What is your soundcard exactly?
If you've gotten SBLive! or AudioPCI/SBPCI64/SBPCI128, then you can't use
MPU-401 - it is emulated under Windows via software.
There is another program - kmid (without "i"), which tries to do it via
OSS sequencer. For this approach, you can use ALSA drivers for MPU401 with
oss-seq emulation - works fine with native MPU401.
