I wish Noteflight would...

Get more instrument sounds

How about more unpitched percussion, mallets, brass, and some strings?

    I would like to write for "Flute ensembles" therefore need bass, alto flutes etc.

  • Jonathan Rupprecht commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would also like to have
    - glass harmonica
    - Voices/ Choir (like on a keyboard)
    - mandolin
    - celesta
    and more percussion instruments

    vocals, chimes, wind chimes, auxiliary percussion, marching symbols, marching snare, marching basses, koto, piccolo trumpet, yea that pretty much covers it. (everything on crescendo -besides trumpet- is good, but we need new instruments, not just for us, but so basic users can have more instruments)

    I'll throw in Harpsichord as an instrument I'd like to see added (ie for baroque or chamber scores)
    (The current instruments are growing and helping!)

  • ZeroM95 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    bass trombone, contrabass trombone, and tubas, french horns, piccolo, and pitched percussion

  • Joseph Perry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'd like all marching, jazz, and concert instruments, like french horn and english horn, and contrabass sax, for non crescendo users

    I personally would like french horn and tuba instruments they are part of the bread and butter of my music.

    i personally don't see this as a huge priority -- music notation doesn't need midi at all to be effective, but it is helpful for proof-reading scores

    I would really like:

    full orchestra string sections
    several different organs
    more drums in a kit
    electric piano
    french horn
    clean electric guitars (rock and jazz)
    distorted electric guitar
    steel string acoustic (6 and 12 string)
    solo violin, viola, and cello, all with vibrato
    harp
    celesta

    adding a marimba sound would make this program the greatest community program EVER!!
    i could do so much with that.

  • Amala Musica commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Im thinkin that they could also try to improve the sound of the current instruments. For example, trombones seem to fwah their notes instead of tah-ing them. And saxes and clarinets seem to get a very nasally sound when they get to the higher notes. They could also try to add more features like glissandoes, mutes, and just taking out the mouth piece and playing into that.

    The standard concert percussion set, used in every orchestra and concert band all over the world is:

    - A well-tuned Concert Snare (as opposed to the flabby drumset snare used here)
    - Concert Bass Drum (Dampened for articulation, and open for impacts)
    - Concert Crash Cymbals (Various inflections, as used in orchestral pieces)
    - Concert rolled suspended cymbals
    - Triangle
    - Woodblock
    - Tambourine (various inflections, incl. taps, palm "pops", shakes, and thumb rolls)
    - Xylophone
    - Glockenspiel (1 played with acrylic mallets, 1 with brass mallets)
    - Timpani
