  1. 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

    • 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…

      • Add instrument mixing throughout songs.

        Basically, it's the mixer bar, but there's a way to make it change as the song plays. Maybe there's a pencil icon next to a setting (volume or channel) and it allows you to draw the setting on the music which changes up and down throughout notes and measure.

        Let's use an example: You click the pencil icon on "volume" and draw a line going left to right in the music, and you're able to move the line up and down, the higher the line is, the higher the volume, the lower the setting, the lower the volume. This is…

        • Be able to edit the title in strip and flow layout

          It is a hassle to change the title and composer when started in strip or flow layout. What is currently required is to change to page mode (which usually takes a while and lags out) then select and type. It would be helpful for there to be a quicker way on strip or flow layout, for large pieces this is a hassle.

          • Add a Better Glissando

            I really love being on Noteflight and I also love the limitless opportunities it provides.

            Unfortunately, I have discovered slight problems with the software. In some compositions I have recently made, I have repeatedly tried to use the glissando option with terrible results. Instead of sliding up and down the fingerboard or extending a slide, it only moves up or down the chromatic scale.

            Not only this problem, but I am also not able to shape them the way I would like them to. The glissando does not continue through different notes (for example if I were to place three…

            • Please add auto-save!

              Please add auto-save! I work with classes of students, and they are forever forgetting to save and then losing their work! They are so used to using Google Drive that they don't think of it.

                Thank you for your message and I’m so sorry for the slow reply! We absolutely agree this is needed, and we are working toward this as quickly as we can. As I understand it, it’s a very different task to do this for music notation than for text as in Google Docs and other things, so it’s taking us a bit longer. But please stay tuned!

              • Braces/brackets for instrument groups

                The piano has a brace. How about for instrument groups too ie. vocals, brass, strings and woodwind. It would look so much more professionally produced for printing scores.

                • Printing Protections

                  Noteflight allows any user to print any other users score or individual parts without notification to the composer. This is allowed via terms of service, but is not secure because any one an print and play your music without any notification or permission. A second point to this being un useful is that when a composer does block the "export" function, which includes exporting a pdf or individual parts, any one can still print out the pdf, making this confusing to users. Notelfight should revise their terms of service to allow a composer the right to allow their scores to…

                  • Add actual jazz chord notation - not modified classical.

                    Slash Chords, use of the maj7th triangle and diminished * symbol. Also the invisible chords boxes should be overlays not opaque white boxes which obscures the staff in default positioning.

                    Overall, Noteflight is very weak for working with jazz charts and scores. It really needs improvement in this area.

                    • Add and fix ALOT of things.

                      I love NoteFlight, I'm on it when I'm not on anything else (which is often). I like making music. I don't like limits to my music. That is the current situation and it is for the following reasons.

                      There are some instruments that I would really love to use in NoteFlight (and lots of other people too), so it would be AWESOME if you could add the following instruments (please):

                      Bowed Strings: Fiddle

                      Woodwinds: Harmonica, Recorder, Samba Whistle and Slide Whistle

                      Brass: Baritone/Euphonium and Flugelhorn

                      Keyboards: Accordion, Clavinet and Polysynth

                      Percussion: Agogo Bells, Bodhran, Brake Drum, Claves, Crotales, Electronic Drum,…

                      • create a 5-line percussion staff that includes instruments like triangle, tambourine, and shakers/maracas.

                        I'm working on a song for my band class and I'd like them to hear the actual sounds of a triangle and tambourine rather than a splash cymbal and a closed hi-hat. These are standard instruments and need to be added to a dedicated percussion staff. We also need to be able to have the snare and the bass drum playing different rhythms at the same time on the staff. This is how percussion parts are written.

                        • Fix items in jazz font

                          Jazz Font C minor chord symbol is problematic-- the minor dash gets swallowed up by the C letter, making it look like a G. You can work around by spelling Cmin7, but that is clunkier and takes up more space.

                            • 8-Bit sounds and Accordion

                              Noteflight is great. I won't deny that. They're really good at what they do. But if I could choose a couple new instruments, I would highly recommend these

                              8-bit sounds: I just think it would be awesome to mess around with retro sounds. You could also add 16-bit, 32-bit, ect. Plus, Noteflight's instruments are computer generated, so it probably wouldn't be that hard. (But I hardly know anything about coding, so...)

                              The accordion: It would probably be extremely hard to make, but I really like the accordion and it would be awesome.

                                    Hello, we do have the ‘Collections’ feature for organizing scores, on the left in your account under ‘Home’. We are in the process of improving and expanding this. Does that help?

                                  • allow me to hear/hold all notes at a given position in the score

                                    I would like an option to hear what all the voices are playing when I am editing the pitch of a note, so that I can hear what the note sounds like in the context of the other voices.

                                    • allow one to increase all note/rest lengths by some proportionate amount (adjusting for measures).

                                      There should be a function to increase or decrease the lengths of all notes/rests in a piece, or for some selected section, by a scaled amount. For example, in a section consisting of only sixteenth/quarter notes and rests, "2X" would double all these to eighth/half notes/rests. There should also be an adjustment for any necessary increase in measures.

                                      • Allow Stick Notation

                                        I'm a teacher of K-5, and I often use stick notation prior to notation on the staff. Several of my presentations involve rhythm via stick notation, then I add solfege syllables under the stick notation, then move this complete package onto the staff. I need to be able to display rhythmic values without the staff. Is this possible?
