  2. Add French Horns to the Free version of Noteflight

    It is difficult to compose any music for the horn selection without French Horns, and still make it sound good. I understand that there must be aspects in the Premium version that the free version doesn't have, so that people feel the need to buy it, but French Horns are so essential in my composing, it's hard to write without them. Please Help! Thank you :)

  4. Make it possible to write for Euphonium/Baritone

    Well, basically I write a lot of pieces for marching and symphonic/wind ensembles. Every time I go to write the Euphonium part, I have to use Trombone (for Bass Clef Euph.) or Trumpet an octave down (for Treble). Noteflight, could you sample some Euphoniums to add to the list of instrumentation?

  5. multiple measure repeat

    In February, the "Repeat Measure" symbol was implemented (see: http://feedback.noteflight.com/forums/4962-tell-us-your-thoughts/suggestions/2765497-include-the-repeat-measure-symbol-a-forward-slash ).
    That's great! However, many users on that thread (myself included) have requested a "multiple measure" repeat symbol -- which repeats a two bar phrase.
    The symbol used is the same percent sign looking thingy, *//*, but there is a "2" above it and it straddles the barline.
    Such functionality would be **greatly** appreciated, as it's really important for jazz charts, etc.

  6. Stop the hi-hat audio when a hi-hat is "closed"

    As a drummer, I often find myself frustrated with the fact that when I play an open hi-hat note, and want a sort of "tee-op" sound by closing the hi-hat soon afterwards (usually a 16th or 8th note later), the audio does not cut off and I have to listen to it ring throughout the beat until the actual audio sample ends. My suggestion would just be to cut it off when a "hi-hat with foot" or a closed hi-hat (+) is notated, if not use an actual audio sample for the cut-off. I made a quick score that shows…

  7. Allow Users to Interact More

    This is an amazing website that I appreciate dearly for allowing me the chance to express myself musically with such ease and efficiency; however, I find it frustrating that I cannot connect with other composers for collaboration and possible growth by interaction in our shared medium. Grant users the option to connect with their peers.

  8. Have the option to merge instead of overwrite on paste.

    After transcribing a piece of music, I often wish Noteflight would allow me to select some bars on a staff and merge the notes with those of another selection on a separate staff instead of overwriting them. This would be invaluable for creating single - instrument arrangements of a piece of music. A way I think this could be implemented is with a separate paste operation available along with the default paste in the edit menu.

  10. Improve Marching Percussion

    (Not exactly a new idea) I am simply adding my support to the idea of incorporating marching percussion into the program's features. Noteflight would gain a TON of new users if this were available. Noteflight is a great program, but honestly I have no use for it until further drum notations such as flams, buzz rolls, and the like are added (these are absolutely neccessary for drum notation).

  12. 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.

  13. add a simile option in the measure line choices, for us that write quick "studio" style charts

    Difficult to write the very common simile sign to repeat X number of bars in a phrase for instance, to keep studio charts short and simple. This is VERY common in studio charts and would be an excellent way to make this program work for live and studio situations where people don't know the music.

  14. have playback for harmonics

    Maybe I'm not aware of the feature -- but I'd like to notate harmonics on string instruments and have the (correct) pitches played. For example: I'd like to use a diamond note head on middle C on a violin and have g'' play back. Even if there's no change in timbre it'd be great to be able to notate harmonics, especially artificial harmonics.

    In the meantime (if this idea would be considered), is there an existing work-around? As in, is there any way can I have the playback play notes that do not match the notes written (e.g., solid note…

    There is no way to have certain notes play back different sounds. There is a complicated, imperfect workaround though… you could add a separate staff with just the alternate notes, and then un-check that staff in the instruments list to hide it. Then take the notes in the main part you don’t want to hear, and make them pppp, and hide the dynamic. Again, far from perfect….

  15. add 5x7 or 5½x7 to the page size menu for flip folder pep and marching band

    PLEASE add this size for those of us that arrange for marching/pep band.

    currently this requires working in letter landscape then doing tricks with adobe .pdf

    it would be best if it could print in the center of the paper to ensure maximal use of the sheet [different printers have different margins] with a box drawn around the chart to size for easy cut-out

    nice-to-have would be 2 up on a page to save paper

  17. Add Shape Notes

    Shaped noteheads (in addition to the ones already available) for Solfege representation. Use the seven-shape system (which would also support four shape/sacred harp). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shape_note

  18. create a 5-line percussion staff that includes instruments like triangle, tambourine, and shakers/maracas.

    I'm working on a song for my band class and I'd like them to hear the actual sounds of a triangle and tambourine rather than a splash cymbal and a closed hi-hat. These are standard instruments and need to be added to a dedicated percussion staff. We also need to be able to have the snare and the bass drum playing different rhythms at the same time on the staff. This is how percussion parts are written.

  19. Make dotted slurs/ties

    Basically, since you sometimes need to slur/tie across the beginning of repeats, but you don't always need to slur/tie at the end of the repeat section back to the first note, we need dotted slurs/ties so that you can show you don't do them the second time. If that makes any sense. I need them for a piece I'm doing, and Noteflight doesn't have them yet.
