  NTONYX StyleMorpher 2.4 Press-release,
June, 2000.




  NTONYX, the innovator and leading developer of software based on Performance Modeling technology now announces StyleMorpher 2.4 (SM2.4) - is an easy to use, real-time tool for Morphing the Harmony, Meter, Rhythm, Voices (and more) of an initial MIDI song.

This new product is the result of further development of the unique NTONYX technology which allows to transform a song from Waltz to Beat, from Blues to Swing, from Rock Ballads to Ethnic Pulse in 5/4 Meter, from Blue to Cheerful, from Romantic to Melancholy, and back and much more.

Harmony, Meter, Rhythmic Structure, Music Figures, Set of Voices are very important components of a composition. Even subtle changes can make a huge difference in the feel and texture of a song. Now it is very easy to create a vast number of entirely "new" songs, patterns or riffs on the basis of just one initial song (or fragment of a song) using NTONYX StyleMorpher's powerful algorithms.

StyleMorpher 2.4 - is an easy to use and powerful MIDI tool, focused towards composers, arrangers and music fans. SM2.4 is intended to create many different types of transformations of MIDI-songs or fragments of songs. Thus, SM2.4 creates rhythm, meter, harmonic and other translations of an original MIDI source material.

The principal of SM2.4's work is applying an algorithm to the initial song or song fragment. The rules of this algorithm create a translation of the original work. SM2.4 has 6 types of transformations determined by the algorithm used. These algorithms are sensitive to the musical content of the selected MIDI file hence using the same transformation on different MIDI files will provide different results. This program allows to create a new song using the transformations. The final resulting songs depends both upon the original source MDI file and the type of transformation selected. Thus, SM2.4 applies special algorithms to a MIDI song and creates a harmonically, rhythm, meter, etc. altered song. It gives the composer and arranger previously unaccessable, unique and unlimited features for music creation.

Windows NT/2000/XP-compatible sound card and/or MIDI interface.

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.
