UltiMusE III By Michael J. Knudsen
|Year||1986 - 1994(?)|
|Publisher||2nd City Software|
|Author||Michael J. Knudsen|
|Requires||Coco 3, 512k OS9 Lv 2, Mouse/Joystick|
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!
