Composition made easy
Automatic three and four-part composition (styles: J.S. Bach, Max Reger, Jazz, Pop plus creating your own styles), automatic harmonizing, automatic fugue and canon composition.
tonica 16 contains functions that improve the playability of compositions for keyboard instruments. For example, chord notes can now be entered and edited as in capella. When composing, tonica optionally converts the composition into a chord representation - the so-called piano score - which is easier to read and play on keyboard instruments.

While other programs try to delude users into thinking they are gifted composers with a primitive automatic accompaniment, tonica uses a totally different approach: Based on neural networks, tonica is actually able to compose in the style of the old masters. tonica will solve the same task in different ways.
