Thanks. Checking it out now. Setup says it can be master or slave. 
Hmmm... need to look at the doc.
I have version 7. Kinda crummy that it crashed when I went to the Global 
Settings. It also never wanted to play an imported midi file (pressing 
Play did not advance the cursor). After the crash, it advanced the 
cursor, but I couldn't get it to play to qsynth.

I'm sure it's my fault not being familiar with the app.

I'll check it out some more...
