Midi Problems

I’m a pretty unexperienced midi-user.
Midi-instruments are not recorded when I render a section (but they are played while I render it!). Could this have something to do with my setup…?
The sound-output of midi-instruments is not affected by DSP settings (not even the mastervolume). Is this the way it should be?
I have a SB Audigy soundcard.

“remember to search for older topics than last 30 days too”. Nice tip. I think this thread explains my problem: http://www.renoise.com/board/index.php?act…587ad614c817a55.
Guess there’s no way around using a sfz-like VSTi.
