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

The price is 29 Euros now (39 before), which still includes a keyfile for the software sampler Phonolith (OS4)!

New in this update:
-starts Phonolith and opens projects optionally (OS4 only)
-AmiUpdate support (OS4 only)
-application.library support (OS4 only)
-hold ALT while using mouse wheel to swap axis (OS4 only)
-mouse wheel works in edit window now (OS3/newmouse)
-latency setting for every port for automatic compensation

The future of Horny:
Because of bad code design, this will be the last major update of Horny. Before Phonolith, the development of a complete new Horny was startet for AmigaOS 4. This will be continued after Phonolith 1.0, but don't expect results in the near future.
