Automatic music theme search.

Postby Enrique » Tue May 02, 2017 10:06 pm

Hi: A couple of years ago in this site an embedded application existed which allowed to find the author and piece name by entering a theme on a keyboard drawn on the screen. By clicking on the keys in some rudimentary way you had the music piece printed (on the screen) and then by pressing a button an engine search for the music. It output a lot of composer names and, some times you were happy enough to know who wrote that piece of music so many times rounding your head. After this long introduction, I would like to know if the mentioned device can still be accessed though IMSLP. That's all.

If you "switch back to classic skin" (very bottom of the imslp page) you see in the left column: Browse score, by Melody, but the interface has changed.

You can also go directly to http://www.peachnote.com/

Thank you coulonnus, I used the keyboard in the link, but it doesn't respond to the mouse. Maybe the fault is mine, but I have Javascript enabled and working, though accessing through IMSLP it warns 'Error: Javascript must be enabled'. Anyway, is it possible to choose time values, say the theme uses crochets and quavers?

Do you have another browser? Often site developers make a version that works with their browser by chance but fails with another browser.

I am not aware of time value inputs.
