I can only quote from the other thread I mentioned, in which (at the time) Nicolas (npomarede) was referring to V1.8....

When using Hatari 1.8, there's nothing you can do, it's not some settings problem, it's the emulation that was not accurate enough.
The problem I was having at the time was that Hatari V1.8 (no matter which MIDI software was involved) was only outputting MIDI data for a few seconds, then would stall. The program (sequencer, synth editor) would continue to run as though nothing had happened but no further MIDI data would be output until Hatari was restarted, after which the same problem could be repeated.
However, I must stress that the changes Nicolas made to midi.c during the continuing development of V1.8 completely fixed this problem and were incorporated into V1.9 stable, leaving only a specific problem when going into the edit sub-menus in Cubase 2.
This particular issue was very kindly and quickly fixed during development of V1.9 once I had flagged it up and Cubase is now as usable on Linux Hatari as it is on a real ST, for which I'm truly grateful.
