I am working on my third piano sonata. What is so special about this sonata is that I dedicated it to Beethoven. So I am using components of Beethoven's style such as sudden dynamic changes with my melodies and harmony.
I am working on the first movement right now and so far I have this:
Introduction: Andante with octave tremolos in the right hand going down 2 octaves of the C minor scale and arpeggios in the left hand, piano until the forte chord at the end
Exposition: Allegro with lots of chords, forte ending on fortissimo chords
I only have a few measures of the Allegro section so far.
The Andante section sounds melancholy and it is supposed to represent the end of Beethoven's life. The Allegro section so far sounds dramatic and is supposed to represent me as a composer continuing down Beethoven's path as if I was Beethoven II and also how important Beethoven is as an influencing composer to me. C minor is a very fitting key for both of these emotions.
It's relatively easy... It's because for the past 10 years I've only focused on music theory for its "playing" usage. I've never considered composition but what can I say, sometimes you just feel a surge of emotions and you want it to manifest in the real world.
I don't know about other people who use MDL but I think it would be great if cymbals had more options than just the six that are there. Some good ones would be:
- Crash chokes
- Hi Hat
- Tap chokes
- Sizzle sucks (also called splash chokes, sizz-ucks)
Examples of most of these are demonstrated in these videos:
Is there any chance that we can get more cymbal sounds in future updates of MDL?
My first composition is called Davy Jones Theme and it´s my version of this piece that comes from the film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead´s Man´s Chest.
I was curious if there was a way to make a gock shot using the new MDL
Just uploaded my first ever piece on this website, and I would greatly appreciate some feedback to help me improve either this piece or my ability as a composer...
It's up on my profile, so if you have time please have a look and give me some constructive criticism!
Here is an updated score.
I was bored today so I decided to make this by ear. Idk how to get the first ending to extend past one measure, but I think it turned out well. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated (even negative feedback).
I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:
I would love some feedback on it. I have heard from another person that I kind of use the same rhythm over and over. I honestly didn't plan on changing the rhythm because nocturnes typically will have a triplet rhythm. And the rhythm of the melody I think is part of why it sounds so beautiful to me. Also it is Bb which is a key I associate with a moonlit night.
I composed it over 3 days. Anyway, what do you think?
Hi everyone im new i do not know how to do these things i wanted to request a midi song if anyone can make one
All That Remains - What If I Was Nothing
Thank you if that possible
¡Hola! Espero que estén todos bien. Les hago una pequeña consulta: ¿Cómo puedo transcribir los compases 78, 79, 80, 81 y 82 de "Fur Elise" de Beethoven? Estuve intentando con varias alternativas pero ninguna me resulta. Busqué por Google y nada. ¿Qué significan esos "3" arriba de cada tres semicorcheas? Disculpen las molestias, soy nueva en este programa y me parece una maravilla. Gracias de antemano.
Hello! I hope everybody is fine. I ask you a little question: How can I transcribe bars 78, 79, 80, 81 and 82 of "Fur Elise" by Beethoven? I was trying with several alternatives but none of them work for me. I searched for Google and nothing. What do those "3" mean above every three sixteenths? Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm new to this program and I think it's wonderful. Thanks in advance.
So it has many flaws.
I won't change it though XD
Please feel free to leave your comments.

Well, I have changed some notes, because they really sound terrible XD
would love to preset automatic sticking, for CMD/T shortcut
It's a simple melody stated over 4 bars that I play around with.
Left hand is maybe a bit repetitive.
I would appreciate feedback on what I could have done differently. Particularly in the left hand to add colour.
I really love mdl but i really want the new sounds to be added and I dont think we have gotten an update since about a week after it came out
This is my first piece and although some of it is kinda weird I like it, but could I have some feedback from your point of view? I'd like to hear what you have to say.
