They would use the standard MIDI output...

MIDI through the softsynth works for me if I start out with a clean wineprefix, start Timidity as an ALSA server in the background, run winecfg, open the audio tab once, and press OK. It'll pick up on Timidity at that point (or in my case, Fluidsynth, but I used Timidity in the past so I know it works).

If this didn't work, do you have a sound card that already has its own MIDI support? Wine will prefer that over default MIDI if that's the case.

Lastly, if none of this work, check out aconnect (or was it alsaconnect? Hm). It lets you bind MIDI ports to other ones (like the standard 14:0 to Timidity).
