Description from the packaging.

Sonix lets you synthesize musical instruments, compose music, and control MIDI instruments. Compose with pre-programmed instruments or create your own using the powerful, built-in synthesizer program. You can create any type of music your heart desires. Use the on-screen music editing system and see each note as it's entered into your composition. Combine multiple instruments and digitized sounds and play them back with the Amiga's internal sound system. Use Sonix to control MIDI instruments with the MIDI controller.
