Unfortunately this one doesn't have a Midi Output select field (only a
midi input select). Each instrument has two settings though:
"Midi PRG" which is a number box, and below that there's a select box
labelled "Output" which has a list of "midi ch1" to "midi ch16" and then
it changes to "FX1 send" through to "FX50 send". I wonder if I am
mistaken and this is an internal thing and Modplug doesn't actually do
midi output. I guess I will have to track down a windows machine to test
that out.

One other weird thing on my laptop is that I have snd-seq-virmidi loaded
but I do'nt see any virtual midi ports listed.

I don't know anything about wineasio. Asio [apart from being the
Australian Security Intelligence Organisation] is the Windows thing for
doing multiple audio outs isn't it? Does that mean that I might be able
to pipe audio out of Modplug into Pd? That would be cool.
