  1. Make Instruments Downloadable to be used Offline for Faster Loading Time

    Instruments may take time to load for people with lesser connections. Enable users to download sets of "GM" voices and allocate local instrument folder in the GUI. Provide two sets: Common Instruments and All Instruments.

    • Website's theme

      What about putting a musical theme for noteflight to greet our members a new arrivals?

      And also have a little box to check for optional hearing or not the theme.

      Here is the theme i suggest: http://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/3eb424c2a861513c5a0b1f93750f2ccfed185f23

        • Give the free users back more scores

          at first it was 100 now you lowered it to 25 really. I thought you said you would never downgrade the free version.

          • to review Noteflight Crescendo

            Noteflight users submitted ideas so that they could use the ideas for free. Now, Cresendo has basically "taken away" the ideas and used them for Noteflight's profit. I like the idea of new instruments, etc., but only if they were for free. I thought Noteflight's purpose was to help everyone receive free music composing online software. I am very disappointed. Please review your decision. I really don't want to have to pay for such a great program like Noteflight

              I want to be very clear that no one will have to pay for Noteflight. We are not taking away the free version, and we will be continuing to add functionality to both the free and paid version.

              Unfortunately we do need to make a profit in order for a free version to exist at all. Noteflight costs money to operate and to keep improving, and we can’t do it alone!

            • Drumset Crash Cymbal for Free Users

              I would just like a drumset crash cymbal, it's the only essential piece of the drumset missing from the free user version of noteflight and if I had the money, I'd buy crescendo. It doesn't even have to be the crash from crescendo, I don't think it would be that hard to get a crash sample from somewhere.

                Incorporate IP bans on the forums (or just in general)

                That way those who have been banned can't return by merely creating an alternate account. It has caused a lot of disturbances on the forums.

                  We are continuing to look for other ways to combat spam. It is already much reduced!

                  [old comment from Joe Berkovitz:] This isn’t nearly as useful as you would think since smartphones have variable IPs and much of the abuse has occurred from smartphones.

                  Please feel free write to me (Joe) directly if you would like to discuss this further.

                    Hi, as you can imagine it is much more than several days work to add so many instruments to Noteflight. What would work for you instead is to use existing instruments, but change the clefs, the part names and the transposition keys as needed. All of these are customizable in Noteflight.

                  • more instruments for non crescendo users

                    non crescendo users should be able to have typical orchestral instruments, and at least one type of guitar tab

                    • Make a way to remove triplets!!!

                      I created a triplet in a score, and could not figure out how to remove the triplet after realizing I had made a mistake. I was forced to use undo, and when I discovered that the undo history did not go back far enough, I had to exit the score and go to the last save which, thankfully did not include the dreaded triplet. Maybe a "Remove Tuplet" button in the Score pannel?

                      • work with more than one time signature at the same time

                        I would like to write polirhythms for example the right hand 3/4 and the left hand 2/4. At the moment it is not possible.

                        • Allow arbitrary tuplet ratios

                          Let tuplets have any crazy ratio I feel like using in my compositions - why can't I use that 13:5 tuplet that just makes me want to get down on the dance floor and shake it?

                            I would like to make a piece with a mixed time signature, but I have to physically change it for every bar. Noteflight should be able to support mixed time signatures and it should be available in the next update.

                              Could you please write to support to describe exactly what you need? Do you need one that looks like

                              7+6
                              8

                              ?

                              Currently, as a workaround you can create a bar of 7/8, then of 6/8, then select both by clicking the grey bar above, and use the R key to repeat that pattern many times instantly so you don’t have to create each time sig individually.

                            • remove or increase the score limit for free noteflight users

                              I understand that noteflight needs to make a profit, but it would be better to do so in a way that does not conflict with creativity. After filling up the 10 scores, i am discouraged from using noteflight. A better strategy would be to allow me to explore the capacities of the website and convince me to purchase crescendo based on other features.

                                I have just created a new account and they only let me use 10 scores. it should be at least 15 like all the other old people (whose score limit is around the 30-ish).If you are looking for ways to make money, i suggest advertising instead making people pay 50$/yr.

                                  Recently I wrote a little bass solo with slap in it, but it sounds kinda dull without the actual slap sounds. What I suggest is adding "Slap Bass" as a new instrument.

                                    • Make forum posts go from top to bottom

                                      Usually people are going to want to see the first post first. It's really annoying having scroll down to the bottom of the page with each new thread.

                                      It also helps the thread retain it's shape. If you want to go back to a certain post you know vaguely where the post is on the page.

                                      The way it is now, every time there's a new post the page get's rearranged.

                                      I think it just makes the op more central to the thread.
