Lime Music Notation Software for Macintosh

Version 9.00

Lime was written by Lippold Haken and Dorothea Blostein.

These are the machine requirements for running Macintosh Lime:

To install Lime for Macintosh:

If you would like to check out the beginning of the Lime manual without waiting for a long download, try ShortLimeManual900.pdf (255 kbytes).  This is the first part of the complete Lime manual that you get with Lime742.sea.hqx.

You may try out Lime and read its manual free of charge.  If you use it beyond trial runs, Lime will give you instructions for paying for the program (US$65 for an individual license).

As an alternative to the full-featured Lime program, you may download the Lime Viewer: Lime Viewer for OS X (LimeViewer900osx.sit.hqx, 3140 kbytes) or Lime Viewer for OS 9 (LimeViewer900os9.sea.hqx, 2290 kbytes) or the Previous Release Lime Viewer (for OS 7, OS 8, and 68k, LimeViewer727.sea.hqx, 2454 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 35786 Macintosh Lime downloads (plus 13652 Lime Viewer downloads and 35104 abbreviated manual downloads) from this web site since November 2000.
