I think you should realize that Scribus is a DTP program and files,
such as a midi (mid) file cannot be embedded.

There is a program called midi2abc ( part of the abcMIDI
package, http://ifdo.pugmarks.com/~seymour/runabc/top.html )which
converts a midi file to abc notation. See
http://abc.sourceforge.net/abcMIDI/ although I am unsure as to how well
it does this.

There is also the abc2ps program that will convert abc notation to ps.

And of course, postscripted abc notation can be imported into Scribus.
