A simpler approach might be to use a program, such as midicsv to 
pre-process the midi file into textual (CSV) format.
After that, it would be easy to import the result and select the midi 
records that you wished to keep.

Of course the conversion program could be driven from within Mathematica 
using Run, etc.

Alternatively, I would write the low level reader in Java, and drive it 
via J/Link (an immensely useful tool!).

I have never understood why WRI doesn't support Import of midi files.
