Subject: Why does musipedia NEVER work for me?

Musipedia *never* works at all for me!

Here is a very typical example. The midi file of a familiar tune is attached, the rhythms are slightly off because I typed it into a flash keyboard, and the pitches are relative as I do not have perfect pitch. Here also is the Musipedia output when I typed it into a flash piano

g2-2294 f2s-1750 g2-657 f2s-900 b1-4000 e2-1974 d2-1391 e2-397 d2-884 g1

You see that the first two notes are a g and an f sharp etcetera.

The midi file of the same tune is attached.

Now, Musipedia recommends that this matches 'Molly's Graduation' which starts with a repetition of four occurrences of the note C, and in *no way* resembles the tune which I typed in!!!

This is a familiar theme, I have made no errors in typing it, but the strange thing is, why does Musipedia match it to a tune which has a note repeated four times at the beginning? This starts with a descending semitone!!

What on earth is wrong here?

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
