Subject: PDF sheet music downloads
I just added the possibility to download sheet music for whole pieces in PDF format.
Example: search for "Haydn 76 g major" (e. g. using the contour search form, or by just entering " 76 g major" in your browser's address field), and you should find a score of the first movement of that string quartet with a link to a 5-page PDF file with the entire first movement in it.

This is not so interesting for musical themes, but might well be nice for whole pieces.

Since there is now also the possibility of entering entire Lilypond files (which one can, for example, find on, this new PDF feature might make Musipedia useful not only for identifying music, but also for printing and then playing it.

I should mention that I was not able to directly copy this string quartet as a single Lilypond source file from; instead, I had to create one single file out of several .ly files from Mutopia by simply replacing "include" statements with the files they were trying to include. Also, I had to upgrade the source code using convert-ly. But that's all it took.

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.
