Set up everything the way you want it, then do Composition -> Studio -> Save Current Document as Default Studio. Then every time you create a new file, it'll start with those settings. If you load old files they'll still load with the old settings, but you only have to change the settings once again and resave those files. Having it work that way has it's uses I guess, in case maybe you're working on a composition where all of the instruments are played on different MIDI devices.
(I think, but what do I know, I only started using Rosegarden last week. But that's what I did when I changed my MIDI banks and they stayed in place for me. If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will give you the correct answer.)

Settings -> Configure -> General -> Behavior -> [x] Always use default studio
when loading files.

That's a nice, optimistic spin on it. Personally, I've always hated this
whole concept, and I've yet to imagine a use for it. :)
Fortunately we can have our Cakewalk way and keep things Logic-al too.
