some soundcards, especially onboard soundcards don't support midi. So you find all devices in /dev and ALSA was configured right, but ALSA don't work with midi and you see (on console) the message "playback device not found"
Now I have installed the programm timidity + timidity-patches in Debian Woody and all midi's are sounds well. For info: timidity convert midi to wave and play it.
