  • It worked at the first shot: Ubuntu Studio 17.04, Sony Vaio, Yamaha P95, MIDI/USB cable. Thank you for your work. I'm helping my daughter to enter the digital sound realm.

  • Not working on Windows 10 (I have newest actual version). When I'm starting this program I get "Runtime Error. This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.". Compatibility mode with Windows 7 and 8 not works.

  • Help! I installed Rosegarden 14... onto my Lenovo Ideapad which I've upgraded to Windows 10. But whenever I try open the program I get a "runtime error" notice and then as soon as I click the notification closed, Windows then tells me it has to close the entire program. This has happened from the moment I installed it and first tried to use it. Help!!

  • I've been using Rosegarden for all my compositions for very many years, and it is *still* the easiest to understand and use of all sequencers. While checking out other software I had to comparatively test against all the ones I could find. None of the others even came within the same ball-park - for all their bells and whistles.
