Avoid using the Arduino libraries, they're painfully slow because they're layer upon layer upon layer of redirection and shimming and footering and faffing.

Handle the MIDI buffer yourself - handle the serial interrupt yourself. Handle 0xF8 as the very first thing you check for on receiving a MIDI byte.
