I used a test file I copied over from Frescobaldi

#+begin_src lilypond :file test.pdf
\version "2.18.2"
\score {
\drums {
  \time 2/4
  sn16 sn8 sn16 sn8 sn8:32 ~
  sn8 sn8 sn4:32 ~
  sn4 sn8 sn16 sn16
  sn4 r4
  \layout { }
  \midi { }

In Frescobaldi this gets me both midi-output and pdf. In Emacs with
org it does say "Midi output to test.midi", but then there's that "no
midi file generated" message.
