Subject: re: Playing someone else's notes on the front page piano?
Thanks! : )

I have a thread on it in a forum I frequent:

Right after I posted I realized I couldn't paste the notes back in to play.

I know it's probably not supposed to be designed that way (or stay that way obviously), but it seems like such a trivially easy feature to (re) add.

I think it would be really fun to make it easy to share. : )

Thanks again...

Very nice idea! If I remember correctly, this was already possible in an earlier version. I'll contact Joshua Koo, the author of the Flash applet, about it.

Hello. : )

First post.

I'm not musically inclined really, but I like to play some random songs on the piano on the front page.

I have a question; if someone else plays a song, is it possible to paste their notes into that piano and have it play?

If not, why not? : )

I had copied my notes after making a "song" and wanted to play it for someone else, but they told me paste was not allowed in the notes box.

: )

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.
