JDubiel v0.9

Application Software for Pitch-Class Set Analysis

JDubiel is an application program for music analysis, which uses analytical methods employed in pitch-class set theory.

JDubiel is named after Professor Joseph Dubiel of Columbia University, with whom I was privileged to study pitch-class set theory. JDubial was originally written as DUBIEL in Objective-C, C, and C++ under NeXTSTEP and Linux as part of my dissertation project, Stravinsky's 12-Tone Music: Some Principles of Atonal Pitch Organization. Joe generously granted me permission to use his name for the program when I was writing it in 1995. Then he allowed me to use it again summer 2005 when I showed him a prototype of this new GUI version written in Java.

If you are a student currently studying pitch-class set theory, I strongly recommend that you should not use this program but should use just a pen and music sheets until you acquire solid skills in the theory.

Please send me bug reports, suggestions, comments, and requests for new functions, etc. at [my first name][at]music.columbia.edu.
