The two most common reasons for this sort of thing are that either you
have no soundfont loaded in your softsynth, or else that you haven't
set up RG to route its midi output through the softsynth that you
The solution to the first one will vary with the synth you're using,
but should be pretty easy to figure out. Qsynth has a pretty self
explanatory setup window for loading fonts.
To solve the second, from the main RG window go to Studio -> Manage
Midi Devices and make sure that your synth is showing as one of the
available midi outputs and that it is selected.
The whole getting the sound going thing is a bit of a barrier to
entry, but it gets easier from there.
Hope this helps.
