A demo for songs based in 2 vs. songs based in 3. This version, without triplets, is playable on a 15 note box without having to be spun at an obscene tempo and using lots of paper. Look to my other version of this song for more info on that.

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!

This version has triplets, but is much too fast to be played on a music box. I tried to use photoshop to scale it down so that it would use less paper and have notes punched in between the lines, but it became too complicated since the PDF breaks the strip into sections instead of having a continuous strip. Hopefully, I can find a good solution for songs with triplets in MBM soon! Truthfully, if I was disciplined enough I could do the math to downsize this arrangement; I've done it before. But it takes a lot of time and effort, and I'm hoping I can find a good solution for others, too.

Thank you! I felt like it was about time to post about this to show how different a song sounds when you change how each beat is composed.
