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.
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
I recently purchased the Wingostore 30-note music box from Amazon. The gears are copper and I felt that getting this would last longer and be more durable than the Grand Illusions plastic gears, and likely prevent slippage. Unfortunately after a very short period of time, my gears are making a squeaking noise after every revolution.
Has anyone else experienced this with the copper gear models, and is there a good way to fix this? Is it better to just get the Grand Illusions music box instead?
My music box (K15) works fine and doesn’t stop as much on the paper sold with the box but I wanted to try to make a longer one using regular paper and ‘laminating’ it with tape. The tape makes it so that the puller will just slide over it and not properly pull the paper? Any suggestions to help me fix it?
Hi guys! So i recently input a song into the online music box melody editor and i noticed some red 'X's ; i understand that those are repetitive notes positioned too close to each other and music boxes may not be able to play them. But is there a way to rectify it? like changing its position but simultaneously not affecting its melody etc? I do not have any music background so I'm quite confused and do not know how to make it work. Would really appreciate any help!! Thank you in advance!
I got my 30notes music box yesterday, It worked perfectly until I got curious about how it works and rotated some of the note gears with my hand... Was I not supposed to do that?? Now some of the notes doesn't play. Randomly. Sometimes they works just well, sometimes it doesn't. Is there any way to recover...??
This is my first time ever composing and immediately running into a problem. How do I make sharps using a 15 note. Is it a combination of other notes? I really have no background in music theory and just a point in a direction would be amazing. Thanks
