in this article its spelled "Soundworks" all one word, rather than "Sound Works"

steinberg had a similar product called "synth works"  which seems to be the equal counterpart to "sound works"
"sound works" being for the sampler editors + "synth works" being for the synthesizer editors

there was also one for the Ensoniq Mirage + Possibly other samplers of the late 80s
and the casio FZ-1 http://manuals.fdiskc.com/flat/Casio%20FZ-1%20Owners%20Manual.pdf




some more info here on the different sampler products that were supported by the soundworks product

Soundworks Mirage    Ensoniq Mirage    8 bits    32 kHz

Soundworks Prophet 2000    Prophet 2000    12 bits    42 kHz

looks like the soundworks editor was an addon for existing STEINBERG PRO-24 users on the ATARI ST platform
prior to cubase being released who were using the SMP-24 midi interface
