Well, I don't know how to make it appear here but it suggested me to do that. So I decided to post it here. I hope that's ok. Here's my profile which offers more than just music box strips! Please check it out and have a lovely day! https://www.fiverr.com/rikumatsuo
In trying to create my music I really have trouble figuring out the timing. I am using my piano sheet music and hymnal. When I create the music here it sounds okay. When published it seems so choppy. What am I doing incorrectly. Music was set to 3/4 timing per measure. I notice that the measures on the creation staff are different colors for 3/4 time there are six positions to place notes. Assuming there are two note positions per note count. Is this an incorrect assumption? Practice, practice, practice. Eventually I'll get it. Have a great day.
Hehey! I'm completely new to this but had ideas for DIY music box projects for ages. I just ordered a hand crank 30 and a motorised 30 to play around with. Are there any differences sound wise between the 20 and 30 versions? If that's the case, I might have to order some 20's too and perhaps tune if needed.
I really wanted to express how wonderful this site is for those of us who love music boxes (hurdy gurdy) of all kinds. What a joy to create, share and download favorite songs that are difficult to find already done in a hand operated hurdy gurdy. The songs people have created are marvelous. I'm still navigating the site and have tried a couple of song creations. My preference is for really old tunes. Really old as in turn of the 20th century. The typical songs you would hear from a carousel calliope. So, there is much to do. Thank you for creating this site and, as indicated by reading your forum, you are diligent in listening to folk's suggestions and implementing them when and if you can. Keep up the fine work you do. It is appreciated.
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?
I'm a newbie here so please forgive me for asking just one stupid question. When I'm writing my own music box music in the create section and import a melody then change the format for 15-note box nearly all of the musical notes are lost. Is there any way around this?
This is a very newbie question, so apologies up front. I'm working with a very long, uncut roll of music for a 30-note player, and I'm wondering if there's a safe, easy way to remove a bit of roll without cycling through the whole thing. Basically, I want to test out the notes at the front, but then remove it without having to churn through all the blank material. Is there a release catch I'm missing?
