If there are 60 notes melodies, why there is not a mechanism that actually can play them? there is the technology ... I will love to help in the project, one important thing is to do metal gears instead of plastic ones :)
Hi! I just got myself a 15 note music box. I'm sort of tired of holding it with my other hand while i crank it. And of course I will do some experimenting on my own, but can anyone give me some tips on how to create a housing for the mechanism that makes a nice, big sound? How can I make it as loud as possible, without a mic?
Also, I heard some problems with the gears breaking or something... I have access to a 3-d printer where I live, does anyone know the dimensions of the gears or something, in case they break? or maybe I can buy the gears to replace them?
So ill keep this simple. I was going to get my girlfriend a music box for her 30th birthday on the 30th of august. I had the box picked out from 'simplycoolgifts' but only yesterday he told me he cant find the sheet music for the song of my choice which was. Noel Gallaghers 'she taught me to fly'. It was to go into digital form but have the traditional sound of a music box. Would anybody here please be able to help me in this situation.
Request the forum's help on something I am occupied with and have no knowledge of.
This is regarding a musical clock which used to play 6 tunes. However, either the pinned cylinder was damaged and has been sanded in such a way that no trace of original pin positions remain or this cylinder is a replacement. Either way, I am stuck.
The tunes are chosen by a hand on the dial and thus the cylinder is displaced slightly by every such selection of tune by moving the hand. There are supposed to be 10 bells and 20 hammers, with 2 hammers striking each bell. Bells are also broken so those need to be cast and tuned to the notes/frequencies of the tunes.
If I were to list those 6 Turkish Tunes and give their music sheet/notesheet, will this forum be able to help me with pin positions as well as the notes to which the bells need to be tuned? If someone here has this knowledge and wants to help me and charge, I would consider it if I could afford it.
Requesting forum members and musicians with mechanical bent of mind for help.
I am new here and was looking for any help if possible! I want to create Gabe Bondoc's Gentlemen Don't as a midi file but I have no idea where to start! Any advice or guidance would be much appreciated! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2CU7q8wVoA
Hi, I'm new here and I just created a song in the creator, but I have a quick doubt. Why when I click on the same note consecutively, the second one changes its color to red (instead of orange)? I just exported the hole punch paper strips and the crosses appear in red too.
Does this mean that the mechanism can't play the same note consecutively that fast? or what? Thank you!
