kmxtool - KORG microX utility
=============================

Description
-----------

Kmxtool is a program to interact with a KORG microX synthesizer. It
allows to dump/load data from/to the synth and to query its current
status.

Kmxtool comes bundled with the asysex program, from which it is derived.
Asysex is a generic (non KORG-specific) tool for emitting and receiving
System Exclusive (SysEx) MIDI messages. It reads a SysEx message from
its standard input and sends it to a MIDI device, then receives a single
SysEx message in response (if any) and prints it to standard output.


Copying
-------
Kmxtool is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public
License, version 3 or higher. The full license is included in the
COPYING file of the source distribution.

MIDI backends
-------------
Kmxtool and asysex currently support ALSA and OSS MIDI backends. Please
note that as I only use ALSA, the OSS backend has only been tested
against the ALSA emulation layer for OSS; it *does* work against the
emulated OSS, so I expect it should also work against a real OSS, but I
cannot guarantee that.

The MIDI backend must be selected at configure time with the
`--with-alsa' or (exclusive) `--with-oss' options. There is no default,
so one of these options *must* be used when calling configure. The
selected backend cannot be changed later without recompiling the program
(runtime selection of the MIDI backend may be implemented someday).
