NTONYX, the innovator and leading developer of software based on Performance
Modeling technology now announces Style Enhancer 3.0 (SE3.0), new stand-alone
software for MIDI-song enhancing and creation of expressive music.
product is the result of further development of the unique NTONYX technology
which allows you to introduce into a MIDI-sequence live sounding music. With the
help of special rules SE3.0 analyzes MIDI-sequences, inserts into them and
changes controller commands such as Tempo, Start Time, Velocity, Volume, Pitch
Wheel, Expression and others. The result of the transformation is either
simulation of a live musician playing a real instrument, or attaining a new
unreal, but very interesting from a musical point of view, character to the
performance. Now it is an easy to use, fast and effective real-time MIDI-tool
accessible to all electronic musicians. It gives the composer and arranger
previously unaccessable, unique and unlimited features for music creation.
MODELER - basic SE3.0 tool allows
transformation of the selected part by a Style in real time "on-the-fly".
- The choice of Styles is carried out with the help of Style Explorer. The
Styles are incorporated in groups and are in folders with the appropriate
- Convenient Transformation Regulators panel, which allows you to easily
achieve a vast number of performance variants and to adjust the nuances of the
- Transformation Regulators also have Double-coordinate controllers - to
smoothly change at once two chosen parameters in real-time. Values for axes X
and Y are set by the drop-down lists, which are placed under each Regulator.
- New regulator VARIABLE is a special parameter programmed by the Style
developer and available for user's control. In every particular style Variable
can be linked to one or more ordinary parameter (Velocity, Duration, Pitch
Wheel, etc.) Application of Variable considerably enhances Style
possibilities. The nature of the parameter action is indicated in the Style
- New Save presets opportunities. Using Preset Line you can save the desired
mode of the Style operation under any name and use it again in the future.
- A Style Library with 30 powerful Styles-algorithms for MIDI data
transforming and covering the playing of a wide range of musical instruments
in different musical manners.
- Combined modes of transformation which allows mixing influences produced
by hand with the help of Wheels, Joystick or with special MIDI-controllers
(Velocity, Modulation, Pitch, Breath etc.) and influences calculated by the
- Extended number of parameters of transformation: Tempo, Start Time,
Velocity, Expression, Volume, Breath, Wheel, Modulation and Panning.
- Auto Optimization function provides a filter of the MIDI-events in the
fragment to be transformed.
- Auto-analyzer section, provides the user information about a MIDI fragment
selected for transformation and allows you to compare the data of selected
material with Style Requirement, to better choose a Style and to execute a
ADJUSTER is a very effective tool for final
adjusting of the parameters values. It allows you to change and adjust various
parameters of a fragment, track or complete song with the purpose of receiving
new values in real time.
DRUMS ADJUSTER allows you to change and adjust
Velocity parameter of a fragment, track or complete song and generate new values
in real time. The operation of the Drums Adjuster is an extremely flexible way
of manipulating the Velocity parameter in real-time and obtain desired sound of
the drums part.
FILTER is intended for deleting events in a
chosen fragment and also for assigning of a constant value of the parameters of
QUANTIZER allows you to adjust the start time
and duration of selected notes so that they line up with a fixed size of a time
grid in real time.
Convenient feature of PARAMETERS VIEW - all
basic parameters Tempo, Velocity, Expression *, Wheel, Modulation and Panning
are displayed by different colours and can be seen simultaneously (on the same
field) in Measure and Controllers pane.
Wide ZOOM OPPORTUNITIES of double coordinate
NOTES and CONTROLLERS
EDITING allows you to manually insert and delete notes and controllers,
to change Start Time, Pitch, Duration or Velocity, also to change meanings of
parameters Expression*, Modulation, Panning, Wheel and Tempo.
CUSTOM SCREEN LAYOUTS allows set up of a screen
arrangement that is convenient for user and which will remain constant with
subsequent startup of the program.
Additional SE3.0 Styles Sets
Style Enhancer 3.0 includes a Library of 30 Styles. However, up until February
2001, a total of more than 350 Styles have been developed. Now, a very complete
collection of Styles serving to simulate both real instruments and unreal
musical manners are available to the user in sets of 30.

Established in 1984, NTONYX went a long way from a research lab and a team of
computer music enthusiasts to a producer of internationally popular software and
a strategic partner of Cakewalk. Our experts have managed to develop original
unique technologies for musical performance modeling and morphing on the basis
of intellectual analysis and transformation of MIDI data. NTONYX is in a
continuous search for new solutions in this direction, regularly expanding the
library of modeling algorithms and constantly finding for themselves new spheres
of interest - such as development of voice banks and tools for audio
