OK, I just found a somewhat better way to do this. The audio editing 
software that I use in conjunction with my audio recorder, Acoustica, 
doesn't support midi, at least not directly. However, it can record 
directly off the computer's sound card. So, I started it recording, 
played my sounds (combining SoundNote / midi with WAV) with EmitSound 
from within Mathematica, and voila, I have a sound I can save from 
Acoustica as a .wav or .mp3 or .au.
