Timidity will convert Midi files to to Au. Be sure to get the beefed up command line (timpp291q.exe) version.
Run it from the command line as timpp291q -a -Ou8UM -s8000Hz myfile.mid
and you will get a playable output.au of the midi. It takes a while to download all the sound patches, but if you follow
the instructions correctlly it isn't too hard. (Timidity++ is also a free softsynth.)
