Hi Chris,

Normally the Windows app should have a MIDI I/O Preferences dialog. I 
select the ports within the app, then route the sends & receives via 
QJackCtl's MIDI connections panel. The apps themselves won't be shown, 
but of course the MIDI Thru and other ports will be there.

Btw, what audio driver are you using with Wine ? I'm getting great 
results from the wineasio driver.
