I have noted elsewhere that even on my version LS often does this sort 
of thing when I first try to load a gig file. QSampler then opens the 
gui with one instance, but no gig is loaded. I then will tell that 
instance to load the gig file by clicking instance icon on the left hand 
side and then telling it to do it a second time.

Note also that the version I run is pretty old and it does not handle 
MIDI channel assignment correctly so I just leave the channel on it's 
default value. I can run multipl einstances all respondign to the same 
channel number as a test case. (But not an interesting musical case...)
