Well, if I need to I can prettly easily convert a program I already have 
(xplaymidi) which calls up midi files and convert it to call mplayer or 
whatever. It is probably easier/quicker to do that than to try get a 
fancy player to do something simple ... just figured that someone else 
would have done it already :)
