Muro Box

We are happy to announce our collaboration with the creators of Muro Box - the world's first app-controlled music box. It is a small, but very ambitious startup from Taiwan, where they had great success with their crowdfunding campaign. They have successfully built a prototype of the music box and their team is currently working really hard on making final adjustments to the product, in order to ship the first batch to their early bird supporters. In the mean time we've played around with the alpha version of their smartphone app and enabled melody export from our website into it.

Oh, and there are some rumours that Muro Box team is about to launch another crowdfunding campaign, this time on Indiegogo, so make sure to sign up for their newsletter to get updates directly from them. Cheers!

Similar melodies, new scales and melody requests

Some of you might have noticed that recently we introduced similar melodies detection. You can browse through similar melodies on the melody page and there is also a small counter in the melody player widget. The algorithm is comparing melody note sequences and does not care about titles, which among other things made this joke less funny.

Many people have complained that the actual scale of 30 note music box is shifted a few notes comparing to the scale on the paper strips provided with it. We've decided to fix this with an extra scale in our editor. It is called Grand Illusions 30 (F scale) or 30F. We've also added a custom 20 note scale for Wintergatan music box.

Please make sure to visit our melody request page. It has undergone significant changes.

MUSIC BOX SUGGESTIONS AND HELP

I'm a newbe but want to get an old music box with maybe 72 notes. I can't find a forum to ask things so maybe this forum can help. I was gonna purchase something on ebay but not sure of what to do. Who to trust? Want and old one 19 century that play correctly. Maybe some Christmas tunes. Maybe 6 or 12 tunes with controls that work the correct way. Do people sell good stuff here? Is this the best forum? Email me at my new email ronciccone044@gmail.com

I have a 15 notes music box and I have a 104 holes paper strips as everyone I guess.
I find some songs but there are too longs in terms of paper; have for example 96 notes but need 120 holes for did that.
