Fractal Music Composer

Fractal Music Composer is a powerful music editor. Students build their own musical phrases out of notes from their choice of multiple keys and musical scales. Compositions are built from notes and phrases playing on assorted instruments. Fractal editing operations create self-similar sequences across different time and sound scales. Students can save MIDI output of their creations, which can play their music on almost any computer.
