Definately try QSythn (in the repos). You can use any MIDI application that

and there are tons of them available on the net (see hammersound.net). The

For a nice piano soundfont, there's an excellent free one called
SteinwayIMIS2 (I think). If you can't find it, contact me off-list.

Try something like Finale, and you'll probably soon think that Rosegarden is
light... ;-)
