Hole punch paper strips Export

Wow! It seems like this melody can be played offline on a 15 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 15 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!

Ok so basically I tried composing a melody myself but it was hard and my brain eventually stopped working ( I am better at musical arrangements). So anyway, I worked on the creepy lullaby and realised that by keeping the melody and adding that same melody flipped upside down for the "bassline", you can get a spooky distorting effect. More methods to come. There are a lot of ways to make orchestrated music creepy, but doing so in music boxes is much more limited, but I'll try to find a way to simulate those effects on this sequencer.
