Symbolic Composer 7 For the Mac
SCOM 7.0.5 Maverics is now here!
2014, MAR 17 --- Tonality Systems today launch Symbolic Composer 7 with integrated playback and notation. The new release works together with all Sequencers & Notation Software.

It also supports Apple's MainStage, which enables to make full production-quality audio right from SCOM scores.

SCOM 7 works together with Logic, Sibelius, Finale, Encore, Digital Performer, Reason or Reactor.
Add Interaction. Symbolic Composer 7 now lets you listen your score in final sounds.

Make music even without any programming just by playing Listen button. Generate sequences from SCOM's vast libraries. Drag MIDI snippets into your sequencer, tweak your sounds and assemble your masterpiece together.

SCOM 7 playing contemporary score using traditional orchestra with 3D-visualization. Does 12-tone sound familiar, how about 52-tone music? Experiment freely with advanced algorithm such as permutations and probabilities.

SCOM covers past 500 years of compositional traditions and the tools for the future. SCOM's rich music programming language supplies the composer the tools to program any music styles.

SCOM playing Arturia DubStep Drum-Machine and Analog Oberheim Synth. SCOM is style-independent and applies as well to hip-hop, technopop and trance.

Making cool Sequences? Searching inspirations for the next Hit? Explore SCOM 7's inspiring collection of Snippets and Score Ideas.

SCOM 7 playing reversion of Bach's original 3-voice Canon. SCOM suits for the classic composer seeking seeking a modeling and teaching tool, too.

"SCOM is a complete interactive musical encyclopedia at your fingertips. It covers both the past and the contemporary music making. It also suits in trendy chart music composing", says composer and music educator Nigel Morgan from UK.

Symbolic Music Language

Symbolic Composer's Music Language allows composing music of any style and complexity. It uses intuitive and flexible sections to organize scores in time and melodic space.

• Historical & Contemporary Music functions supply the Classic Compositional Tools. Discover the secrets of Bach's contrapuntal methods as well as Schoenberg's 12-system.

• Complete chord, scale and micro-tonal libraries maximize creative freedom. And you can create your own chords, scales and tunings, too.

• Mathematical Generators & Processors provide advanced fractals, chaos and number-theory functions for experimentation. Essential tools of a contemporary composer.

• Symbolic Generators & Processors supply recursion, L-systems, fibonacci, brownian, pink and 1/f noise. Transform, morph, analyze, organize and combine melodies, chords, rhythms in full creative freedom.

• Programmable Neurons add programmable intelligence to scores. Apply "brain algorithms" to convert anything into any other without "Lisp" programming experience.

• Programmable Library allows sequential drum, melodic, dynamic and harmonies to be used like in tradition, or jumping ahead with intelligence. Lay out material in libraries, and use templates to pick them randomly, still in strict structure.

• Explore and Simulate data of unknown origins. It may express as tinnitus in ears, visions, dreams, auras, brain fog, or uncontrollable behavior. An urge of impulse to do something right now? Gain vision into mind internals with SCOM and start publishing your music of visions.

System Requirements

OS X 10.6-10.9 (Mavericks). SCOM 7 produces MIDI files and plays them in 3D. Use MainStage or other audio app to make pro-audio recording. Windows XP/7/8 also supported.


Symbolic Composer runs first on Demo Mode, which cancels Eval. Otherwise it performs as in real. Open up a score and instantly hear the music and view notation. Explore SCOM's function libraries without limits. Authorization restores Eval, which lets you produce your own scores.



“Symbolic Composer was one of the first systems that I encountered that explored the art of algorithmic composing interactively. The system functions are selected from hierarchical menus and pasted on the editor, so it’s a completely different approach to musical compositions. It’s like composing music from one’s DNA structure.”, Composer Richard Devine.


"Nowadays, symmetries are widely used in musical composition, for instance in the various transformation tools of sequencers, and explicitly in the author‚s prestor (see chapter 49) and in Opcode‚s MAX or in music software with fractal composition tools as realized by Mesias Maiguashca [220] or by the ingenious Symbolic Composer software",  Mazzola G., Author of Topos Of Music (If the direct link has changed due publisher, search the title at Springeronline


"I wish to thanks people that have contributed in important way to the creation of this book:
   All the developers of the wonderful algorithmic composition software Symbolic Composer, that I have used for the composition of the exercises - and Douglas R. Hofstadter for the beauty of his ideas on the perception, and parallels to artificial intelligence", Claudio Martini, Author Of I Pattern Automutanti
