Does anyone compose music using any of the portsfromthe/ports/audio collection in FreeBSD?

Thanks for your comments, and sorry for spelling your name wrong. :-)

I'd like to comment on this a bit to avoid misunderstandings: What Dev means 
is, I think, the more refined areas of MIDI support and the sequencer API.

OSS (as offered by 4front) has been offering solid MIDI input/output for a 
long time, but at the moment there is hardly ANY MIDI support in the drivers 
that ship with FreeBSD - you can't in fact hook up a controller keyboard to a 
FreeBSD system in any reasonable way, which is naturally quite frustrating 
for people like Conrad.
