GNIStyle for Windows and DOS

What is GNIStyle? GNIStyle is a style editor for KORG i-series style files (*.sty). KORG i3 and i30 have an internal style editor, but most other i-series keyboards don't support editing style files. GNIStyle converts a series of MIDI files (each for a style variation) into a Korg i3 file and back. Most i-series models can load the style file directly into Korg keyboard. Free style format converters exist for other models. GNIStyle supports 10 button variations (intro1, intro2, ending1, ending2, fill1, fill2, var1, var2, var3, var4) and up to 36 chord depending variations, 6 tracks (drums, percussion, bass, acc1, acc2, acc3). GNIStyle Windows version contains functions for testing the set of midi files for style compatibility, and operations to prepare midi files to increase style compatibility.
Shareware You can use the demo with the 3 variation limit (Intro1, Var1, Ending1) for unlimitted time to create simple styles. The full version supports up to 36 style variations.

What is necessary to edit styles? GNIStyle converts new or existing style files into small MIDI files. The software help (F1 key) explains the steps to create or modify style files.
The MIDI files must be edited with a MIDI sequencer (to enter notes). GNIStyle does not contain MIDI sequencer software. There are many sequencer products that can be used: Cakewalk, Powertracks Pro ...
System requirements GNIStyle runs with Windows system and commandline utilities with DOS/Windows. It was tested with Windows 95/ME/2000. It might run with other systems (98/NT) but we are not able to test on these systems. Before purchasing GNIStyle license please download current demo version and try it on your computer.
GNIStyle player uses your soundcard or MIDI card to play MIDI songs. A MIDI cable connection to Korg i-series keyboard is useful.
Who should use GNIStyle? GNIStyle users have a KORG i-series keyboard or module. Many models don't have an internal style editor and use GNIStyle to create or modify styles on computer. GNIStyle works only for keyboards and modules that can load and play Korg i-series styles. Style testing is mainly done directly on the keyboard, some tests can already be done in MIDI files especially when the KORG device is connected to computer.
Professional style developers prefer editing styles using their computer and MIDI sequencer software. GNIStyle helps them to convert quickly between KORG styles and MIDI files.
GNIStyle DOS conversion tools are usually only used by users that can run DOS utilities on their system but not the Windows program. It requires knowledge about DOS commandline usage.
