    • 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 dynamic support within a note

          As of now, Noteflight playback doesn't allow for crescendo/decrescendo on a single tone or throughout a trill. It would be great to have that feature.

          • 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…

                • Fix These Problems URGENTLY

                  I believe that everyone (including myself) has been waiting far too long for some of these problems to be resolved and I am becoming quite dissatisfied with some features of Noteflight. I'll just get straight to the points and attempt to explain my best.

                  Crescendos and decrescendos do not carry throughout the notes, they only change when a new note plays. So if I place a decrescendo on a a whole note so that it dissipates, it will play the same volume that it began with until that note ends/moves on to the next note, which ruins the music quite…

                  • new sound effect

                    please take into consideration an option in which we can turn off the sound effect they have recently put, the echo.

                    the site should give us the option of being able to choose whether I would like to have the sound of the "basic violin" or the new violin.

                    thank you

                        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!

                          This could be useful when the same two or four measures are repeated at a certain point in a song.

                          • Allow filtering options for specifically notes, rests, or both, rather filtering for both all the time.

                            My problem: When I filter a section with the 'notes' filter in the edit menu, it filters both the notes and the rests.

                            My solution: I recommend an option that allows filtering of only notes, rests, or both. This way the traditional filter option continues to exist while two new options can be tested and utilized.

                            i.e. I have music that needs certain rests to be invisible. Introducing a rests-only filter would be a great way to facilitate that.

                            I also believe that adding a specific notes-only filter could help facilitate editing of notes in a section as well.

                            • Go back to the standard Basic Trumpet sound.

                              The new trumpet sound is completely inaccurate and extremely technical sounding. Noteflight should go back to the basic trumpet which had a more realistic and crisper sounding instrument.

                                - Add a "rallentando" option and allow the user to choose with a slide bar the quantity of ritardando or rallentando.
                                - Allow users to create more than only two voices for each instrument, needed, for example, in some orchestral passages.
                                - Improve the crescendo audio playback, wich doesn't work with long notes. For example, making possible to hear a crescendo from piano to forte in one semibreve.

                                  • add more countries such as Australia (my country to the marketplace)

                                    this would help me produce more scores and it would help my school as well as they are prohibited from using the market place. Please make Australia be on the next marketplace update it would help loads of my friends, my school and other people using noteflight in Australia as well.

                                    thanks for reading this!!!

                                      • make it easier to write music.

                                        I signed up and sat down to do some composing and quickly figured out that the UX of this program is laughable. I found myself having to switch back and forth between edit and play modes, and wondering why it took way too long to simply place a note. Two clicks to add an accidental? Trying to set a note value changed the previous note. And trying to reseat a note when I'd accidentally changed it was a nightmare. Spend less on marketing and more on making sure your product is industry standard before trying to charge for it.

                                          Hi James, thank you for reaching out – we always appreciate this kind of feedback! We are sorry that it has been frustrating, and I want to share a few thoughts that may help.

                                          Switching between play and edit mode is different than in Noteflight than in some other notation programs – I was a longtime Sibelius user myself, and this took a little getting used to in Noteflight, but I started to really appreciate it because it helped clarify my process in terms of when I was editing versus listening.

                                          The slow note entry should not be happening. This depends on which browser you’re using, and we’ve found that people using the latest version of Chrome don’t have trouble with this. Could you try that and let me know how it goes?

                                          For accidentals and similar things, I highly recommend our keyboard shortcuts – here is a list: https://www.noteflight.com/guide#shortcuts

                                        • Re add the standard basic drums.

                                          The basic drums offered a punchy sound that was incredibly useful with the type of music that I wanted to make. I get that making the premium drums the new basic was a good idea, but I miss the OG basic drum sound.
