The MIDI-PAC will initialize your MIDI equipment when booting up your msx but without running some software that is supporting MSX music it won't do much, just like the FM-PAC.
The MIDI-PAC is emulating the FM-PAC/MSX Music so you don't need a FM-PAC, but you will have to run some MSX music software or games to hear the wonders of the MIDI-PAC.

Try for example this game: http://www.msx.org/news/software/en/firehawk-thexder-2-enhan...

The yamaha psr 550 is looking like a very good keyboard, I don't expect a lot of problems and it probably should sound great.

Maybe it's also a good idea to read the manual of the MIDI-PAC: http://www.worp3.com/midipac/documents/MIDI%20PAC%20manual%2...

updating my midi pac situations:

Midi pac has fixed. mp config works now.
no strange lines on screen and drum voices.

msx dos has updated too.
Many thanks to WORP3 who has helped to me a lot.

i can use msx midi pac as normally.
