A Magical Shortcut to Musical Excellence
NTONYX announce 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.
