You don't need to write a translater - here is how I would do that :

1. load your midi file in a tracker - or any program that can read / edit MIDI
2. route the midi output of your tracker to ChucK and play the file
3. write a ChucK script that receives MIDI messages and translate them
   to sounds.

Modularity for the win !
