SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     syntheditor [Options] [PresetFile]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     syntheditor allows	users to edit and modify the active presets and	voices

	  specified, syntheditor will load the same preset file	as midisynth
	  has loaded on	the given channel.  If -nomidi was specified, then a
	  default preset is loaded.
