Notessimo
« on: April 18, 2009, 12:11:03 pm »
There is a great site, www.notessimo.net, which has a thing where you make the scores yourself, using the instruments you want.

It features:
Layers - you can organize the instruments
Forums - post your music!
Sections - you can creat the music for a section then create a new one and put them in order when the song is done, you can even use a section twice if you dont feel like copying it down again
Treble and Bass Clefs
Tutorials and "Tip of the Day"
and alot more...

Heres the song "Over the Rainbow" i created

Here's that piano song I mentioned to DJ awhile back.
It's not exactly how I wanted it... but it's still nice.

Dark Void - Nyaar (Electrokinesis) a.k.a. Me
It's my second addition to the Void series. (first one was Sky Void)

(EDIT: Tempo fixes. Sounds better now.)

{AP} your song is really good but you should add more instruments or a percussion or just more notes, because its a little too simple, but other than that its great!

Yeah, it was originally just a song I played on my piano on occasion. I never expected to actually put it online.
I'll work on it more later... I've been working on another song in Notessimo recently.

btw I like both of your songs, I think I'll mess around with this app for a bit to see if I can pull off something good from it (I am a bit skeptical, though, seeing the interface looks like Mario Paint Composer and songs sounds more like MIDI)

I've finished the core of another song.
I'll see if I can add something else to it later, maybe.

Lugia's Song

It seemed quite interesting, altough the controls are a bit annoying, slowing down song making a lot. but it got nice instruments. I am too used to putting notes on a long piano riff editor like in most music making softwares. If we can make long song segments I could maybe pull off a short techno song with this, though, just for fun.

i updated my song because i found some guitar chords to go behind it and the vocals were only at the beginning so i decided to remove them

here's the new link:
http://notessimo.net/?id=27856
still need to work on it some more but i am waaaay too tired its 10:20

also here's some tips for notesimmo:
*when you first come to the compose screen, under "open in new window" click the tab and click huge, it makes it a LOT easier to access all of the notes
*UTILIZE LAYERS! each insturment should have a layer of its own or at least each section (eg. percussion melody bass and chords and maybe vocals)
*Control your sections. if the intro and another part sound alike, but the second partis more complex, use the secondpart for the intro, i did this in over the rainbow in section 0, and you barely can notice it unless you lookat the top
*look at other people's music and the techniques THEY use you might learn a trick or two
Then again, maybe not...

I think I found a wrong note! :P
Check the 5th chord in measure 29 (8th measure of section 3), I think the top note should be a B4.

Sorry about being anal, but i'm sort of an audiophile (it's why I bought $110 Sennheiser HD-555 headphones). :P

oh forgot to comment on it, I liked it ^^ for some reasons it reminded me RPGs, is it from a game in particular?

As for part 1 and 2 and stuff I am confused about what it means

EDIT: I think I'll stick to MTV Music Generator (1) because I have been used to placing notes on a grid inside midi tracks, adding special effects to them and placing these midi tracks on a sequencer for like 7 years, not a music sheet interface like an orchestra or Mario Paint x.x. I always end up trying to put the note at 8 different places and trying the key + click combinations until it's at the right chord. Plus the controls are a bit unconventional x.x


(for the younger people here, by MTVMG I mean this: http://xlib.mtv-music-generator.com/m2kRAMusage.avi (requires Xvid codec to watch))

Bah. Butchered Saria's Song... I'm too tired to mess with making is sound better either.
Check it out or not, your call.

I think I'll do one from an anime next.

(BTW, Lugia's Song is from the Pokemon 2000 movie, Omnimaga. It's the only good music Pokemon has ever produced IMO.)

Ooh i see now. Personally, my favourite Pokémon song (that I didn't got bored of after listening to it more than 3 times) is this one:

&fmt=18 (1999)

But being a EDM/rave music fan, especially from the '90s, I might be a bit biased.

However, I prefer the french version, which I can unfortunately not find anywhere :(

Btw your song is great, I wish it had a bit of reverb and bass strings, though, but that's something Notesimmo can't do, I think x.x

Does this music maker allows you to import files into wav/mp3s? If not, maybe you could use audacity or another sound recorder and post the mp3 link from mediafire for those who can't run this music software (since it appears to be a bit CPU intensive and requires flash to be installed)

That's just me being lazy. Bass is possible.
The song is Saria's Song from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time btw.

It has a way to convert them to WAV and will apparently be able to do MIDI later.
If you try to convert it to MP# it gives the message: "Convert the song to a WAV then use a program like Audacity to convert it to a MP3."
Oddly enough, the converter is a separate program you have to download that requires Java, but it works at least.
