17 years ago, Mr. Nguyen Anh Kiet and his colleague Tran Viet Hung won the Prospect Award in the 2005 Vietnamese Talent Award for the product “Automatic Mixer” (MIDI Utility). The idea of writing this software was proposed by Mr. Nguyen Anh Kiet in 1995, and it was not completed until 2005.

At that time, in the world, there were many automatic mixing software circulating among musicians and amateur music players such as: Band in a Box of PGMusic, Jammer Sound Maker of SoundTrek, XGWorks of Yamaha, etc. However, the MIDI Utility software of Vietnamese authors was born with outstanding features, faster, more compact, and more efficient.

If the existing software of other countries requires the user to enter the chords for each beat of the song by themselves, which means that they need to have certain musical knowledge, MIDI Utility does not require it.

MIDI Utility can rely on the notes in your melody to find the right chords, can create the intro, know how to do the Drum Fill, create additional parts and create the Ending, etc.

“Once you have entered the notes of the melody, it will help you create harmony in seconds to the tunes you want like Cha-Cha, Disco, Rhumba, Tango, etc. This is an automatic mixing sound software that has a mode that automatically composes the harmony according to the melody. MIDI Utility users only need basic knowledge of music theory and office computing. In less than 10 seconds, the software produces a complete mix, “said Nguyen Anh Kiet.

Because of those outstanding features, after winning the Vietnamese Talent Award in 2005, MIDI Utility was guaranteed by Microsoft and put on its website for sale.

The author team doesn’t stop after achieving lots of recognition, they continue to research, develop and improve MIDI Utility. After 10 years, 3 authors Nguyen Anh Kiet, Tran Viet Hung and Vo Cong Dien have completed and released the X6 version of MIDI Utility. The highlight of the X6 version is that the software can control external MIDI devices such as guitars (Yamaha, Korg, Roland series), sound boxes, and accompaniment boxes…
