The fluidsynth library bundled with QSynth-3.3 is not the official
1.0.8 fluidsynth, but a patched version. The original fluidsynth-1.0.8
doesn't allow to select the winmidi device at all. The patch has been
posted here:

About your question. You need to find the exact winmidi device name,
and write the name into the text box, including the exact number of
blank spaces and punctuation. The next QSynth version will allow to
choose the name from a combo box (you can test the CVS version if you
want to try this system). The available device names can be obtained
with the MIDI-OX program, for instance the menu command View->Device
Info displays the following list into the MIDI-OX Monitor Output in my

 IN:   1) MIDI Yoke NT:  1
 IN:   2) MIDI Yoke NT:  2
 IN:   3) MIDI Yoke NT:  3

 IN:   6) MIDI Yoke NT:  6
 IN:   7) MIDI Yoke NT:  7
 IN:   8) MIDI Yoke NT:  8
 OUT:  1) Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth
 OUT:  2) MIDI Yoke NT:  1
 OUT:  3) MIDI Yoke NT:  2
 OUT:  4) MIDI Yoke NT:  3
 OUT:  5) MIDI Yoke NT:  4
 OUT:  6) MIDI Yoke NT:  5
 OUT:  7) MIDI Yoke NT:  6
 OUT:  8) MIDI Yoke NT:  7
 OUT:  9) MIDI Yoke NT:  8

The name I need to open the fourth device is "MIDI Yoke NT:  4"
(without the quotes). There are *two* spaces between the colon and the
number 4.

Hope this helps.
