  Extremely Flexible Generation of Modern, Hip Arrangements!
To create a new song with Onyx, simply type in or select chords from the list (up to 100 chord types and 1/8 note steps) or load in a premade progression. Then, choose one or more Onyx Orchestrator Styles (OOStyle) you wish to use in your song, and press Play. You can use as many OOStyles per song as you want - they will all sound perfect in every Chord, Key, Scale and Meter. You can even drag an instrument/clip of one OOStyle to the zone of another OOStyle. When placed into a song, an OOStyle becomes an independent object which will be morphed according to your song's chord progression. For each OOStyle track you create you can easily change the positions of initial pattern measures and fill inserts, alter Chord/Scale steps, Patch, Bank, Velocity, Pan, and more. And when you have your arrangement the way you want it, Onyx will breathe life into plain MIDI with its real-time MIDI FX chain, including the Data Humanizing Modeler.


  Easily Convert a MIDI File to an Onyx Orchestrator Style!
An OOStyle containing up to 10 tracks and 16 measure length can be easily created from any MIDI file or from your own real-time MIDI recordings, even if the MIDI data has Meter and Tempo changes, complex rhythmic and harmony structure, etc. Every style created with Onyx preserves ALL of your performance nuances - Velocity accents, Pitch Bend, Expression, Pan and other controllers, as well as Tempo and Meter changes. Using the program's Style Maker Assistant you can create music without editing any of the source MIDI data. All notes can be morphed according to your song's harmony and meter, even if the initial pattern contains a simple harmony like a single Am chord with whole notes, of if your progression includes frequent chord changes (such as a jazz ditty) with 1/8 note steps. In short, Onyx creates "More Music Out of Music" thanks to its Musical Object Morphing technology!


  Smart Fusion of Arranger and Traditional MIDI-Sequencer!
When using a software arranging tool for music creation, wouldn't you like to have a convenient yet complete visualization of all the MIDI data with conventional Piano-Rolls, Controller Views, Event Lists, Volume, Pan envelopes editing, etc. ? Similarly, when you use a traditional MIDI-sequencer, wouldn't you like to have functions similar to a visual arranger program in addition to powerful MIDI editing? Is it possible to combine them? Yes, it is. Onyx is a smart fusion of this concept: a full-featured arranger PLUS all the features normally found in a traditional MIDI-sequencer. With excellent multi-object visualization of all events, markers and processes in real-time for both raw and processed data, the emphasis in Onyx is also placed on non-destructive data transformation. Once you break free from the notion of tedious "note by note" editing and see how easy it is to simultaneously change parameters of lots of events with total visual representation of the whole real-time process, you'll be hooked. Onyx includes everything necessary for effective studio work using hardware and software synths, allowing you complete control of the creative process.


  Intelligent Multimode Harmonizer
You can make a great sounding song for that melody bouncing around in your head in seconds with the Onyx Harmonizer! Harmony is like clothing; a wrapper for a melody. It can change the character of a tune in the most beautiful ways. It can decorate, hide and highlight, breathe in new colors, new textures, and different moods into the same tune. For this reason, the Onyx Harmonizer can automatically recognize the Key and Scale of any melody (and any key changes), and find several appropriate high quality chord progressions for your melody in a number of different styles (Pop, Jazz, Folk, Classic, Gypsy, etc.) and moods. You can then change the scale, harmonization style, number of available chords, and tweak parameters to your heart's content!


  Advanced Chord / Scale System
The Onyx arranging system includes more than 100 chord types and their inversions sorted into convenient groups: Associated Chords, Inversions of Associated Chords, Limited set Chords, Any Chords. This system also automatically indicates the appropriateness of an inserted chord to the current Key/Scale while taking on five basic scale tonalities - Minor, Major, Blues Minor, Blues Major, Gypsy (up to 14 internal scales can be specified using an ADVANCED scale setting). If you want to use simple chords - it's easy! If you want to use complex jazz or classical chords - no problem! If you want to use hip, modern, alternative, even crazy chords like C,C#,D and F#,G,G# notes sounding together - then this is the software for you! Key/Scale/Chord transposition of selected parts of a progression, two modes of chord writing - this is the arranger/sequencer solution you have been waiting for!


  Powerful Real-Time MIDI FX Set with the Unique Modeler
The Onyx real-time MIDI FX set includes AutoPhraser, Controller Adjuster, Drum Adjuster, Event Filter, Quantizer and the unique Performance Modeler. You can build FX chains using any number of FXs in any sequence. Moreover, chains with FX settings can be saved for instant recall, so you will quickly accumulate and never lose your favorite flavour of data transformation. Try the Onyx MIDI processing tools and you will be surprised at how lifelike your keyboards, synthesizers, and GM/GS/XG MIDI modules can sound!


  Large OOStyle / PMStyle Sets Included!
The Onyx Orchestrator Style library includes more than 500 rich internal data styles, created by industry professionals and based on internationally acclaimed music. All OOStyles include the actual name of the popular song they were inspired by, so when you choose a style you will always know exactly how the style can be used. You won't see style names like "Bossa" or "Ballad" in Onyx, you'll see names like "Sting's Fields of Gold", or "D.Stewart & C.Dulfer's Lily Was Here."
