Not me, that's certain. I guess another approach is to put something 
in /boot/loader.conf...  but what? 

ben at sark$ locate snd | grep mid
ben at sark$ locate snd | grep seq
ben at sark$                        

doesn't look too good, does it?

Well, I shall try audio/xmms-midi - from what I can gather, it plays midi 
files through whatever xmms normally uses, which will do, I suppose!

Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate a reply even if it's to let me 
know not to bother! ;-)
