This would indicate that you have a Jazz16 card rather than a true SB.  In
Readme.cards, it says:

MV Jazz (ProSonic)

The Jazz16 driver is just a hack made to the SB Pro driver. However it works
fairly well. You have to enable SB, SB Pro (_not_ SB16) and MPU401 supports
when configuring the driver. The configuration program asks later if you
want support for MV Jazz16 based cards (after asking SB base address).
Answer 'y' here and the driver asks the second (16 bit) DMA channel.

The Jazz16 driver uses the MPU401 driver in a way which will cause
problems if you have another MPU401 compatible card. In this case you must
give address of the Jazz16 based MPU401 interface when the config
program prompts for the MPU401 information. Then look at the MPU401
specific section for instructions about configuring more than one MPU401


This file isn't exactly accurate with the latest kernels, but it would
look like 


may not be the correct responses for a Jazz16 card.  Also


is probably not the correct response, either.

I'm using a SB16 card and /dev/sndstat doesn't show any midi device
either, but playmidi works (poorly) with this setup.  There seem to be
many missing voices.

Timidity, which converts the .mid files to .wav format and uses GUS patch
files, sounds much better on my hardware.
