AFAIK no, about all MIDI programs I've tested, work fine.

MIDI (and RS232) based networking setup doesn't always work that well,
but problem with that could as well be in network timings outside
of Hatari, or a problem with the programs themselves.

I could imagine a problem with some commercial MIDI software that
implements its own RTOS for handling for speed reasons, but I don't
remember was this with Cubase or Notator.

Maybe newly working ones be added to the fixed list in release notes?

Both Fokker and Downfall work now fine with normal TOS.

Neither Fokker nor Downfall works with EmuTOS, they just freeze,
but I assume that just to be incompatibility with EmuTOS IKBD
