One thing that they are used for is Kareoke (sorry, I hate it so much I
can't even spell it), or for a backup band for someone who doesn't have a
backup band.  There are MIDI file players that will churn out the tunes with
a slightly-better-than the GM soundset - suitable for lame-os and wankers..
Pretty shitty, but then again - you can store about a zillion MIDI songs on
a disk, so it makes some degree of sense, if Kareoke is your bid-ness...
