Subject: midi file replaced
How about a check mark (active by default) that decides whether an existing MIDI file should be overwritten? I would like to avoid asking too many questions, but it also makes sense to give the user some control.

Something like:

[X] generate new MIDI file if Lilypond code is added or edited

This would appear only if a MIDI file already exists. If the check mark is removed, the MIDI file would be left alone.

When a Lilypond code is added to an existing entry (or the current one is changed), a new midi file is automatically made (with the standard piano sound), even if the entry already contained a midi file. Shouldn't the program ask for a confirmation before replacing the (probably higher quality) original midi?

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.
