JSynthLib librarian (other device support too, Multi-platform).The original website linked to above seems to have been hijacked. But the Internet Archive WayBackMachine seems to have an archive from the late 2000's with a link to the download, to screenshots, to documentation, and to devices supported). I also now see that there's a SourceForge page for it.
