At this moment in time I'll skip the rest of your msg since I don't
know all that much about midi nor about switching back and forth
between nouveau and nvidia.

As the maintainer and author of the current linux-rt package both on
aur and in the archaudio-production repo, I'd be interested in getting
the midi performance tested and approved though

One thing did catch my attention though.  you have your rme audio card
in a slot that shares irq with the nvidia and with several usb
devices.  Imo that is really asking for trouble and you need to at the
very least get your soundcard to use another interrupt than the nvidia
