Musical Note Pad Free


*** New Features ***
- Added SD-card save and auto-save functionality! Look in SD card in /MusicalNotePad directory to access files directly. Depending on your device, files may be on internal phone storage in the /MusicalNotePad directory.
- Increased max zoom-out distance (higher notes possible!).
- Chords now have stems and flags.

Musical Note Pad is a musical composition tool for Android devices that provides you with the ability to use a touch-screen to compose music in standard musical notation. Not only can you write, save, and load your compositions, you can play them back audibly (in whole or in part), choosing from 128 MIDI instruments. Whether you want to capture the fleeting inspiration of a musical epiphany, refine your next brilliant symphony, or just create a sweet MIDI ringtone version of that new hit song, Musical Note Pad offers an intuitive and interactive solution any time, any where.

Known Issues:
- Ties across measures display but don't work (and stick around too long).
- Lag at load time (occasional).
- Zooming out all the way can be kind of quirky. To touch the lowest possible notes, zoom in just a little.
- Changing time signature of measure with existing notes can cause problems (measure not displaying all notes/rests).

User reviews of Musical Note Pad Free
I like the interface mostly. However, as a musician and a software developer, I find it rather disappointing that you would release this before it had basic functionality. I can't save or load and I really can't figure out how to play the score. This just simply isn't ready to go. You should really let folks know how much isn't there. Should be pretty nice once finished. I will keep an eye out.

It's okay Good for creating/composing, but most of the time when I try to zoom out on the staff, it kicks me out of the app. SUGGESTION: read tutorial before composing. If you do not, you will be completely lost while writing the song. It is slightly complicated 'manuvering'the whole thing but, if it would stop kicking me out and be less touchy, 5 ⭐

It's a little glitchy and you can't have triplets so I'm kinda second guessing this app... :/

Crap Can't change staves, no slurs or ties. Just missing too many basic features to be of any use other than as a toy. And it crashed 3 times in the first 5 minutes. Deleting.
