Mozart the Music Processor

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 performance under
WINE versions since wine-1.0 and under many older WINE
versions.  With the current service pack installed, Mozart's
latest version is Mozart-  This version has a gold
rating with wine-1.4(stable)

An evaluation copy is available at no cost from the Mozart ­website

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."

What works

What works
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

  file viewer.


What was not tested

External Midi keyboard input

Additional Comments

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 the quite friendly and knowledgeable Yahoo user group at: Export of image file formats such as JPG, PNG, GIF,TIF, and BMP may require a native Windows gdiplus DLL and winecfg setting to use it.
