Now that repeaters are out, you can make songs much more compact.
They should be added to the program.
Thankfully, it already supports 1 tick songs, and those are also really easy to make with repeaters.
The speed of songs in the program are a tiny bit off, but not much.
Finally, even if you don't want to include a schematic exporter, it would be cool if you could plan out the layout.
Also, here's a tip to making songs with repeaters:
= Music block
You can play 2 music blocks per tick like this, and it's super compact. The music blocks next to redstone will play.
Keep in mind this only works if the redstone is 1 block long, which is the case in between 2 repeaters.
Also I've noticed that one game tick is 0.25 seconds for you, while a real game tick is between 1/8 or the theoretical 1/16. 1/4 is way to slow. :tongue.gif:
1/8? Isn't that a bit fast? I'll look into that when I come home from school.
It's definitely not 1/4; when I built this in Minecraft, it either played too quickly or too slowly as compared to the song planner's rendition, so I ultimately gave up trying to build this song. (Then again, it was my first attempt at Redstone circuitry, so it might just be my failure.)
Turns out the percussion doesn't sound as good as it does in the planner either, so I might go back and try building this again without it. Either way, good luck to whomever wants to build this with the percussion in it. If you need me to fill in the gap between beats 296 - 324, let me know.
i feel quite retarded asking this question, cuz...i feel like a noob.
but anyway, what is the needed delay between the blocks, cuz i cant get that to work....

You should imply the copying/moving/cutting as soon as possible because it would make song planning a lot easier than now. Especially in songs with a strong, repeating beat it would save a lot of time.

"With the aid of computers, we solve problems which we wouldn't have without them."
Working on version 2, it will include:
* Better interface
* Infinite amount of layers, instead of 7
* Ability to set playback speed
* Selecting, copying, pasting, cutting, deleting (this will be done through the clipboard, so you can move pieces of songs between different files.)
* Ability to mute/solo layers
* Links to tutorial videos
* And some more...
If you would'nt mind i would like to know how to make programs smilliar to this! :biggrin.gif:
Can you teach me sir? :DDD
1. Download Game Maker
2. Spend around three years learning Game Maker Language
3. Throw together a program in about 5 hours.
4. Post it on the forums.
5. BAM! 2300+ downloads!
I knew this was GM the moment I ran it... I have about 2-3 years experience myself.
You know they have a Mac version now? The only problem is I don't think it supports DLL's yet. I don't know; check it out.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
when switching from 2 tick to 1 tick mode, it could be handy to if the notes are automatically transposed so they keep having the same amount of time between the notes.
I'm currently having difficulties making saria's song, as I only noticed at the end that I needed 16th notes too...
changing the song now means moving 320 notes to the new location they need.
but I'd already be helped enormously if you knew of a way to do this more easily than basically starting from scratch again.
EDIT: nvm helping me, I figured out a way. (open the file in notepad, then replacing every instance of '|1|' with '|2|')
If anyone else have suggestions, now's the time to inform me. :biggrin.gif:
If possible, show on the notes the 'color' that the end-result note should correspond to ingame. Sometimes I click too much and it's hard to get back where I wanted, I'm much more visual than audio.
Cut/copy/paste have already been suggested, but I'm going to second those anyway.
If at all possible, perhaps consider setting up a public FTP or somewhere that people can exchange save files for this? If you do that, who knows, you might even be able to get some paypal donations for you work.
And then, I don't know the constraints of the program really, and I can't imagine it would be simple but... how awesome would a song import tool be for standard music files (.mp3, .wmv, .flac?)
