        Hello, we are sorry you didn’t receive it! Please check your spam/junk folder. If that doesn’t work: if you are student your school’s email server may block certain types of emails. Ask your IT or admin if that might be the case here.

        If still no luck, please write to support@noteflight.com and include the email address you used to sign up.

      • 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

            We are so sorry to hear this is happening! We have found that Chrome browser works the best – if you are using another browser, could you try the latest version of Chrome?

            If that doesn’t help, please write to support@noteflight.com and let us know the browsers you have tried, and the link to a score where this is happening.

            Thank you!

            • I wish Noteflight would fix the midi importation bug with the rhythm.

              I've tried importing MIDI files from other sources recently, and Noteflight never seems to notate correct rhythm anymore. I've tried new files, and old files that used to import just fine, but nothing imports properly even though it used to just fine.

                Thank you for this info! Could you please write to support@noteflight.com and send several examples, including if possible:

                1, new and old scores, incorrect and correct respectively
                2. the MIDI files you imported to create those scores, as attachments
                3. images showing the way the rhythms looked in the program that produced the MIDI files
                4. the name of the program you used to create the MIDI files.

                thank you!

              • Choose what to play for the preview of a score

                In the latest update, I noticed that you could play the score with a mini play/stop button to the left of the score. And when you click on it, it starts playing the score from the beginning, and will play through until the end unless it is stopped. However, I was wondering if we could maybe highlight what measures were to be played in the preview so that we could choose what to be played rather than going through the whole piece from the beginning.

                    • Better Security and Saving System

                      I was working for seven hours on a song and I saved it. Later on, I come back and there's nothing even though I did save it. If I didn't save it, it would have asked me if I wanted to keep my changes but it didn't. I'm not sure what happened, but I think either someone hacked into my account or the saving system is faulty. It shows I'm saving, doesn't question me closing out the window without saving and yet still doesn't show diddly squat. So if the former happened, I would like to propose a better security…

                        • Extreme dynamics

                          Have more extreme dynamics, for example in Rachmaninov's prelude in C# minor it has dynamics such as "sffff," even if it does't play that volume and stays "fff" at least make it change the font to dynamics font.

                          • Lock Pitches/Rhythms from being Edited

                            As a teacher, I use Noteflight to create activity templates all the time. It would be great for me to be able to lock pitches, rhythms, voices, staves, etc. so that students could not edit them - accidentally or intentionally. For example, consider a Figured Bass exercise. Imagine being able to lock the bass voice entirely so that students could not alter the pitches.

                              • 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.

                                  It would be nice to have different types of ritarndando. I only want the tempo to get a little slower, but the effect I get by default is too slow.

                                    The comments already have a variety of editing tools like hyperlinks and formatting, but I think it would be very beneficial to perhaps make an option to create clickable text that will go to a specific measure in the current score and highlight it. For example, I might comment on someone's score "I really loved that transition at m.33!", and anyone reading that comment would be able to click "m.33" and the score would scroll to that measure and highlight it. This could have a variety of benefits. For example, a teacher could specify more easily for a student where…

                                      I know that you guys at noteflight have to make money to keep this great website up and running. I think it would be very beneficial for everyone if there was an easy way for people to leave voluntary tips. Maybe as an incentive when a fundraising goal was reached certain premium features would become available to everyone. The money raised could then be used to improve Noteflight. I hope this makes sense and thanks for listening. Not everyone, like me a kid, can afford premium.

                                      • 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.

                                        • The score dashboard is very inaccurate

                                          Could this be fixed? It is a very minor issue, but the numbers on my Score Dashboard do not match up with those of my homepage; I am sure I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.
                                          Thanks!

                                            Hello, We are eager to make sure this is working! Could you explain a little further what you are seeing? Are you saying that in your Home screen, if you count up all the favorites and comments manually, those numbers do not match the numbers in the Dashboard? Or did I misunderstand? Please feel free to write to support@noteflight.com with examples. Thanks!
