As Kai said, eca's alsaseq driver was written only for controller/sync
messages in mind, not as a full MIDI file player.

I don't know about your exact requirements, but if you only want to render a
MIDI file using fluidsynth, you can use a command like this:

$ fluidsynth soundfont.sf2 midifile.mid \
          -i -n \
          -o audio.driver=file \

The output will be an audio file in raw format (no headers), signed 16 bit PCM
interleaved stereo 44.1 KHz. This format is suitable as input for ecasound.
