  1. Two notes on same beat with touch

    So I have noticed that if you click above or below a note you can put a second one on the same beat. Touch controls don't seem to be able to do this. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just not possible with touch?

      Hello, you can do this as follows: touch the first note and hold your finger down, then touch the other notes you need, and they will all be added onto the same stem as a chord.

    • How do I make 2 voices different durations?

      When I have a 2 note chord and try to make the top one last longer than the bottom one, it makes both of them longer and I only want the top note longer.

        Hello, and glad to help!

        You can do this by creating a second voice in the same staff: to create a new voice above the current one, type U for upper. Or L for lower. That gives you a new whole/bar rest, and then you can add the new rhythms.

      • Hi. I am just wondering how to change the tempo of the entire song to be the same.

        • labeling percussion instrument

          I entered a three-lined percussion staff. I like to label each line as tap-clap-snap in the beginning. How do I do that?

              You can do this as follows:
              - click the first measure you want selected
              - scroll to see the last measure you want selected
              - hold shift and click that measure

              that selects the range in between.

                  There is a keyboard icon, on the upper right, to hide and show the piano keyboard. To create text, use the buttons to start the text item in the text palette (such as ‘Performance’ text or Chord text. Then the on-screen computer keyboard will pop up.

                • Combine Two Parts to One Staff

                  I'm trying to write a piece for my high school band, and i'd like to be able to print separate parts but show them on the same staff in the score, or if you're writing harmonies and decide you'd rather have them on the same staff have an option to combine them on to one staff

                        Hello! Noteflight automatically handles different key signatures for transposing instruments. The important thing is to have each staff designated as the instrument you want, with the correct transposition in the Instruments panel. To make sure, click the “Instruments” button in the top panel: that opens a dialog box showing the instruments you have. Click the instrument’s name to see its “octave” and “key” which determine its transposition. This is not the key of the piece – just the key of the instrument’s transposition.

                        The “Concert Pitch” button determines how each instrument appears in your score and parts. If all instruments are correctly designated, when you uncheck the Concert pitch button, the transposing instruments, such as B-flat clarinet, will automatically appear transposed. They will also print out, correctly transposed, when you “print individual parts.”

                        Read these sections of our User’s Guide:
                        https://www.noteflight.com/guide#transposeParts
                        https://www.noteflight.com/guide/new#action-concertPitch

                        We also recommend this article about transposing in…

                      • Let notes of two different duration be played in the same measure.

                        I am trying to compose a piece that has a piano part where a whole note E is played at the same time as a dotted half note C followed by a quarter note F. When I try to input this in the music, I am only allowed to put either two dotted half notes or two whole notes on beat one of that measure. If multiple notes are being played in a measure, there should be an option where they can be of different durations.

                        • 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

                          • Allow for formatting to be included when copying and pasting sections.

                            My problem: The copy and paste options in the score editor tend to ignore the formatting of what is being, copied and pasted.

                            Some examples: Beaming of subdivided notes, note colors from the color menu, etc.

                            My solution: Allow for formatting to be copied with the notes. (I believe that Microsoft word/excel/etc has an option like this that would be worth emulating).

                                    • Make The notes Actually Slur

                                      When I try to Slur notes, it always end up playing both notes. I have tried switching up the instruments but same glitch occurs. Plus I've tried not putting slurs, i.e. dots on notes but there is no to word some of the notes such as quarter notes slurred to 16th

                                      • add pizzicato, or at least make it more obvious as to where it is.

                                        I could not for the life of me find pizzicato. It's just plucking for the "bowed instruments" and essential to the song I'm writing. I looked it up on help and in every reasonable menu, and it wasn't there. The closest thing I could find was "plucked instruments" (which did not include my orchestra instruments). Please fix this soon! I've only ever had this one cool song idea and I really want to try it out before I forget my idea. Thanks!

                                        • I already pay 50.00 a year. Why isn't all of the music on this sight included in this price. It used to be included. I might quit you.

                                          All music on this sight used to be included in the 50.00 per year price. Now sheet music directs wants additional money. This sucks. Teachers already buy tons of materials with their own money, now you want more. It seems like the best songs cost an additional fee. I may not renew next year because of this. You change things. That disappoints me greatly.
