I just acquired a Zaurus 5500, and I'm wondering if anyone has gotten
farther than I have using the Audio capabilities.

What I'd like is to use it to play MIDI files,  record
practice sessions, and as a tuner and a metronome.

Recording the practice sessions worked out of the box, with the single
point stereo microphone I use with my minidisk recorder, and playing
back with the compact portable speakers.

There's an entry in the http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/  software index
for something that works as a tuner and a metronome, but the links are

And there are tantalizing references to using the libsdl mixer with
some patches to do MIDI via timidity.  Has anyone tried this?
