I don't understand your point tbh.

If the NRPN values to access those hidden parameters are known,
then it can be supported, as long as someone does the code for a Fizmo editor.

Are they known at present?

I'm not familiar with the synth or the hidden parameters.

You'd have to dissect the sounddiver editor with the Fizmo connected and figure out each code - it would take a while - I doubt someone would bother putting the time into the project for free

Okay, but I dont see the point in nitpicking and focusing on one small thing that would be hard to implement in JsynthLib.

I could get over it not being able to support every single hidden parameter for every synth out there!

That's what standalone dedicated Editors are for!

It has great potential as a free, universal synth editor, that could be more reliable than Sound Quest.

All it short really is for someone to code an Editor Creator, so we could simply drag Knobs and Sliders into our window,
name them, and input the CC, NRPN and Sysex Values and parameters for each control.

I'm just too loyal to sounddiver
