hello tony,
some of your settings are wrong, here's a quick run down. if u put a tick 
beside master sync output you are making fruity the master link in a midi 
setup. therefore any external gear should be set to ext or auto, (slave). so 
when you press play in fruity your external gear should start as well.

remote control :generic controller, this section of the midi setup is for 
midi controllers like the phat boy, studiomix, control freak, these are for 
controlling automation, eg. movement of knobs sliders and so on.

remote control input should relate to the midi port your controller is 
linked to, i'm not sure how this works when connected through a joystick 
the top right hand quarter of the midi settings page allows you to set ports 
and number them.
when u open a midi out channel, u set the port to the midi channel your 
keyboard is connected to. if you go to the presets in the midi out channel 
you may find your keyboard listed.

by changing either the patch or channel number you should be able to flip 
through your keyboard banks.

                               hopes this helps some
