Software News   Software News : New Software Sampler "Phonolith" Prerelease 0.3, Horny MIDI Sequencer Update 1.2
   posted by Timo on 25-Dec-2006 16:12:10 (2683 reads)
Inutilis Software relaunched its website with some new products:

Phonolith is a software instrument for AmigaOS 4.x, which plays sampled waveforms. It's usable with Horny and other CAMD based sequencers, or just a connected MIDI keyboard.

Horny is a midi sequencer for OS 3.5-9 and OS 4.x in the style of e.g. "Logic®" or "Cubase®". Its focus is on easy and uncomplicated usage.

In addition to this, I uploaded many old games, I created with AMOS many years ago.

Nice! Phonolith sounds good addition to Horny. Good to see development in software sampler area.

"Horny" looks really good. I like the GUI alot. Nice, clean and easy to use. Very important for your creativity. Will audio (Recording, Softwaresynths etc.) be supported in future versions?

Audio support is not possible with the current code base of Horny. So I decided to rewrite it completely. I already started, but now I want to reach Phonolith version 1.0 before.
