SoundHelix is a free versatile Java framework for algorithmic random music composition. SoundHelix can generate random songs, play them (for example, on any number of MIDI devices or MIDI-capable software synthesizers) and is highly customizable using XML configuration.

A great remake of the legendary Amiga Algomusic (from the same author).
Very nice project: music well composed!
What a fantastic project! A useful random music generator that creates music you actually want to listen to!
Great project! I recommend this program strongly! Very best and fast random music generation s! It's great, although it should also install the generator with it!
At first I thought "It's a random music generator, it's bound to be bad." Though about 10 seconds later I was purely amazed. This program needs more recognition.
