On the other hand, if you don't have a C compiler, saolc is currently
your only option, slow though it is. You can get saolc from the
main web site, and it runs the same SAOL programs and gives you
the same sounds as sfront does. You don't need any compiler to
For the time being, using SAOL will feel like programming if you
have never used one of these music-languages before. I recommend
some good books to help get you started:
C. Dodge and T. Jerse, "Computer Music".
C. Roads, "the computer music tutorial".
Both are available from Amazon.com.
In the future, people will make user interface tools (like Buzz) so
that you can use the power of SA tools without having to learn the
SAOL language directly.
