexter or qsynth...or which ever you are most comfortable with and know
you can get sound from). and connect a2j/1010capture to the softsynth. If
jack-keyboard can play the softsynth, then the hardware is working and a2j
is set up right. Do check that you can change patches/sustain works, etc.
I figured you had already done a similar test because of what seemed to be
working from your other hw. midi is midi pretty much.
