"SCOM 7.3 has worked beautifully and I'm amazed how quickly I get scores done with the new Define Score menus! Itís also awesome how it compiles even my very early scores, which needed just ticks-to-ratios conversion. Thereís indeed some magic in SCOM, which is not found in any other composition platforms!" (Nigel Morgan, the author of Parametric Composition book and SCOMís N-Gel Module & Chicago Quartet score contribs).
"I feel like this is a MAJOR jump for SCOM 7. Thanks for the
continually development. Not many programs have that kind of
pedigree in an essentially steady and linear improvement in

Overview On The Symbolic Composer
Symbolic Composer is one of the richest music programming environments available for the Macintosh. It is not the simplest music language, but that's due music is a complex structure of hierarchies. If you want to learn more music composition and programming Symbolic Composer Pro is the best music composition environment available for the Macintosh.
You'll find here the basic concepts how a score is put together, and the hierarchies you'll be dealing. The topics cover all the SCOM basics, which are timesheets & zones, symbols, tonalities, metrics, functions, sections and classes, and motives & methods.
Symbolic Composer uses 2 grammars to define the section and instrumentation structures: The section grammar and the instrumentation grammar. Both are tree-like structures with as many elements and levels as needed. Each node contains definitions of class properties.
Class properties are inherited with the inheritance trees of the section and instrumentation grammars, like in above. Inheritation mechanism allows to define common properties among instruments and sections.
Multiple grammars can be used when inheritation and section structures differ, or when class properties are to be inherited differently.
