Just yesterday I successfully used BuzzTracker with midi output to 
ZynAddSubFx. Nothing shiny though, most of the events were lost although 
the timing was accurate, ie. no shuffle.

Buzz did not see Zyn, but it shows Midi through port 0 and my soundcard's 
midi out. I selected the through port and used qjackctl to connect it to 

Do you have snd_seq_midi module loaded?
