P55. The copy in Step 9 “Control your MIDI instruments” should read:

Currently, we can’t control mt32-pi’s instruments. Go to your track control panel at the left of the timeline and click the FX button next to the volume slider. Select VST: ReaControlMIDI (Cockos). ReaControl’s settings will now open. Tick the Enable box under Bank/Program Select, then click the Load File button a little below it. Select GM.reabank from the file manager window this opens. From the Bank pull-down, select General MIDI. From the Program pull-down, select any instrument that takes your fancy. It should immediately be applied, so you can try out different voices by hitting a few notes on your keyboard. Follow the same steps to add more tracks.
