Now a Reality!
When this slogan was first offered even JMT team didn't believe that it was
possible to create something good sounding in a minute, simply because to listen
to the result requires more time! However, Onyx Arranger 2.1 due to its 3 great
features - Performance Modeling, Auto-Harmonizing and Musical Object Morphing
really allows that. Look at this Onyx Arranger 2.1 video demo before downloading
the trial version, and you will see how fast and effectively Onyx works, and how
it can make your song in seconds!

We tried to find some compromise between video/sound quality and file size,
however it is still quite large. If its downloading is a problem for you, you

Hi, I am Alexander Vishniakoff, and I am going to show you 3 great features of
Onyx Arranger 2.1
Onyx Arranger 2.1 provides 3 unique features - Performance Modeling,
Auto-Harmonizing and accompaniment generation, using Music Object Morphing
technology that allows creating a well-done MIDI file in seconds. No matter what
you want to make - a radio commercial, a studio background track or just a high
quality MIDI file - Onyx Arranger is a means to do it fast and perfectly. And
yes, to get final results you will need good sounding synthesizer devices.
I pre-opened a special Onyx Arranger "00 Empty Project", which already includes
Orchestrator Style "They Dance Alone" - a texture of Sting's wonderful song
which will be morphed by Onyx according to my harmony. All Main Tracks in this
project already contain tuned MIDI FX Chains with Modelers, meant to "animate"
or "humanize" my solos, played on a MIDI keyboard. To these ready tunes I will
apply Onyx Harmonizer, to automatically generate Chord sequence.
Now I am ready to show you how a high-quality fragment is created in 60 seconds.
Note the time!
The first 4 measures in the project are
selected and Loop mode is turned on. To record the flute tune in the first track
I turn on the R button in the track and hit the Record button in the toolbar.
The tune will be animated by MIDI FX Chain,
and as soon as I stop recording process the controllers inserted by Modeler will
be seen in the track.
Now I am stopping the recording. Then I
select next four measures, turn on the R button in the second track, set the
pointer to the beginning of the loop, hit the Record button in the toolbar and
record my guitar solo.
Like the flute, the guitar will be animated
by MIDI FX Chain, and as soon as I stop recording process the controllers
inserted by Modeler will be seen in the track.
I am stopping the recording. Then I select
all 8 measures and both my tracks, to do the harmonizing.
I am starting playback and calling the
The Harmonizer first finds chords for my
tracks, using its default preset, but I select "07 Minor-Major PopJazz" preset
to get more sophisticated harmony.
You can see that now Orchestrator Style
"They Dance Alone" generates all tracks and the job is done!
You saw and heard as I performed a little show demonstrating 3 great features of
the program. You know that it's not speed that counts in every composer's and
arranger's work, but quality. Well, try Onyx Arranger 2.1 - a powerful, flexible
and intelligent real-time tool giving you a wide range of control parameters in
creating high-quality music. Enjoy!

All sounding examples were created using Onyx Arranger 2.1 and recorded with
KORG Triton and Yamaha MU100 synth modules in GM mode, to avoid overshadowing
the Onyx-generated texture by rich non-GM voices.
