Modus is an open source, cross-platform C++ library which allows you to handle music from code. This means that you can:

* Manage interactive and adaptive music
* Use some kind of algorithm to improvise
* Represent visually (simulate) musical performances
* Select in real time the instruments that are going to play a previously written song
* Let the user take part on the performance through any type of interface, by playing an instrument, changing the tempo, choosing the instruments, designing the structure of the song, etc.
* Define song structures with metric modulations, accelerandos and ritardandos
* Write your own scores, which can then be assigned to instruments to be played
* Play along with a pre-recorded song or represent the performance
* Everything else that comes into your head

    The jazz improvisation app is really fun. I could waste an hour diddling away at it. ;-)
