  NTONYX, the innovator and leading developer of software based on Performance Modeling technology now presents MFX Kit 1 - new MIDI FX plug-ins - Controller Adjuster, Drum Adjuster, Note Adjuster, Shape Creator, Step Adjuster, Velocity Scaler - created for use with Cakewalk software. MFX Kit 1 Plug-ins provides an extremely flexible and easy way for control and alteration of MIDI data as well as creation of really new material on the basis of the existing one. Besides, these Plug-ins display all necessary information concerning the transformed fragment in real-time.

Controller Adjuster is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time adjustment of Controllers, Velocity, Pitch Wheel, Channel Aft and Key Aft in the track. Controller Adjuster displays the listed parameters available in the played fragment, allows to replace one Controller with another, as well as to flexibly change values for each Parameter independently.

Drum Adjuster is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time adjustment of drum sounds in the percussion track. Drum Adjuster displays the drums available in the played fragment, allows to replace one drum with another, as well as to flexibly change Velocity values for each drum independently.

Note Adjuster is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time adjustment of note sounds in the track. Note Adjuster works similarly to Edit-Interpolate command in Cakewalk software, but provides some additional opportunities. Note Adjuster allows to simultaneously find 12 separate notes or note ranges in a track, with certain range of Velocity, Duration, Start Time and to interpolate them.

Shape Creator is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time curve drawing of Controllers, Velocity, Key+, Offset, Duration, Pitch Wheel, Channel Aft, RPN, NRPN in the track. Shape Creator allows to set length of the form and interval, on which the drawn function parameter will be applied. According to this interval parameter will be repeatedly applied for the entire selected fragment. You can draw curves for four parameters simultaneously.

Step Adjuster is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time limiting or shifting the Pitch range, whereas the notes do not change their step and can be assembled in the range of one octave. Step Adjuster displays the range and Pitch of discovered Notes. Each note step can be replaced with another. It is also possible to execute mirror reflection of a melody phrase (vertical flip) and to delete quiet or short notes.

Velocity Scaler is a MIDI FX plug-in for real-time correction of Velocity depending on the note number and duration. Velocity Scaler displays the range of discovered Notes, Velocity and Duration and also allows to draw a function (curve) of dependence of these parameters. It can be used for adjusting the sound of the played part, if a MIDI file is played back on a synth with voices and Velocity ratios differing from the instrument which was used originally.

System requirements - the same as for Cakewalk. MFX Kit 1 work with following Cakewalk software: Sonar 1.0, 1,3, 2.0, 2.1, Cakewalk Pro Audio 9, Cakewalk Pro Audio Deluxe 9, Cakewalk Home Studio 9, Cakewalk Guitar Studio 2, Cakewalk Pro Audio 8, Cakewalk Professional 8, Cakewalk Home Studio 8.

About NTONYX
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 technologies.
