everything you've suggested works. I grabbed the newest .0.7.9Win beta from the web, and the program & channel overrides are great.
Setting the midi instrument to 'drums' also works, but its a devil of a time figuring out which drum corresponds to a given note on the scale.
Is it possible yet to be able to change the 'bank' from which the 'program' is run on a given 'channel' ?
As you can see, its got loads of programs in several different banks.
one assign a specific bank to a channel? I tried typing in the name of the bank "bank 1" into the midi instrument (as with 'drums') but that didn't do any good. I'd like to access some of the extended drumsets and other banks.

I added a feature in cvs to allow overriding midi program number and
channel. It is in the staff properties.
