This stack will dictate SATB progressions of five chords that students can write, analyze, and grade. Instructions come with the stack (see "Stack" menu). Sound defaults to MIDI device out of the modem port. If MIDI is not available, use the "Audio" menu to play from the Macintosh. Students may use this stack free of charge. Instructors wanting to use the stack for testing will need to request the "4-Pt Dict Toolbox" and "Decoder" from email@example.com
This stack is ideal for creating animated graphs of homophonic forms such as sonata-allegro, song-form with trio, rondo, etc. Using simple point and click operations, students can calibrate formal outlines and program notes to compact disk recordings. The companion also allows the importation of notated themes and historical information. Form Companion will run on Hypercard Player (make sure the Player is set for minimum RAM of 1200 or some graphics may not appear).
This stack is ideal for creating animated graphs of fugues, inventions, or chorale preludes. It shows the voice in which the subject, motive, or cantus firmus appears as well as countersubjects, pedal tones, sequences, augmentations/diminutions, double counterpoint, melodic inversions, etc. Each timeline may be calibrated to as many as three different compact disk recordings. Counterpoint Companion requires the full programmers version of Hypercard to create timelines. After timelines have been created, they will run on Hypercard Player.
This game is designed to teach canonic operations such as contrary and retrograde motion and imitation at intervals other than the unison. The student writes the leader while the computer writes the follower and indicates simple mistakes of dissonance, unacceptable parallels, and doubled or unresolved leading tones. The computer will also encrypt the counterpoint, illustrating how composers of the 17th and 18th centuries would have employed enigmatic symbols to create puzzle canons. Requires the Sonata screen font (and printer font to print). Will run on Hypercard Player (set to 1600 RAM). Will NOT run in virtual memory.
