MacGAMUT 6 Instructor Web Installers
(6.1.5 for both Windows and Macintosh)
If you have a MacGAMUT 6 Instructor CD, please install the MacGAMUT Instructor materials from the CD BEFORE you install this Update.
If you have a copy of MacGAMUT 2003 these installers will UPGRADE MacGAMUT 2003 Instructor Disk software to the latest version of MacGAMUT 6 Instructor Disk software and files. These installers can only be used to UPGRADE the MacGAMUT 2003 Instructor Disk. If you do not have an original MacGAMUT 2003 Instructor CD or MacGAMUT 6 Instructor CD, you cannot use the MacGAMUT Instructor programs, so there's no reason to download these Web Installers.
Please note: MacGAMUT 6 User Disk Web Installers (6.1.9 for both Windows and Macintosh) are now available. Please Update your MacGAMUT 6 User Disk software or UPGRADE your MacGAMUT 2003 User Disk software too!
Click here to go to the User Disk Web Installer downloads.
Also, a slightly updated version of the MacGAMUT Presets and Libraries (corrects a tiny error in the MGProgressions 2003 and THProgressions 2003 libraries) is now available. To download these two revised libraries, click here.
Note: The Web Installers on this page do not include the Using Set Params video (a step-by-step demonstration of how you can use Set Params to customize MacGAMUT). Because of the size of this video, it is available as a separate download.
Click here to go to the Instructor Disk Extras download page. In addition, the MacGAMUT 6 User Disk includes some extras that your students will find useful. Because of the size of these additional materials, they are available as separate downloads for anyone UPGRADING or Updating MacGAMUT User Disk software. Click here to go to the User Disk Extras download page.

NOTE: If the installer window does not appear when you think it should, it is probably hidden behind other windows that are open on your screen. In that case, you can minimize other windows so that the installer window shows.
MacGAMUT Instructor Disk InstallersSelect the installer for your computer's operating system below.
|Windows XP, NT, Vista, 7, 8||ID 6_1_5_Win_WE (4.8 MB)|
NOTE: This installer creates a MacGAMUT Instructor Folder in your Documents folder, and puts a copy of the MacGAMUT Guides, etc. folder in that Instructor Folder so you can easily access the various MacGAMUT Instructor text files (Instructor Guide, Keyboard Shortcuts, etc.) without using the Windows Start menu. This change was necessary because the traditional Start menu is not accessible in the default setup for Windows 8. If you do still have a Start menu, you will be able to access the files either from the Start menu or in your MacGAMUT Instructor Folder.
After downloading to a Windows computer, click "Run" on the "Download complete" dialog, or start by double-clicking the .exe file you have downloaded. Once the file has been unzipped, the installer will start automatically. Just follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation.
|Macintosh OS X (10.7 - 10.8)||ID 6_1_5 Mac SI (2.3 MB)|
|Macintosh OS X (10.4 - 10.6)||ID 6_1_5 Mac (2.3 MB)|
NOTE: The only difference between these two Macintosh installers is the installer itself. Exactly the same software and all other MacGAMUT files will be installed no matter which installer you use, but the new 10.8 (Mountain Lion) security features require a different installer that also works for 10.7 but is incompatible with earlier OS X versions.
MacGAMUT 6 Instructor Disk Changes since the original 6.0 CD version was released (latest version includes all of the following changes):
Version 6.1.5 changes:
Makes it easier to select components to be included in Check Stats reports and spreadsheet info by allowing instructors to select them by groups as well as individually.
Windows only: Fixes a bug in Enter/Edit Libraries that lost the “group” info when an entire level was duplicated.
Windows only: Improves the way file opening and saving works.
Macintosh only: Improves the way the library file selection dialog works in Set Params.
Includes revised presets and libraries specifically designed to accommodate changes in the second edition of The Musician’s Guide Series textbooks.
Includes some very minor improvements that most users are unlikely to notice.
Version 6.1.2a changes (Windows only):
Windows only: Slightly refines the Enter/Edit Libraries 6.1.2 changes dealing with Melodic Dictation and Harmonic Dictation exercises that cannot be shown in C Major/a minor.
Version 6.1.2 changes (Windows only):
Windows only: Enter/Edit Libraries 6.1.2 fixes the following:
- Fixes problems resulting from Harmonic Dictation exercises that could not be entered in or transposed to C Major/a minor because of range problems. The problem occurred only in levels where transposition of exercises was allowed.
- Fixes problems resulting from Melodic Dictation exercises that could not appear in C major/a minor in any clef. The problem occurred only in levels where transposition and/or clef changes of exercises were allowed.
- Fixes problems with showing a very few Melodic Dictation exercises within Enter/Edit. The exercises themselves were fine, and they worked correctly in the user programs, but they looked odd in Enter/Edit.
Version 6.1.1 changes:
Introduces Enter/Edit Libraries for Windows! Enter/Edit allows instructors to edit, augment, or even replace any or all of the exercises in the various Rhythmic, Melodic, and/or Harmonic Dictation libraries furnished on the Instructor Disk.
If you are an Intel Macintosh user: You can use the new Enter/Edit application on your own Macintosh computer. First, install a Windows OS in Boot Camp on your Mac, and then install the MacGAMUT Instructor programs for Windows on your Mac’s Windows partition.
Includes three very minor corrections to the original Melodic Dictation and Harmonic Dictation libraries (MGMelodies 2003.mgm and MGProgressions 2003.mgh) and to the Kostka/Payne Tonal Harmony Harmonic Dictation library (THProgressions 2003.mgh). (Most recent changes were made in early October 2009.)
Version 6.1.0 changes:
Major addition! Adds special presets and an HD library for use with Kostka/Payne’s Tonal Harmony textbook. For detailed information about the contents and organization of these materials, please see the Tonal Harmony Notes and MacGAMUT Assignments Summary files. The Kostka-Payne & MacGAMUT Coordination file offers a sample outline designed to help you coordinate Tonal Harmony and MacGAMUT Aural-training, Written, and Keyboard assignments throughout a two-year sequence of theory and aural-training courses.
IMPORTANT: Changes the installation procedure to give you complete control over where the MacGAMUT Presets & Libraries are stored on your computer. You now need to download these files separately from this Web Installer. For more info, see A Quick Start Guide.
Adds several minor refinements (too minor and too numerous to list separately) that make the MacGAMUT Instructor programs even more user-friendly.
Windows only: Fixes a problem some Windows computers might have in recognizing MacGAMUT Instructor CDs in external or secondary CD/DVD drives.
