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.

Make music shorter but no cutting notes

Hello,
I have a question maybe stupid but I'm new here.
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.
Here an example:

Exist a way to reduce that for fit the music to 104 holes? Maybe I bought the worng paper...
Thank you very much really :)

How long is a Kikkerland 15 strip?

Does anyone know how long a Kikkerland 15 strip is? Not in dimensions, but in the measurement this site uses for length. For example: when you create a melody on this site, the default length is 256, or 32 measures of 4/4 time.

( Continuation of A mirror's secret. {That's right. I'm going to try. Even though I said it's going to be too long to be practical.}) "I am, alive. I'm alive. I shouldn't be alive. The ticking. The sound of life for me. I've heard it before. Back when I was running. Why wasn't I thrown out? The others that stopped ticking were. I don't even have to ask. I already know. The king's cousins like me. And won't allow me to rest. It's....nice....being alive. They've missed me. I can feel it. I've been slaved over. Slaved over for a long time. So much time, wasted. Trying to get me ticking again. There's bodies. Cold, shiny, plastic bodies. Those bodies. Those were my replacements. But those two young breathers, weren't fooled by any doppelganger. They know me. Who am I? I am a toy. A cold, shiny, plastic toy. Made for children. Or, that's what my line is. I have metal pieces. These pieces set me far apart from the others. I can walk. I have a tick. What's a tick? It's my heartbeat. That's what a tick is. It's what makes me alive. it's what makes me, me. And I, am, alive." (This bit of the story was taken out of the editor on Quotev. Where I've been writing it. I tried to fix the spacing, but it's still a bit off.) I hope everyone's having a good day!
