Subject: MIDI web search
I have changed some little things about the MIDI web search, most noteably:
- now not only the MIDI file itself, but also the referring page is retrieved
- additional occurrences of the same MIDI file on different web pages are shown as well
This involved building a new index from scratch. That's why there are currently less than 20,000 MIDI files in the index. I have a lot more files in the pipeline that are just waiting to be indexed.

But I indexed the most interesting files first (the Karaoke files, which tend to be carefully sequenced and also have lyrics embedded in them). So, although there are now fewer files in the index, there might be more interesting files in there than a few days ago when the number was about twice as high.

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.
