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.

We would like to invite you to visit our new forum page! Currently, the functionality is pretty basic, so you can't post anything other than plain boring text and links, but we plan to start gradually improving it in near future if it appears to be popular among our users.

By default you will be notified about posts, that are submitted by people you follow, but you can always opt in for receiving notifications about every new forum post in your notification settings. We would like everybody to consider this, because there will be questions about music boxes and the website in general and many of you already have enough experience to help the others.

Huge thanks to all current and future contributors!

Simple way to transfer printed sheets to card stock?

What method do you guys use to get the printer paper exports onto card stock? I've tried laminating the printer paper with packing tape, taping 3 sheets of printer paper together, etc, without much success. I was wondering if I could use a glue stick and just glue the sheets to card stock but thought that might be too thick and am hoping that asking here will save much time experimenting.

How to make it into a MIDI file ?

Hello everyone,

I found this YouTube channel:
[suspicious link]
And I think the sounds are amazing but there are no MIDI files to download and I’m very interested in the Lana Del Rey’s songs for a gift to a friend. But I’m not a musician or anything and I don’t understand how I can « translate » what I hear into a MIDI file which I can use on this website. I don’t play any instruments and I know nothing about music notes..
I know there is a page where we can pay people to do a song but before using this option I would like to try myself. And I also know there are a few Lana songs here but I prefer the YouTube versions which are more complete.
Do you know the steps please ?
I would love to learn and do it myself if it is possible !

Thank you so much if you help

I'm currently playing this game and I'm in love with it. I think there may come a point in my life where I will hear this music box theme and cry because it's been so long.
