You can try Pure-Data (very similar to Max) which is free. I use it for MIDI
sequencing, algorithmic composition/improvisation ... (even neural network!
using matrix operations)

You can also take a look at some books on Max/C++ and MIDI for algo composition
or music analysis (let me know if you know other titles).

That is my current reading, which is not bad, but less interesting than I tought
(its a description of symbolic and sub-symbolic processes (including neural
network, backpropagation, etc. for music analysis and composition, very case
specific a little boring if you don't know about C or C++):
Machine Musicianship (Robert Rowe)

I don't know this one, but I plan to read it:
Compositing Interactive Music (Todd Winkler)
