Subject: New feature: Lilypond source code generator for beginners

those who would like to add MIDI and sheet music to a Musipedia entry but don't know Lilypond can now use a point-and-click pop-up editor. The user just clicks on keys on a keyboard (similar to the melody editor for the melody forum). The editor then writes simple Lilypond source code. This code can be copied into the Lilypond source code field, perhaps edited a bit, and Musipedia will generate sheet music and a MIDI file.

If you would like to try this, you can go here:

Of course, the plan is to also use this editor as the new melody editor for the forum, but that is not done yet.

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.
