A Magical Shortcut to Musical Excellence
Onyx Arranger 2.1 LE is a limited (lite) version of Onyx
Arranger 2.1 - powerful arranger/sequencer based on advanced technologies with
full real-time control of MIDI data generation and transformation. All Onyx
Arranger 2.1 Orchestrator Styles are available in Onyx LE (the styles are the
same for both versions). Orchestrator functions are just slightly limited. LE
Harmonizer and Chords system are almost equivalent to the full version. LE
includes the set of necessary MIDI Processing Offline Tools.
This program is based on Musical Object Morphing technology
(MOM) allows to morph one musical data to other. All the styles are created from
properly done ready MIDI files without losing any nuances. Onyx Orchestrator
Style (OOStyle) - up to 10 tracks and 16 measure length - is used for generating
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 can have as many OOStyles per song as you want and they will
sound perfectly in every Chord, Key, Scale and Meter. Styles can be merged by
Orchestrator clips editing: you can drag an instrument or a clip of one OOStyle
to the area 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.
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 out the best chord sequences using special built in presets. Every
found variant is provided with objective estimation criteria. And finally, any
previously created and saved progression can be opened for use even in a
different or variable meter.
The software pack includes lots of factory Onyx Orchestrator
Styles, created on the basis of world music hits and performance Modeler styles
and has a number of useful views and dialogs, like Piano-Roll, Event List,
Chords, Keyboard, etc.
In short, Onyx Arranger 2.1 LE 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.
