Announce: Common Music 3.3.0


A binary release of Common Music 3.3.0 is available for download at

Common Music (CM) is an algorithmic music composition environment. It makes sound by transforming a high-level representation of musical structure into a variety of control protocols for sound synthesis and display. The easiest way to work with Common Music is to get Grace (Graphical Realtime Algoritmic Composition Enviroment), an application implemented in JUCE that contains Common Music and S7 Scheme with audio connections to MIDI, SndLib, Csound, and Fomus.

For the complete list of new features, enhancements and bug fixes see the changelog:

To use CM with the Fomus music notation package you need to install Fomus:

a native Windows build of Fomus should be available in a day or so. Examples of Fomus usage inside Grace are the Help>Examples>Fomus menu
