[PlanetCCRMA] No MIDI support with ALSA/Audigy

Ever since I've been using ALSA, I've never been able to get MIDI
working. Things seem to be loading during bootup:

Dec 14 23:24:29 akira alsasound: Starting sound driver snd-emu10k1
Dec 14 23:24:29 akira alsasound: Starting sequencer succeeded
Dec 14 23:24:29 akira alsasound: Starting sequencer driver
snd-emu10k1-synth succeeded
Dec 14 23:24:30 akira alsasound: Restoring sound driver settings
Dec 14 23:24:31 akira MidiShare: Loading MidiShare module
Dec 14 23:24:31 akira MidiShare: 
Dec 14 23:24:31 akira rc: Starting MidiShare:  succeeded

(During boot-up, I also see an entry saying something like
"snd-midi-synth already loaded").

But if I launch any MIDI programs, I get error messages about no driver
found, and I can't use pmidi.

I'd really appreciate it if someone could take a look at my modules.conf
file and tell me if anything is missing. As far as I can see, there's no
info on MIDI on the ALSA site - what I have here is largely pieced
together from scraps of information I've gathered from this list and
various other sources.
