Subject: re: Parsons code derived from midi file?
I just re-introduced this possibility.
Usually, the automatic detection is probably what one wants. But now one can also, at the very bottom of the form, edit the Parsons Code. To make such manual changes stick, one has to check the checkmark ("override the automatic detection") - otherwise, the Parsons Code is still automatically detected.

I hope I did not introduce new bugs - if I did, please let me know.

Subject: Parsons code derived from midi file?
I've just tried using Musipedia after a long break and it seems to have changed. A piece of music I put in your database a couple of years ago was originally searchable using Parsons code for the melody. However, it now seems that the required Parsons code for a successful search is based on the midi file I uploaded. As that file contains a complete arrangement rather than just the melody, the Parsons code includes notes from the accompaniment.

Is it possible to manually edit the Parsons code (without deleting or replacing the midi file?

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.
