because you store an empty seq (check properties from seq's popup).

Seq expects a raw midi stream.  In particular, it needs a status
byte, which is missing in notein's output.  A working setup might
be midiin -> seq or notein (etc.) -> midiformat -> seq, and
seq -> midiout, or seq -> midiparse -> noteout (etc.)

You might wonder, why all this is not documented, but taking
a different perspective, cyclone is the best documented part
of Pd.
