QXGEdit 0.2.0 is out!

Every couple of years I decide to do some spring cleaning, a bit early this time, perhaps...

And then again I stepped into this kind of pure nineties junkyard synth that's still powering on here and then with great joy. And that's happening on every PCI sound-card slot that can be found around here. All about that Yamaha DB50XG (nb. fact is Yamaha doesn't list it on the product archives anymore, so this might be all just archaeology by now...)

Nevertheless, here it goes again:

QXGEdit 0.2.0 is out!

QXGEdit is a live XG instrument editor, specialized on editing MIDI System Exclusive files (.syx) for the Yamaha DB50XG and thus probably a baseline for many other XG devices.


Project page:



  • In a glance, all GUI toolbox pages converted into tabs.
  • Introducing a brand new user preference on eye-candy: cf. View/Options.../Display/Widget style theme.
  • Most graphics now rendered with anti-aliased lines.
  • A man page has beed added.
  • Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
  • Fix port origin on MIDI RPN/NRPN 14-bit controllers input.

Weblog (upstream support):


QXGEdit is free, open-source software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.
