Hi Rui!

It seems to be an all to common newb mistake, for one who is trying qtr's MIDI for the first time, to wonder why they don't hear anything after they've created or imported some MIDI and hit play.

I would advise qtr display a little 'No connection' warning icon on every MIDI track in the main editor window and in the mixer that either doesn't have an instrument plugin loaded or isn't connected to an ALSA MIDI device. It should of course explain itself and how to remedy the situation when you mouse over it.

Thanks RNCBC!
