Matrix Maker X is designed for use in the composition and/or analysis of twelve-tone music. It is designed to facilitate the easy creation and formatting of twelve-tone matrices (12 x 12 arrays) used in the composition and/or analysis of twelve-tone music, as well as the creation and formatting of 7 x 7, 6 x 6, and 5 x 5 matrices (or, for that matter, of any dimension from 2 x 2 through 12 x 12). Any number of matrices can be created without exiting and re-initializing the application; this is particularly advantageous if the program is being used in a networked environment.
This version replaces earlier with a new Universal Binary application that runs natively on both Power PC and Intel Mac computers under OS X. This version also has the ability to print the analysis on a separate page and uses a "drag install" rather than installer-based installation method, with the Matrix TrueType font included within the application package rather than installed separately in the fonts folder.
