  1. Sorry for the delay. I will fix this asap and let you know.
  2. I wanted to post 2 commercials for Music Jotter that @Ken320 and @Monarcheon composed soundtracks for. These commercials are going to be crucial to my advertising, so I would like to give a little recognition here. They are going up on YouTube and if anyone is interested in subscribing to my YouTube channel, you may do so here. Commercial #1 written by Blaire, aka @Monarcheon. I wanted to commend her for working with me and under some certain guidelines. I had asked for a "hopeful" sounding piece of music, in which she not only composed beautifully, but also produced the mp3 to match the 2 minute commercial length without any issues. The transition into the ending was executed perfectly, and the introduction to the orchestral portion of the piece is just perfect. The commercial is here: Commercial #2 written by Ken, aka @Ken320. I gave Ken free reign on this one, since this commercial was shorter and not a primary commercial. Nevertheless, he shocked me with his skill level and presented to me a really well written Baroque piece that I felt played along nicely with this commercial: By the way, both commercials received some likes from the community I am building on my Facebook Page which you are free to like as well. Thanks again to Ken and Blaire, I wouldn't have been able to execute these without your help. If anyone has any feedback to the commercials and/or the music, feel free to let us know your thoughts.
  3. I am opening this up again because I need music written for the following commercial: Music Jotter Commercial I have some basic guidelines, if interested, let me know in this thread and I will PM you with more details.
  4. If you have a YouTube or Facebook video that needs original music, you can place your project here to see which composer is available for help. If you are a creator of a video asking for help, you can ask a specific composer about using his or her music on your video, or you can ask for a new score. Either way, you must credit the composer in the Facebook or YouTube description, otherwise if we receive complaints, you not be allowed to post in this forum in the future. So it is your best interest to oblige. All interaction can occur via posts, private messages, through Facebook or personal email. Personal email should only be exchanged through private messages.
  5. Thanks to the both of you. I am going to lock this topic for now. I engaged in a private discussion.
  6. Hi All, I am going to create a 2-3 minute commercial for Music Jotter, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me create a soundtrack for this commercial? The type of music I am looking for is theatrical, dramatic with endearing moments. I would also need it to be rendered into a studio quality mp3. I can be more specific with the type of music I'd like per section of the video once I get the video out, but I would like to see who would be interested in helping me with this. The video will not take me long since I already created a 20 minute demo, and most likely will just take parts of that demo to create the commercial. I may create 2 or 3 commercials, I am not sure, so more than one composer is welcome. Thank you very much.
  7. *Windows Only* I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be releasing Music Jotter for just $9.99 for a limited time to anyone who wishes to get the product at a phenomenal discount . Although I have to create a better video demo (in the works), I would say the selling points of this product over others out there include: Midi Scrubbing: Try for yourself, scrubbing is easy, fast, allows the user to scrub forwards and backwards, and honors note ties. Tuplet Entry: There is no need to continuously apply a tuple mask each time you wish to add a new tuple group. Mixer: Very intuitive and easy to add new instruments, and update channels, solo tracks, editing panning, and more. Share Comments: View and comment on other works directly within Music Jotter. In return, if you can provide a testimonial of the product (you don't have to but I will probably contact you at one point), I would really appreciate that! Either Buy or Try Here Demo Full Version
  8. I meant no harm at all and to be honest I never really thought about it. I added an "NA" field to those of you who don't wish to leave a gender.
  9. Just as an FYI, Music Jotter is for sale, and I am selling limited copies for $49.99 as Beta Pre-Release. Since this is a pre release version, the price will not stay at $49.99. But for those of you who do purchase the first few copies, you will receive all updates and fixes. There is also a demo available as well so you can test out the product to see if it is right for you. Music Jotter Store If you have any questions about the product, you can use the Support tab to submit any inquiries.
  10. I moved this thread into a more appropriate forum, but I might be able to help you here. I personally like Symphonic Orchestra, the strings and woodwinds are not bad sounding. For piano if interested, you might want to check out the Black Grand. I used this one personally for my pieces when I used to compose.

I also am going to add another forum for our notation software, which will be dedicated to sales, bug submissions, and features. I will activate this forum once I am ready for beta testing. Let me know if you like the new layout, and if it flows better.
  15. Update for 10/27/2016: I would just like to inform everyone that further development of new features for Music Jotter has been finalized before the first initial release. The rest of the development of this product before release will focus on finalizing Soundfonts, bug fixes, partial integration with the web, and interface fixes if necessary. Here are the final features that have been added: Music Scrubbing (click the mouse and drag to playback portions of a score) Realistic Playback using up to 4 metrics (tempo, velocity, attack and duration) There will be a value from 0 through 20. 0 indicates no realistic playback, 1 indicates a low randomness and 20 indicates the highest randomness of the 4 metrics. Mixer finalized (mute, solo, instrument change, channel change, volume control per channel, master volume, master tempo) The program doesn't support antialiasing on the screen, however, it supports exporting to an antialiased PDF. Soundfont integration 95% complete. Currently fixing a few issues, but will have ability to export a WAV file.
