Updated instructions for Windows users:
The application has been found to run well on Windows 10, with no special settings.
Windows 8 users should set compatibility to “Windows XP service pack 3.”
For other Windows systems, please note the following:
The application will run properly in normal system mode on some Windows machines, but not others. Setting compatibility mode to Windows 95 has solved the problem in all known cases. If you receive an error message when you try to launch the application, log into Windows as an administrator and follow these steps:
- Locate and open the “MusicETwin” folder.
- Right-click on the “MusicET” application icon and click on the “Compatibility” tab.
- Place a checkmark in the check box for “Run this program in compatibility mode for.”
- Select “Windows 95” in the pull-down menu.
- Click on the “Apply” button.
- Click on the “Okay” button.
- Double-click on the “MusicET” application file again.
To report any problem, please send an email explaining the difficulty. Thank you!
How are the online materials and downloadable application different?
The Unit 1 online drills have the capability to save scores, so that you can maintain a record of your progress. Both cover the same essential material on intervals, chords and scales, but the online interface is somewhat different from that in the download application. Either will work in completing the printed worksheets in your Workbook, but the web version may provide the best sounding audio and work more reliably with newer computers and mobile devices.
The examples in Units 2-25 are the same in essential content. The web audio uses high-quality digital samples of real instruments while the application for download relies on the computer’s internal sound.
The new Unit 26, with Music Literature examples in 20-Century musical textures is only available in web audio at the present time.
