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.
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
- Bowing Directions
- Palm mute / Let ring
- Bends, Falls, glisses, doits, and scoops
- Slash notation

Does the Crescendo and Diminuendo affects both part of a piano score?
Like all the dynamics on Flat, they only affect the stave where they are added.
