> I played with the settings in Rosegarden, by clicking my right mouse
> button on the appropriate MIDI track name. I can now hear all the
> samples when I click my left mouse button on the notes at the left of
> the notation editor.
> However, when I throw a few notes together and press 'play', I only hear

> Rosegarden seems to be sending the right MIDI notes somewhere - the

> the indicator in qsynth only flashes once, as the first beat is played.
> Have I configured something incorrectly, or is this a bug? Please let me
> know if more (or clearer) information would help.
> I did have this working some months previously - although I was never
> confident that I understood fully which MIDI output to pick in
> Rosegarden (especially when I had more than one instance of fluidsynth).

Check the rosegarden-user list archives, I'm sure this subject has come up
