       Qsynth - A fluidsynth Qt GUI Interface


       qsynth [options] [soundfonts] [midifiles]


       This manual page documents briefly the qsynth command.

       Qsynth  is  a  fluidsynth GUI front-end application written in C++ around the Qt framework
       using Qt Designer. Eventually it  may  evolve  into  a  softsynth  management  application
       allowing  the  user to control and manage a variety of command line softsynths but for the
       moment it wraps the excellent FluidSynth.

       FluidSynth is a command line software synthesiser based on the Soundfont specification.
