||Hello Noteflight Member,
It's been a wild and wonderful year of serving musicians and music
lovers all over the world. Since our launch in late 2008, over
20,000 people have signed up for Noteflight. Over 36,000 musical
scores have been created online, hundreds more are saved every day,
and I'm delighted by all the innovative ways that our members use
We appreciate your support very much, and this newsletter is our way
of reaching out to you. This month, we'd like to invite you to...
|Enter our summer composition contest. To celebrate our first year of creating and sharing music notation
online, we're going to have some fun: we're inviting everyone to participate in
Starshine Composition Contest! The grand prize will be a $500 gift certificate from Sweetwater Sound for the best variation on a familiar theme. Find out how to enter.
|Help us out by taking our survey. We want to get to know you better: we need to understand who our members are and find out more about them, so we know what to build and who to build it for.
||You can help us directly by giving us a few minutes of your time
and taking our survey. It's brief, it's confidential,
and participants have a chance to win one of our rather awesome
Noteflight T-shirts! And one thing is for sure: taking this survey
will win you our undying gratitude. So, we implore you: take our survey.
That's all for now! Explore and enjoy the world of music, and may peace be with you.
|Try out some new features. As our size has grown, so has our
feature set. Earlier in the year we added MusicXML support, MIDI and WAV export, drag-and-drop editing, dynamics and part transposition, to name just a few, and many more are on the way.
One feature that we're working on right now is MIDI import, since this would open up a large universe of existing music files that could be brought directly into Noteflight. MIDI is a file format that was not designed to fully express music notation, so importing MIDI as notation presents many challenges. Depending on the program that was used to create the original MIDI file, it might be very straightforward to convert the file into notation or it might be very hard. We're looking at solutions that would enable us to work with as many MIDI files as possible right away, and no doubt this will be a feature we continue to improve over time.
Other features in the works include score comments, favorite scores, slurs, hairpin dynamics, playback of repeats... not to mention a bunch of exciting stuff that's a little too cool to talk about yet!
Talk to us. Please tell us about how you're using Noteflight to collaborate and
share music with others, so we can let everyone know about your ideas
and experiences in future newsletters. Send us an email
