List all presets in a soundfont, with their names.
int a;
BASS_MIDI_FontGetInfo(handle, &info); // get soundfont info for preset count
DWORD *presets = (DWORD*)malloc(info.presets * sizeof(DWORD)); // allocate array for presets
BASS_MIDI_FontGetPresets(handle, presets); // get the presets
for (a = 0; a < info.presets; a++) {
    DWORD preset = LOWORD(presets[a]), bank = HIWORD(presets[a]); // extract preset and bank number
    const char *name = BASS_MIDI_FontGetPreset(handle, preset, bank); // get the preset's name
    printf("%d.%d: %s\n", bank, preset, name);
