Hello Xavier
Should 'mymp3filepath' include 'file' or 'url'?
Do we need a player object in the stack? On my WindowsXP (where I have both 
Windows Media Player and QuickTime installed) I tried without any success:

set itemDel to "/"
put item 1 to -2 of the effective filename of this stack into tFolder
put tFolder & "/M0NKP9EA.MID" into mymp3filepath
get shell ("start" && mymp3filepath)
