I have the same experience with seq24, well no, not stability issues, 
but last time I fired it up I couldn't get it to work at all, but it 
could have been just me ; still, no song that day :/ it's a shame 
because I like mostly everything about seq24, starting with it's 
interface and block workflow.

Have you tried harmonySeq <https://harmonyseq.wordpress.com/>? It's 
quite wonderful, and really refreshing, I tried it out, and even made a 
(french) tutorial for it 
just after reading a very enthusiastic (borderline lyrical) article from 
Louigi Verona 
about it.

I made a quick song (well, no, just a short piece of music, but I'd like 
to use it as a pure composition tool to make SONGS, like R&D verses, 
hooks and bridge with its key changing functions) right away in it 
(using only Qsynth with the Debian fluid-soundfont) and the sky was 
really the limit, it responds quickly, is very light and 
one-task-one-tool compliant, and did not crash on me once.
Definitely try it if you didn't.
