Sweet Sixteen

Sequencer by Roni Music

Sweet Sixteen

By Roni Music

Sweet Sixteen was developed by Rolf Nilsson of Roni Music. He switched to PC and Mac around 1993 but updated the Atari version untill around 1997. It is still available in several flavours. A demo version, a Lite version (in which you can save only in S16 Song format) and the full version. I use the Lite version myself for a MIDI file player as it loads MIDI files very fast which you can also tweak with the editors and MIXER section. However for the full use of all the features, please register the program. (see link section)

One thing very noticable in Sweet Sixteen is the resemblance to C-labs Notator SL. Rolf admits he was influenced by Notators design. The same arrange screen as well the keyboard shortcuts are present in both programs. If you cannot find Notator and like how Notator handled songs and patterns, then Sweet Sixteen is for you! There are also some "modern" features such as a GM style mixer, with excellent graphics to boot!

Sweet Sixteen is a comprehensive and powerful MIDI sequencer for PC/Windows and Atari ST/STE range of computers. Sweet Sixteen offers Piano Roll, List and Transform edit pages as well as a dedicated Mixer page you can use for your favourite synthesizer. Capable of playback on 24 + 24 tracks, Sweet Sixteen is ideal for the absolute beginner but powerful enough to satisfy experienced "power" users.

The use of MIDI controllers is fully supported to allow control of all the subtle nuances of expression and dynamics demanded by the discerning MIDI programmer.

Powerful, yet user friendly, Sweet Sixteen offers features far in advance of its more well known competitors.
