Title: MIDI Player Doesn't Play All Parts, Or Plays Only 1 Part With Strings Sound

Detailed Description:

When playing a MIDI file using the Player/Recorder, though the playback position is advancing, either no sound is heard, or it only plays one of the parts as a strings sound (though that isn't what ought to be used).

Cause Of Problem:

Most likely, the “Playback Device” of the Player/Recorder is set to “(none) – Display Notes Only”. In this case, it plays only the MIDI channel in the current performance pane, and it plays it using the Chords-pane instrument (often String Ensemble 1). If the piece doesn't use the current pane's MIDI channel, no sound is heard (and no notes are displayed).

Work-Around:

Select an actual MIDI device (synthesizer or interface) in the “Playback Device” drop-box of the Player/Recorder. Then you will hear all the parts, and only notes coming over the current performance pane's MIDI channel will be displayed.

Fix Available (in version):

No. It is designed to work this way. Less set-up is required for doing simple exercises.
