Onyx Arranger MP3 and MIDI Examples
Onyx Arranger demo songs created by Leonid Rikh
This is a blues manner song created on basis of only one five-measure OOStyle - Count Basie's "Count On The Blues intro". First piano track and second Sax solo track were played by me on a MIDI keyboard and then processed using FX Chains. Track 4 was created from the current chord sequences using Rendering command and then transformed by a guitar accompaniment Modeler PMStyle. Orchestrator settings, Clips mixing, Fills and Envelopes editing allowed achieving the desired song structure.

This is a club-oriented "one chord" composition in which 4 OOStyles are used. It is a bright example of how MOM technology allows morphing initial styles data around Cm7 and C minor scale steps. Listen to the lyrical classical Nylon Guitar insert - are you sure that only one chord was actually used there? 1 and 2 are handmade tracks. Of course, they are transformed by FX Chains, including Modelers, which adds more human feel and life to them. Orchestrator settings, Clips mixing and Envelopes editing allowed achieving the desired song structure.

This is a light Latin-Jazz composition in which 3 OOStyles are used. As you can see, almost all "music" is generated by the OOStyles and only a melody track was played in real-time using a MIDI keyboard. Although only 3 OOStyles are used in more than 7 parts, the musical expression is achieved thanks to different Orchestrator settings. The simple melody sounds quite alive due to the use of MIDI FX Chain, which includes AutoPhraser and 2 Modelers. It is easy to play a melody knowing that a powerful FX Chain will turn it into a good-sounding track.
This is a Rock-Pop song based on the Mark Knopfler's "Money for Nothing" OOStyle. To enrich the basic style, the Ace of Base's "Don't Turn Around" OOStyle was used. Orchestrator settings, Clips mixing and Envelopes editing allowed achieving the desired song structure. Three Solo tracks were recorded using MIDI keyboard. All musical nuances of Solos are produced by MIDI FX Chains, adjusted for Overdriven Guitar, Distortion Guitar and Whistle.
A fusion composition based on only 2 wonderful OOStyles: Sting's "Fields of Gold" and Tupac Shakur's "Nothing To Lose". Series of heavenly Glockenspiel high sounds are generated by "Jumping Balls" Modeler PMStyle (Track 1). Sax Line processed by FX Chain including "Fausto Sweet Legato manner" Modeler PMStyle (Track 2). Track 3 - a Whistle part transformed by a Modeler. Track 4 was created from the current chord sequences using Rendering command and then transformed by a guitar accompaniment Modeler PMStyle.
In this demo song only 3 jazz manner OOStyles were used, and they were applied not only in their initial Meters. Traditional gradually complicated jazz harmony follows the variable meter without affecting initial phrasing and makes it sound live and natural. Please see that from measures 7 up to 19, as well as in other places, D.Brubeck's "Take Five" (5/4 Meter) was used in 4/4 Meter. Also C.Basie's "Count On The Blues" (4/4 Meter) and D.Brubeck's "Take Five" (5/4 Meter) in measures 33 up to 38 was used in 3/4 Meter. From measure 47 D.Baaska's " War&Peace" (4/4 Meter) was on the contrary used in meter 5/4 and the use of swing rhythmic figure contributes to obscuring the currently run meter! And it all is sounding as if the Orchestra styles were in their original meters. (Yes, and the first piano track (quite a simple tune) was played by me on a MIDI-keyboard; the same styles were used with different Orchestrator settings, also some clips are mixed, which allowed to get a smoother nature of song parts combining.)

MOM fans, let the fun begin! Enjoy the freedom of combining genres without limit. Listen to Led Zeppelin accompany Besame Mucho or the Beatles; listen to Ace of Base accompany popular German song! Listen to the examples to hear MOM technology display its powers in the Onyx. This is serious fun!
* To demonstrate some of the possibilities of the MOM technology, we have chosen the popular German song (Alle Vlgen Sind Schon Da) to celebrate the host country for the FMM where Onyx will be announced for the first time.
