       sfxtest [command parameters] ...


       This  manual page documents briefly the sfxtest command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may  be  used  by  others),  because  the  original
       program does not have a manual page.

       sfxtest  is  a  program  designed  for testing that the Linux AWE32 driver has been set up

              Changes the program (instrument) being used to program

       n note velocity
              Sends a noteon command for note note at velocity velocity

       k      Kills a note (sends noteoff).

       K note Kills the note note (used for channel mode).

       r value
              Sets the pitch sense to value

       v note velocity
              Changes the key pressure of note to velocity velocity

       D mode Sets the debug mode of the driver to mode.  Higher values of mode are more verbose.

       C mode Sets the chorus type to mode

       R mode Sets the reverb type to mode

       F parameter value
