My name is Marcelo, I am from Brazil and I am new in
the mail listing.
Well, I have been trying Rosegarden (I was in troubles
with my sound card configuration until now).
I have a Creative SoundBlaster AWE32 PnP (ISA) running
in a Slackware 9.1 box.

Does Rosegarden do that? How?
Thanks in advance for you attention.

Rosegarden doesn't do all of that by itself, because it does not
contain a synth and nor can it host synths internally.
But you can use Rosegarden to do it: you just need to use an external
soft synth, which Rosegarden sends MIDI to via an ALSA connection and
which outputs audio via JACK. Examples of such synths include qsynth
or fluidsynth (which use sound fonts), ZynAddSubFX, amSynth, and
Hydrogen (which is a fully programmable drum machine that can also be
used as a drum synth).
To use such a thing, you usually need to be running the JACK audio
server; you then start up Rosegarden and your synth, select the synth
as the output for your tracks in Rosegarden, and then record the
output of the synth -- either back in to a Rosegarden audio track, or
into a dedicated audio recording application. I suggest you start by
getting hold of one or more soft synths and connecting them up for
MIDI use, and then see where you need to go from there.
