If you've ever said to yourself, "Gosh, my MIDI tracks sounds lifeless," you
may want to check out NTONYX's Style Enhancer Micro. It won't put a live
band in your basement, but it can sure help your modules sound more realistic.
Style Enhancer Micro from NTONYX utilizes the company's Performance
Modeling process to breathe new life into sterile MIDI tracks... The folks at
NTONYX have a real winner here.
... I really enjoyed SEM a lot, and
I used it quite frequently in the past, including on a remix of Taylor Dayne's
"How Many" (the original track has gotten to number six on the Billboard
charts), so big thanks for a really great product.
... Style Enhancer is a unique and
powerful tool for use with midi creation, I don't know how I have managed to
work with out it for the past few years. It's a little complex but having played
around with the examples I am starting to understand its principles an its
power. Many thanks to the Ntonyx team for their hard work.
... At this moment I use Style Enhancer
Micro, it's realy a revolution in the MIDI world - Thanks to te NTONYX
team. With best regards.
... By the way, I get the sense that if
Style Enhancer can help composers better simulate the sounds of live violin,
viola, and cello musicians, this will go far in making Style Enhancer successful
in the electronic music marketplace. Sincerely.
... I have tried with the product I have
truely enjoyed. Great work.
... Attention: one of the music theory
and algorithm GURUS at NTONYX. As an enthusiastic user I want to send you my
compliments for the very useful software in SEM etc. The software does wonders
when transforming a flat MIDI melody to something which sounds "as a real
musician is playing".... wish you all good luck!
I don't normally endorse products. But your Style Enhancer Micro software is
the best musical tool to come out in the last 5 years. Unlike a lot of
"hyped-up" software, your SEM really works, it makes a midi performance data
sound like a real acoustical instrument performance, saves days of time and
money, and is worth the minimal investment.

... Style Enhancer was listed in the
"New Gear" section of the August 99 (most current) issue of Keyboard Magazine.
It was a short article, not a full-fledged review, and listed your website. The
feature that caught my eye was that it was a MIDI plug in for Cakewalk, which is
the sequencing program I compose and arrange with. After I visited the website
and listened to the MIDI examples, I was convinced. I had been using another
program (Jammer 3.0) to further develop my sequences, but the process was very
complicated. I'm hoping the SE will simplify my work! Musically.

motivate a person to learn how to use the program properly...

otherwise comparatively sterile...

is astonishing to believe that the final musical sequences resulted from a
