Important notice about MTC version 2 and version 3:

MTC 3 is the new version of the Musician Training Center, released in 2022. It currently contains two courses, GST and AIET, and more will be added in the future.

MTC 3 does NOT replace MTC 2, rather it is to be used side by side with it. Each version contains different courses and training tools, and we recommend that you install both versions and use whatever you find most useful and enjoyable from one version or the other.

Your MTC account works on both versions in the same way.

Both MTC 2 and MTC 3 run on the latest versions of Windows and macOS. (Previously the Mac version of MTC 2 didn't run on Catalina and later versions of macOS, but the problem has been solved and now it runs on the latest Macs as well)

Windows installation steps

Note: Some other installation warnings may be displayed on different versions of Windows or by different anti-virus programs, but in any case, once again, please rest assured that Musician Training Center is 100% safe to install and use.

Program registration

Right after installation, the program runs in "Unregistered Mode", which is fine if you just want to get an idea of how things work.

But if you want to get more from the program, create personalized exercises, use advanced and premium versions of various courses and training tools, you need to create a free MTC account and use it to register your copy of the program.

Uninstall MTC from a Windows PC

Here is how to completely remove MTC 2 and/or MTC 3 from a Windows machine.

Step 1: Open Windows' Control Panel, then open "Programs and Features" (or "Add/Remove Programs" in older versions of Windows), and then locate "Musician Training Center" and click on "Uninstall":

Windows uninstall 1

The above step removes all the files that were written during installation.

Other files were created after installation, during normal program use. To remove them:

Step 2: Delete the following folders and their contents:

C:\Program Files\Musician Training Center (installation folder on old 32-bit Windows machines)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Musician Training Center (installation folder on 64-bit Windows machines)
C:\ProgramData\Micrologus\MTC (MTC user data)
My Computer\My Documents\Musician Training Center (MTC automatic backups)

After that, MTC is completely uninstalled from your Windows machine.

Note that MTC 2 and MTC 3 are installed in separate folders, named with a 2 or 3 as the case may be, and installing or uninstalling one version does not affect the other.

Important macOS installation tips

Mac download warnings

When you download the above DMG installation files, Safari may warn you about the danger of downloading files from the internet and ask your permission to proceed. Please rest assured that MTC is a very well-behaved program that will never cause any harm to your computer, and allow the download to proceed.

Mac installation

Double click the downloaded DMG file to open it. Then grab the icon of the MTC program with the mouse and drop it over Applications. (This will copy the program from the downloaded DMG file into the main Applications folder)

Mac install 1

If you already have a previous version installed, your Mac will offer to keep both versions, or replace the old one with the new. Choose Replace.

First run

The first time you run a new version of MTC on your computer, your Mac will probably block it with a warning.

The warning will either tell you that the program is from an unidentified developer, or that the program is "damaged" and cannot run. Here is how to proceed:

If the message says the program is from an unidentified developer:

1. Click Cancel (do not click "Move to Bin/Trash")

2. Click the Apple menu, then "System Preferences", and then "Security & Privacy".

3. There you will find a message saying the MTC application was blocked, and a button to allow it to run.

4. Click the button to allow it to run, and then click [Open] if your Mac will ask your permission one more time. After that, the program will run normally.

Here is one of many similar YouTube videos showing how to do the above. YouTube - unblock "unidentified developer" programs on Mac

If the message says that "the program is damaged and cannot run":

In reality the program is not damaged, but it has been blocked by your Mac. To unblock it, do these 4 steps:

1. Open Terminal and type this, without the quotes: "xattr -rc "

2. Note that there must be a blank space after the above text.

3. Grab the icon of the MTC program that is "damaged" from the Applications folder, and drop it over the Terminal window. (This will insert the file path to the MTC program after the "xattr -rc " text. That's why you must make sure there is a blank space there, to separate the filename from the rest)

4. Hit Enter.

After the above command is processed, MTC will run normally, and you can close Terminal.

How to uninstall MTC from your Mac

1. Open the Applications folder, select the Musician Training Center icon, and move it to the Bin/Trash.

The above step deletes the program from Applications, but your training data is still on your hard drive, and if you install MTC again, you will find your MTC data still present.

To completely remove the training data as well:

2: In Finder, click on Go, then "Go to folder" and then type:  ~/Library/

Mac uninstall library

From the Library folder, open the "Application Support" folder and then delete the com.micrologus.mtc folder that you'll find in it:

Mac uninstall library 2

And with that MTC is completely uninstalled from your Mac machine.

A detailed technical documentation of the MTC installation files is available at the Software Documentation page.
