Introduction

This program can be used for revoicing, changing parameter values, transposing etc. style files. This will adjust the style to match the keyboard capabilities, e.g. using only valid voices.

This program will read settings (voices, volume, pan, reverb, chorus) from the first initial measure of the style file only.
Any revoicing or other parameter changing in the individual style parts will be ignored.
