Onyx Arranger 2.1

Powerful arranger/sequencer based on advanced technologies with full real-time control of MIDI data generation and transformation. Combining best advantages of existing musical software, it gives great flexibility for professionals and real simplicity for amateur musicians. It has all you need to create a professional arrangement or a full song with excellent multi-object visualization of all events, markers and processes in real-time for both Initial and Processed data.
Using Musical Object Morphing technology (MOM) Onyx allows easy conversion of a ready MIDI file to Onyx Orchestrator Style (up to 10 tracks and 16 measure length) without losing any nuances, which can be later used for generation of a new song accompaniment following any chord progressions (up to 100 chord types and 1/8 note step if you want), even in a different meter. You may have as many OOStyles per song as you want and they will sound perfect in every Chord, Key, Scale and Meter. Styles can be merged by Orchestrator clips editing: you can drag an instrument/clip of one OOStyle to the zone of another OOStyle. Moreover, the accompaniment can be generated in many different ways, by changing the positions of initial pattern measures, altering chord/scale steps, flexible fill inserting, and real-time FXs adding.
Onyx intelligent multimode Harmonizer automatically recognizes the Key and Scale of your tune and calculates a number of high quality chord progressions for this tune in various harmony styles. Furthermore, it can search for and sort the best chord sequences using special internal presets. Every searched variant is provided with objective estimation criteria. And finally, a previously found and saved progression can be opened for use even in a different or variable meter!
Onyx powerful real-time MIDI FX set includes AutoPhraser, Controller Adjuster, Drum Adjuster, Event Filter, Quantizer and the unique NTONYX performance Modeler. You can build FX chains for each Main and Orchestrator tracks, and what is more chains with FX settings can be saved for further use. All this is a big step from "note by note" editing to non-destructive data transformation.
The software pack includes lots of factory Onyx Orchestrator Styles, created on basis of world music hits and performance Modeler styles, has a number of useful views and dialogs, like Piano-Roll, Event list, Chords, Keyboard, etc.
In short, Onyx Arranger 2.1 is the most powerful and flexible arranger integrated with sequencer, a tool worthy of a professional and yet easy-to-use for an amateur, a tool capable of producing MIDI tracks by far surpassing those made by already existing programs.

Additional OOStyles Sets ##06-15

OOStyles (Onyx Orchestrator Styles) - additional software components, the same for Onyx Arranger 2.1, Onyx Arranger 2.1 LE and JMT Orchestrator 2.1 - serve to generate accompaniment. Most Styles are popular world hits made by conversion of MIDI files, preserving all velocity, pitch, modulation and expression changes. Next, additional musical nuances were added using our Performance Modeling technology, which allows to achieve rich sounding, not found in any other auto arranging software. Due to our Musical Object Morphing technology used in Onyx Arranger and JMT Orchestrator, Style data is morphed according to your chord progression and your meter in many ways. So having only one Style we actually have a lot of them.
Additional OOStyle Sets ##06-15 include lots of "generic" Styles in a wide range of music genres. They also contain some Styles created with powerful generating Style Enhancer 4.0 MIDI FX Chains. Currently you can use no less than 1000 OOStyles to spice up your music.
