The last I know is, that Jack still doesn't do midi, probably Jackrack
is using "normal" midi through the ALSA sequencer. You can use any
ALSA midi sequencer to create connections between applications then.
qjackctl also has an ALSA sequencer patchbay (which has *nothing*
to do with Jack, though). If you use a newer Pd with ALSA midi
support, you should be able to see both Jackrack and Pd in the midi
patchbay part of qjackctl, for older Pds you can do a workaround using
the snd-virmidi virtual midi card. 

Or use [plugin~] and don't fiddle with all this at all.
