  1. Consider a Marching Bass Drum Voicing change.

    When you read published marching bass drum music, any note written on the center line of the staff, is to be played unison by all basses. When you write that note in notefilght it doesn't play anything. Would you guys consider changing that so that it will play all bass drums at once?

    • Pedal Notation

      With a Premium membership, I fell like it would be a great addition to add things like half pedal, softening pedal, and a few more.
      I know that I wasn't too specific, but I hope you get the idea.
      Thanks!

        • ¿puedo editar una partitura de alguien más? ¿cómo?

          Me gustó una partitura ajena, pero me gustaría añadir cosas extras.

            • Offer a non-prescription price option for Premium

              As a student, I have an unsteady income stream so prescription pricing doesn't really work for me. I love this product but I wish there were an option for a one time fee for premium (or even student pricing option) so as to fit my budget

              • 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.

                • Know How Many Staffs I'm Copying

                  The most annoying part of NoteFlight is that, when I'm copying multiple parts at once on multiple different staffs, I have to reselect them all before I paste. Sibelius & MuseScore simply know how many you copied and let you paste, or give you an error message if you copied too many and there's none left in the score. Would love this technology to make its way to Noteflight, so I don't have to reselect all the staffs every time.

                  • Allow Comments on Specific Measures

                    I love the ability to share arrangements through NoteFlight with my friends, but I don't really see the point if my friends can't comment on specific measures with feedback. I'm in an a cappella group with many arrangers, and we share drafts before bringing to the group. Would be great to collaborate on comments (like sticky notes) on certain measures, rather than me having to comment with the measure number on the right.

                    • support automatically fixing enharmonic spelling according to key signature

                      If you select a passage of already recorded/imported music and change the key signature, the accidental spellings (sharps/flats) stay as they are, whereas 90% of the time you'd want them to change to be appropriate for the new key signature. Also, how do I get more votes? I literally can't suggest any more ideas now...

                      • support smarter MIDI import

                        Currently it only allows splitting by track or channel, with no ability to split by pitch range, nor any ability to specify a key signature (which I tried to set after importing, but the damage with the accidentals was already done apparently).

                        • make strong accents SOUND LIKE strong accents

                          Maybe this is just my laptop, but when I mark a strong accent for a note (my substitute for a rimshot - I'm writing a drumline cadence) the note just sounds regular. When I mark a regular accent, the note sounds like an accent, and a strong accent should do the same.

                          • fix the tempo issues

                            When I change the tempo in a certain part of the song, the measure immediately after stays at the original tempo, so I have to change each measure. It is very annoying and time consuming. It would also be nice to be able to move the tempo marking over (horizontally), in a more convenient place. If there is a way to do this already, I am unaware, and I would like to know! Thanks

                              Tempo is designed to affect all selected measures. So what you are describing if you have a specific measure, or an object in that measure, selected. To fix it, select all the measures you want to be at a given tempo. To apply a tempo to the whole score, de-select everything, or click Control-A to select the whole score.

                              We currently don’t have plans to allow moving the tempo marking horizontally, but we will consider it.

                            • 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…

                              • Zoom entry instead of sliding bar

                                When working on full concert band pieces it is very difficult to get the zoom bar right where I need. And to be honest, 5% variance is a lot, 50% is too small and 55% is too big.

                                • 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.

                                  • ...start targeting the non-composers & non-musicians, the listeners.

                                    I write poetry, and when I was at poetry sites, I noticed that everyone there was a poet. It's like being a rock star on stage and your audience is nothing but rock stars.
                                    --all levels of music/composers, a feature for beginning composing (not everyone wants to learn from someone else),
                                    ...let's get society in here!

                                    • Allow mordents turns and other ornaments to playback please!

                                      Yes this idea was already requested in 2011 on the forum, and your response was that this was tricky because ornaments are subject to different interpretations by players. However, hear me out please, I feel like it would actually be quite easy to program the most common interpretations of these ornaments (and I have never actually heard anyone play them differently than these interpretations). As they are described in the images I will link below, each ornament has a group of subdivided rhythms and steps. All you would have to do to make this feature available is make it so…

                                      • automatically save your scores. :(

                                        I used Noteflight on another computer. Apparently it didn't save because it is not there-- instead, a blank one called "Untitled." I thought I had saved it, but even if I didn't, an automatic backup would be helpful. Many online programs do this.
