for access to quicktime you can use midishare instead of portmidi 
(midishare has built-in quicktime support). after installing midishre, 
use their msDrivers app to assign an output port to Quicktime, then 
quit msDrivers and test your port connection with msConnect. Once you 
know you can play quicktime with msConnect, first quit and then start 
CM and do:
	(use-system :midishare)
If the midishare port number for Quicktime is higher than 0 you will 
access it by setting  midi :channel values greater than 15.
for example, if QT is midishare port=0 then use :channel 0-15, if 
port=1 using :channel 16-31, port=2 is :channel 32-47
and so on. For example assuming you want to send to channel 0 of port 1 

output (new midi :time (now) :channel 16 ...)
