xeq/seq just convert a midi file to numbers (as you would get from
notein and relatives). To play them you can use every instrument
inside of Pd, that you have or have developed. I may recommend the
fluid~ externals by Larry Troxler and yours truly, which is a
soundfont player using the fluidsynth library. It's a bit tricky to
compile, though. You first need to compile "flext", then
"libfluidsynth" (if you're on Linux, with "--disable-ladspa") and then
the fluid~ external. 

flext and fluid~ are available in the CVS, libfluidsynth on
www.fluidsynth.org rsp. http://savannah.nongnu.org/files/?group=fluid
