  1. Ornaments such as mordents should play back

    Noteflight has to include ornaments such as trills, mordants, tremelo, turns before and after the note, grace notes, appogiaturas, and repeat signs that work when you put them in your musical composition. Please, then I and everyone could create beautiful works of MUSIC! PLEASE!

    Grace notes, trills, and repeats already do work in Noteflight’s playback, so we will re-name this to include only ornaments such as mordents, which still are not reflected in playback (though they are there for live performers to read!)

  2. Reallocation of Drum Staff parts

    Trap Kits are so personal, the staffs should be just as flexible as the kit itself. There are some universals, but allowing the user to reassign a line to a specifc part of the instrument would really be awesome!

  4. Noteflight's guitars are very limited compared to actual guitars

    There are many things missing under Noteflight's guitar to-do list but one thing I find slightly annoying is that distorted guitars don't sound very distorted; and it makes it harder to write music in a more metal style or harder rock. On top of that, Several effects are missing such as Pick scraping, and bend-releases, and those can be very vital in filling the emptier part of songs.

    Another thing is that there should be a picked bass option to give a more rock feel to some of the pieces rather than the basic electric bass and the Rock-electric bass…

  5. Disable note playback while editing

    Besides the annoyingness and the uselessness (what composer in the world would not know how the notes he want will sound like?), it tentatively introduces a small yet bothering lag into the workflow.

  6. Noteflight Festival!!!!! :D

    Ok this isn't my idea but I definitely think it would be cool if there was a festival on noteflight! It should be on a voted topic (or the admin could pick it) every week or so and last for like a month. There could also be a tab on the browser page for it for the most favorites and newest.I think it would be cool because it could get newcomers noticed and it would be fun :D

  7. Improve the collection/ folders feature

    Hello! I am IT Specialist at IBM Brazil. And I enjoyed the Noteflight to edit my scores. I would like to help with some continuous feedback that can be very useful in productivity scores. In this feedback I want to talk about collections feature. It would be helpful if you could hold the CTRL key to select more than one item alternately. Today you can use the SHIFT key to sequentially select items. Another very useful feature would be the ability to drag and drop the item on the collection. Or also, click the right mouse button and select the…

  8. Staff Size Control - Make Smaller Staff Option

    It would be usefule to have the ability to change the staff size independent of other staves. For example, to display a solo part in a smaller size while keeping the piano accompaniment large.

  9. More Essential Clefs

    Hello!

    Over the past few months, I have really wanted to have a bigger selection of clefs. My suggestion would be, if you double click on any clef, it would bring you to a small screen (like the key signature one) that would have the following clefs:

    - Treble Clef
    - 8va Treble Clef
    - 15ma Treble Clef
    - Tenor Voice Clef
    - Bass Clef
    - Octave Bass Clef
    - 15ma Bass Clef
    - Octave (up) Bass Clef
    - Alto Clef
    - Tenor Clef
    - Soprano Clef
    - Mezzo-Soprano Clef
    - French Clef
    - Baritone Clef
    - Subbass Clef
    -…

  10. allow one to increase all note/rest lengths by some proportionate amount (adjusting for measures).

    There should be a function to increase or decrease the lengths of all notes/rests in a piece, or for some selected section, by a scaled amount. For example, in a section consisting of only sixteenth/quarter notes and rests, "2X" would double all these to eighth/half notes/rests. There should also be an adjustment for any necessary increase in measures.

  11. A tool to see if someone copied and pasted from your score

    I don't know about others, but this happens to me ALL the time. People copy and paste from my scores and I find replicas of my own score everywhere! I don't know if this could be possible, but it would be AWESOME if there was a tool that showed if a Noteflight user copied from your score. It would be so helpful and prevent copying others' works, especially when people present it as their own. Thanks and I hope you listen!

  12. have a spotlight

    A spotlight is something on a lot of music notation websites which allows you to put up a number of your works at the top of your Noteflight page. It helps you get more views on the scores you post on it. I am having trouble with getting feedback on Noteflight, because I would post something and it would get a number of views and favorites, and then it would just stop and fall dead. It would get almost no views and maybe get a favorite after a month. I think a spotlight would help me get more feedback on…

  13. Easier switching between playback mode and note entry

    The old Notelfight allowed me to enter in notes, and then easily listen by hovering over the play button, pressing "p", or even selecting a track and just listening to it alone. Now, hovering doesn't make the play button appear (I have to actually click on the gray part above the staff, then hover), and when I do finally enter playback mode, I can't just hit the space bar to pause it and immediately edit notes. I have to either click "Edit", or press the escape button, but it takes just long enough to be annoying, and the fact that…

    We have made some speed improvements in the switchover between modes. That doesn’t address everything you said, and we are thinking about that too, but do you find that it’s a bit better since when you posted this?

  14. Triangle sigh used for major seventh chord

  16. add longer note values

    So... I'm a dude who enjoys choral composing and writes in 4/2 sort of often, but there is currently no breve option so I have no choice but to tie two whole notes together; it looks sort of unaesthetic.

  17. Allow you to hide tuplet barring.

    It would be nice if you have a long section of triplets (or quintuplets or whatever) to be able to hide all the bars of "|----3----|" after the first group.

  18. Improve score Demo options

    I want to transpose a techno piece on my non-crescendo account. After I went through halfway, I want to save the notes on a free score in which I can use the same notes with the demo next time. However, the copyboard was broken/disabled for some reason. (It worked before) I don't know if these actions are considered 'cheating' through the cresendo subscription, but I hope that you would fix this issue/add it one more time.

  19. Add and fix ALOT of things.

    I love NoteFlight, I'm on it when I'm not on anything else (which is often). I like making music. I don't like limits to my music. That is the current situation and it is for the following reasons.

    There are some instruments that I would really love to use in NoteFlight (and lots of other people too), so it would be AWESOME if you could add the following instruments (please):

    Bowed Strings: Fiddle

    Woodwinds: Harmonica, Recorder, Samba Whistle and Slide Whistle

    Brass: Baritone/Euphonium and Flugelhorn

    Keyboards: Accordion, Clavinet and Polysynth

    Percussion: Agogo Bells, Bodhran, Brake Drum, Claves, Crotales, Electronic Drum,…

  20. Include instrument ranges

    This would not be difficult, though it would be time consuming considering the number of instruments. It would be nice if the instrument ranges could be included in the programming so you don't have to worry about accidentally going out of range. Now this would be partially for people who work with lots of instruments and it's difficult to memorize every single range of every single instrument, partially for people who might accidentally go one or two below the range accidentally (and don't find out until it's difficult to change), and partially because sometimes I try to deselect and instead…
