This just sounds too good to be true.
It should be possible to make a native MIDI driver for Win3.x... the driver itself is probably not very difficult: you get MIDI bytes from the Windows MIDI mapper interface, and you output them to the printer port.
But I have no idea what tools would be required, or what such a MIDI driver has to look like for Windows 3.x. I wonder if it's still possible to find documentation on that, perhaps even a sample.
I have a copy of Visual C++ 1.52, I could check if it has the required documentation. But it might require some Windows DDK that I don't have.
