   OK, now here's where it gets tricky. Rosegarden (more accurately
'Rosegarden-4)') uses it's own methods for attaching RG to synths and
external hardware. Not all of these methods are (apparently) visible
in QJackCtl. This has been discussed a small bit on the
Rosegarden-Users list so I'd recommend 1) That you look at those
archives for info and 2) you join that list for specific questions
about RG. Chris Cannam is one of the most helpful folks in Linux Audio
and you'll likely get an answer that makes sense to you pretty

   RG is the only program I know about which specifically is doing
this. They have the concept of a 'studio' which you must wire within
RG before you make music if you want everything in RG to work
correctly. I suspect that you haven't built this studio yet, or at
least not at the time you wrote this second note.

   Good luck with what you're doing. RG is a fun program.
