Hello all. I am new to this site and decided to join due to my love of Music boxes and my recent desire to start creating them. Eventually Imma try and create cylinders due to their compactness however this is an obvious start point. I wanted to make a couple projects but both projects would close off the music box. Making it Impossible to Re-Feed the paper through when the song finishes. Im curious if anyone has found a way to circumvent having to re-feed. Or maybe theres a completely different way that I'm not thinking of? I'm sorry this post is slightly scattered but I appreciate any help you guys can give. Thank you.
So Im trying to create a music box I have no experience with music or anything else. I only had one music box in my life and its sadly broken and I dont know if there exist modern job which repairs it. so I decided I would recreate it in a better form. I was thinking putting it in a wooden chest but the problem wouldnt that dampen the music? Do you guys have any tip I would be really really thankfull
I punched a few songs out, and have really been enjoying it. As of recently, it seems like the music box is tending to "skip" or "stutter" when playing songs. The gears will continue to move, but it appears that the paper stops moving for about half a second, then it picks back up. It's almost like it loses its "grip" on the paper (but I can't figure out why that would be)
Has anyone seen any similar issues to this? Anyone know what's going on?
All the 30-note crank mechanisms for sale via the store link have plastic gears (and users complaining they break). Except ONE that has copper gears, but... it will not play what we compose/transcribe here, because it is not tuned c d g a b c d e f f# g g# a a# b c c# d d# e f f# g g# a a# b c d e... Identifying the right combo and adding a link to it would be a great help! Alternatively, could the "create" page allow to toggle between "c" and "f" options/tunings, as they seem to be called informally?
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.
I want to make a music box for my friends B-Day. I found the notes here but I'm not sure which Notes / Music box (Kikkerland, grand illusion, wintergatan) I need. It says: Type = Full range 60 But I don't know what this means and which box and notes are the right one.
It should be as similar to the example here as possible. Should I choose a different song? Or will it be possible
I thought of a tune that should be good for a music box. I don't have the skills to inout it and make it into a punch card. I'd love to hear it, because I think it'd make a great tune for a music box, but I don't want to make an official request - just want to pass along the idea in hopes someone else will say "hey, that'd be a good one"
I looked at the melody request page, but that sent me to another site entirely, which appeared to be only for if I wanted to hire someone to create the card. I'd just like to see it on the webpage software (is it melodymaker?)
I made a little song in an app called medly, and it lets you export it as a midi file. I wanted this song to be played with a music box-type sound, and I found this website which says it can import midi, so I was really excited! But... I can’t figure out how to import it.
