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.
