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.

many wrong notes!

Hi guys, I'm having trouble with my first music box creation.. I've punched out the holes on my paper strip but when I play my melody through the music box it sounds all wrong, like it's in a minor key or something. I've double checked the notation and I can't see any errors.. the timing of the music is perfect but the melody is way off. Any ideas where I could be going wrong? Any help appreciated.

Problem with fruity loop (midi import)

Hello,
I am new here. Thanks for this forum and this wonderful website.
I have a problem when i try to import midi file from fruity loops. The rythm is not respected. I have some gap between chords
For exemple, i have an Aminor on the first time of second bar and after import it's on the second time . I really don't understand what's happen.
Another people with this problem ? A particular midi editor is recommanded ?
I can put some photo somewhere to show you.
Sorry for my bad english
Thanks for your help
David
