Hello! I have seen numerous requests for electronic synths as a possible instrument addition to Noteflight. At the moment, if we want to make and pan a custom sound, we have to pitch bend and slide with the \ and ~ key commands, which after a while becomes messy, annoying, and really laggy to the point where the song stops playing 5 measures before the actual end (but that isn't the main idea of this request).
An example of the messy sound mutation I have to do is in this score I created: https://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/389362371d35da96dc78c39530c7ee85549b4680 the bassline for this is an electronic synth that I created to try to recreate the bass in a genre called Liquid Drum and Bass. An example of this genre is here: https://soundcloud.com/andreasortmusic/no-air-preview
Another highly requested feature that I’ve upvoted were “electronic drums and drum kits”. I am wishing for a specific one called an 808 Drum Kit. This drum kit used extensively in Hip Hop and Trap music. The kick is actually distorted to where it makes a pitch. My best recreation of this in Noteflight is with a Basic Acoustic Bass (the Upright Crescendo Bass just doesn’t have the range clarity), as shown here: https://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/edb3a249f6e04d221970e03ebe5f66305f0e1ff7 with the real bass sounding something like this: https://soundcloud.com/monstercat/aero-chord-surface
While this is a start to the list of synths I have in mind, I know this will take some time for the team to consider and build this request. Hopefully, you guys look at this because I know other suggestions haven’t been as successful.
