Tell us your thoughts!

We really want to hear from our users! This is where you can submit your ideas to us, request a new feature, tell us what you like or dislike about Noteflight, and find out what our current plans are!

NOTE: If you are having a technical problem, please email support@noteflight.com rather than posting here.

  1. Make scores able to be edited by more than one person.

    Make noteflight like google docs so that more than one person can edit a score in live time and you can see each others edits in live time. I tried doing this in noteflight and it ended up discarding all edits that were made while we were both on and we couldn't see what the other person was doing causing confusion. Making scored edited by 1+ person in live time would be helpful for making colaborations on scores when people are at different locations.

  2. Give individual instrument names for drums

    In the default drum set, the pitches are played without any indication to which drums are playing them (snare, toms, cymbals.). It would be nice to have it say what instruments are being played or add in functionality for a key/percussion map.

  3. allow for the number of strings in tablature to be changed.

    Some basses and bass music call for more than four strings. Some guitars and guitar music call for more than six strings. I wish Noteflight would allow you to add strings to your tabs. I'm sick of writing out tabs for a five string bass on guitar tabs because at the end, when I go print, I have an extra string that throws me off when I go to read the sheet music.

  4. Braces/brackets for instrument groups

    All other notation software companies like Sibelius etc. have put in the most basic of music notation signs - braces/brackets for voice and instrument groups. I am writing for SATB but for it to be published it must have a brace. The finished article has got to look professional and at the moment the finished score doesn't. At the moment I have to transfer it to Musecore and it's getting rather tedious. Please, please can you give this your priority?

  7. add more comprehensive jazz articulations!

    This would include the following:

    -Trombone glissandos that function like the already implemented bend (used in context for guitars), but have a more recognizable squiggly line
    -Bends (the rounded "U" symbol above a note that indicates to lip the pitch down
    -Squiggly lines in general (used for falls)
    -Curved lines (for implied scoops, doits, and shorter falls)

    Of course, this need not be used only for jazz, but since these occur very commonly in jazz repertoire, I feel like this would be very useful!
    Apologies if there is an ongoing thread for this, but that only means many people want…

  8. Add different historical temperaments

    It would be cool to be able to change the temperament to a pre-20th century tuning, to add a more authentic feel to some of the classical music composed on the platform.

    Some temperaments that could be added might be:
    -Pythegorian
    -Just
    -Mean-tone
    -Well

  9. Fix the problem where accidentals only appear in one octave

    When you put in an accidental, if you write that same note in a different range, upon playback, the accidental will not be played for the other octave.

  10. Give simple answers to simple questions in help, and provide links to take me to where I can do what I searched for

    I am trying to figure out how to "solo" a playback, playback only one voice. There must be a simple way to do it, but I give up. I've search help, and it isn't there. Why can't I simply ask, "solo a playback" or "playback only one voice" and get a simple answer with a link to click that will take me to that function? It is so frustrating.

  14. Not delete my progress

    I spent about an hour making a song, a very nice one, probably the best one I've ever done. But then sometimes i try to click on a note to delete it, but noteflight gets really laggy, so it actually, for no reason, selects the entire clarinet part that i was working on. I press backspace, it's all gone. No amount of ctrl z, undo button, or anything else can save my work from the infinite void of terrible design. I attempted to recreate it. It was worse than before but the situation just ended up happening again after about…

  16. Allow *direct* editing of Guitar Chord Diagrams

    The current implementation is the wrong approach. Having chords tied to the input text is not utile, intuitive or flexible. For example the most commonly used open form of G (with the 2nd string fingered at the 3rd fret) is not in your chord list. As your system stands right now I have no way to make the most common form of one of the most commonly used chords on the guitar. You need to go back to the drawing board on this one.

  17. Add the option to change the number of strings on an instrument

    The oldest version of this question is from 2011 with 243 upvotes and yet there still exists no option to tab for say, a 5-string bass or 7 string guitar. These instruments are not so uncommon that its not worth implementing and as someone who plays and wants to utilize a 5 string bass in their music I have absolutely 0 way to notate this without going through awkward and cheap workarounds.

  19. Add the modern pedal feature.

    Their pedal feature uses the variation that looks similar to this: Ped *. Look at any contemporary piece, you will not find that. Instead you will fund the variation that looks like ____/\____. This is necessary for pieces that feature a pedal that briefly "lifts" and presses back down, which is quite a lot. In some pieces I just cannot use noteflight because of this. Please fix this, or else I will have to resort to using another website, and most of those are annoying, laggy, hard to use and just frustrating. And this is making even THIS sight frustrating.

  20. Allow us to print and format choir reduction parts that include all 4 voice parts.

    I know we can individually format each part, but it would be great to be able to format and print all four voice parts and just leave out the piano and other instruments that may be accompanying the choir. It makes a huge difference when working with a choir that they can see when other parts are coming in and their dynamics compared to those of others, etc. Is there a way to do this and I just missed it?
