Audio Playback

Flat integrates a great playback that interprets your sheet music directly in your web browser, without any plugins. Discover here how to use it, change the volume, the instruments’ reverb, swing and use our metronome.

Implementation notes

Our goal is to provide a good trade-off between performance and interpretation quality, so it can work well even with a low amount of memory (you might not have the best experience with a large number of instruments).

At this time, most of the notations are interpreted, except:

  • Accelerando/Ritardendo
  • Mordents
  • Turn
  • Snap pizzicato
  • Bowing Directions
  • Text
