MIDI router for OS9?

I'm trying to strategize a setup for my slowly-increasing collection of MIDI gear, and one of the things I'd like is for it to be portable. To that end, I'd like to use my Pismo, since it's pretty rugged and has dual batteries. Mostly I can get by with just running MIDI in to MIDI out, since the keyboards I'd be using can use different transmit channels and do patch-changes, but more generalized routing capability couldn't hurt. I wouldn't need quite the crazy configurability that MIDI-OX on Windows provides, but one thing I'd specifically like is the ability to do a keyboard-split and send input from one channel to two different output channels, since my Radium 49 doesn't have this capability.

Anybody have a good recommendation for an OS9-compatible program for this sort of thing?

I've found that Digital Performer v3.0 provided me with the best control over the range of analog and MIDI devices I have.

But it took months for me to set it up and get it to work reliably.

You need to install OMS (Open Midi System) by Opcode. It's system software which allows you to configure midi setups. You then use a Midi front-end software like a Sequencer, synth, patch editor, etc. Opcode Studio Vision is good for a Pismo era powerbook. If you use Digital Performer (equally good) then you need to use their OMS alternative 'FreeMidi'. You should be able to find this stuff online, but if not let me know.
