OM-header3
Sometimes small improvements can make the biggest difference. Ondes v2 remains largely unchanged from the original version, one of our most enduringly popular instruments. But look closely and you'll see that the GUI is much crisper, more solid and clearer on the screen. And most importantly...

  This script has been festering on my hard drive for years, so I thought it was about time to release it into the wild.   It’s a harmonizer script that adds voices to an input melody.  You can limit the harmonizations to a key or a chord so that the result is somewhat harmonious. In...
