Mozart the Music Processor is music notation software designed to let you create scores
and parts quickly and
efficiently. It is a full featured but less
costly alternative to
other notation editors. Mozart has good
WINE versions since wine-1.0 and under
many older WINE
versions. With the
current service pack installed, Mozart's
latest version is Mozart-184.108.40.206 This
version has a gold
with wine-1.4(stable) An evaluation copy is available
at no cost from the Mozart
Mozart 11. Quoting its website:
"Mozart allows you to type in music notation - as easily as
entering text in a word processor - view it on the screen,
hear it, edit it, and then print high quality music scores
and individual parts for musicians."
Old test results
The test results for this version are very old, and as such they may not represent the current state of Wine. Please consider submitting a new test report.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
All the program's functions work. Playback *requires* a midi synth
such as Timidity++ or some other ALSA accessable software or
hardware synth to be installed and running.
Generally, if you can play a midi file with a sequencer/synth that ALSA
can find, Mozart can work with it.
What does not
1) Running the program *without* a synth and note-echo turned on
causes a recursive note entry (looping).
2) Although the rendering of the 'help' functions is much improved,
some functions ordinary with Windows require a third party CHM
What was not tested
External Midi keyboard input
In order to hear playback, the app requires a software synth
such as Timidity++ to be installed and running when the app is
started. Alternatively, a soundcard's hardware MIDI synth
running under ALSA and loaded with an appropriate GM soundfont
also works quite well.
Some keyboard shortcut keys are trapped by KDE or the Operating
System, so Mozart's shortcut re-mapping function may be needed
to re-map them. For any encountered difficulties, refer to
