Yes, it should. If it doesn't then the computer receives nothing. I 
presume that Kmidimon also shows nothing?

It looks very much like there is no communication between the PSR and 
the computer. Nigel mentioned the module snd-mpu401; this may be the 
solution as on my system this one is loaded and everything is working.

P.S. when sending data to the PSR Local must be On or you won't hear
