The Amiga Doom's MIDI player (actually a MUS player) is very fast (all hand-coded assembler) so I doubt you'd be able to make it run much faster by changing it to a MOD player.
Doom already runs a pretty much full speed on an 040/060. To get it running faster on an 030 it would be better to do a few little tweaks to it's rendering code.
