Just the stock "Korg KONTROL editor" downloaded from Korg's website.
Installation of its msi files required installing the msitools package,
but then "msiexec whateveritwascalled.msi" installed the editor just
fine (it was in my Desktop menus under "Other" then) and it offered me
all ALSA midi connections for use.  Sort-of scary.

No idea what format it saves settings in.  Probably not just the raw
SysEX (that would be too easy).
