Screen is continuously changing when playing and the vu-meters are 
hidden during the rests. The time they are hidden/visible is certainly 
system dependant, so I'm not surprised we don't see exactly the same

I can hear the 44 contrabass.
Maybe it's related to the sound font Timidity uses which may depend on 
the distro.

You may give a try to FluidSynth which usually makes a better sound than 
  - Download some GM sound font 
    is a good one).
  - Start FluidSynth in place of Timidity:
        fluidsynth -sij /somewhere/32MbGMStereo.sf2 &
  - In RG studio, connect the MIDI device to the fluidsynth port

The bug probably was in the tools used to create the 117-1.mid file.
It's certainly not so common, here are three other MIDI fifth symphony 
versions with the right instruments:

BTW there is something which looks like a RG bug here:
  - Start a new RG session
  - Import a MIDI file with various GM instruments
  - Play it on some GM synth
     ==> all the tracks are sounding like piano (i.e. program #1)

There is a workaround to hear the correct instruments: save the 
composition in a RG file then reload it.

I'll write a ticket about it.

I started writing this stuff following Ted's remark that MIDI only supports 16 
channels. I was a bit too quick as I only noticed later that the instruments 
were not so many.
RG compositions needing more then 16 programs probably are scarce.
Moreover, I presume that a MIDI file can't use more than 16 instruments.

That's an old topic:
There is a page about it in the wiki:

I'm afraid RG has even fewer developpers it had when this thread was 
written and none of them has a lot of time.

I sent the example as is to show what the MIDI Device Manager and the 
Program and Bank Manager are like.
I presume to give a step by step description of how to set them up is not 
really needed.
