Suggestions for creating music

1 replies


I love sound shapes, it's such a great game! I don't know if there will ever be a sequel, but here are some music-related things I wish I were able to do:

1. More control on the loops / Loop a custom number of bars (screens). Sometimes I would like to create an arrangement of 2 bars and having them loop instead of always having each bar loop. With this mechanic it would possible to create more elaborated tracks.

2. Add other time signatures like 6/8 and 3/4. I'd love to create tracks in something other than 4/4. 

3. Have a way to change the octave of a given note. Often I have a melody in my mind where the notes are not necessarily located on the same octave. I'd like for example to place a "G" note and make it one octave lower or higher.

4. Right now the notes in a given screen can be heard in the next 3 screens. It would be great if we were able to change this number.

5. Make it possible to add notes that doesn't "fit" in the scale. For example a "F sharp" doesn't normally fit in a C major scale, but sometimes you might want to add one to create a tension or an atmosphere.

Thanks for this great game!
