Lime Music Notation Software for Old Macs

Version 9.00

Lime was written by Lippold Haken and Dorothea Blostein.

These are the machine requirements for running Lime on Old Macs:

To install Lime for Macintosh OS 9 or earlier:

For modern Macs go to Lime for Mac OSX.

On Windows and Mac OSX, Basic Lime may be used free of charge.  Donations are welcome and go towards the development of facilities for Low Vision and Blind musicians.

On Mac OS 9 and earlier, as an alternative to the full-featured Lime program, you may download the Lime Viewer: Lime Viewer for OS 9 (LimeViewer100os9.sea.hqx, 0 kbytes) or the Previous Release Lime Viewer (for OS 7, OS 8, and 68k, LimeViewer100.sea.hqx, 0 kbytes).  The Lime Viewer will never ask for payment; it allows you to view, print, and listen to Lime files, but it does not allow editing of the music.

We encourage you to distribute Lime.  Please distribute the complete and unaltered Lime folder which you download from here.

There have been 44163 Macintosh Lime downloads (plus 14104 Lime Viewer downloads and 37391 abbreviated manual downloads) from this web site since November 2000.
