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.

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 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
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
• 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
• 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
• 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

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.”,
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

"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
