Another quick tip:

I use Edirol (Roland) Sound Canvas VST as an FX on a single track. All the MIDI data/channels are being played through it. It's a quick and easy way of listening to the output without having to load multiple tracks.

There are also free alternatives:

Synthfont sf2 player
http://www.synthfont.com/
32bit: http://www.synthfont.com/VSTSynthFontSetup.exe
64bit: http://www.synthfont.com/VSTSynthFont64Setup.exe
Others

The aim is not extremely realistic instruments, but rather a quick way of hearing the output without doing too much effort in the song sketching phase.
