Mark,

I don't know MIDI but I would think that you could use the serial stack 
that Sarah put together as a tester. It will open a port to any 
existing devices that have registered over USB, including devices that 
accept serial commands. The device usually provides the USB device 
driver SO all rev does is load it and allow you to send commands. I 
would check out what type of MIDI commands can be sent.
