Sadly, QAmix does not have a definition for this chip. I asked the author
if it would be in the future and he said he might look at it but because
Envy24control is out there, the need may not really exist.

i have been using Ardour expressly for this purpose. It has the
flexibility and thru LADSPA plugs the ability exists for EQ, fx, etc. it
is an extreme under usage for Ardour but hey, it is an applicable use
nonetheless.
