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 (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 36796 Macintosh Lime downloads (plus 13978 Lime Viewer downloads and 36894 abbreviated manual downloads) from this web site since November 2000.
