2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

UltiMusE III By Michael J. Knudsen

Year 1986 - 1994(?)
Publisher 2nd City Software
Author Michael J. Knudsen
Media Disk
Requires Coco 3, 512k OS9 Lv 2, Mouse/Joystick
Graphic mode 640×200×4

This program is one of the best examples I've seen of what OS-9 Level II can really do.

The program is designed to edit and play music scores through a MIDI key board synthesizer. It is the only example of a program of this type running under OS-9 that I have seen.

UltiMusE III uses windows and a mouse for control. There is careful, thorough documentation, and even a tutorial for the novice user to install the program quickly and easily. The documentation carefully explains all terms, and shows how they might be used. The tutorial is excellent, because it takes you from the "in the package" stage to the "up and running" stage, quickly and easily. If you follow the directions, you can't miss.

The music quality is exceptional, and the editing feature provides a means to access all the elements from vocal to violin, and tells the user how to use them to make wonderful music.

This is a must for music lovers!
