MusicWonk produces MIDI music based on algorithmic processes in real time. You compose by connecting "modules" - graphical objects that represent functions and processes - adjusting the parameters and instantly hearing the results as you go.
Interconnecting the modules is a drag and drop operation. Making edits is easy although you can't connect signals that are incompatible. MusicWonk will drive MIDI synthesizers, soft synths and sound cards directly, effectively "playing" them in real time or optionally responding to user or environmental parameters; it will also record directly to a standard MIDI file that can play your synth or card directly or can be imported into your notation based sequencer.
If you use a modular soft synth you will instantly feel at home with MusicWonk because its modular design and interactive, real time feedback working loop is similar. But MusicWonk is not a soft synth that creates the audio; it is a MIDI generating program that drives your soft synth, sound card or MIDI sound module as if you were playing it from a keyboard.
In summary, MusciWonk means creating the flow of music and selecting the sounds on your synth becomes a fluid interactive process because you always hear each change as you make it.
