It's an external MIDI port, such as you could use to talk to a free-standing
MIDI keyboard. It won't make any noise for you unless you have some hardware
MIDI equipment floating around. (It might not work even then. ALSA
recognizes the capability of the chipset, but every i1810 application I can
remember seeing has had no analog joystick/MIDI port on the back, so there's
nothing to connect to.)

If you're writing an article, you should probably note that there's a book out
which answers most of these questions and more. The commercial version is out
now, and I still have the older, less complete "Free Companion" available
too. If you work for a Linux magazine, I imagine the publisher,
http://www.bomots.de, will send you a copy of the full "Rosegarden Companion" for
free. In the meantime, you can read most of it online.
