Product Updates

Exactly one year ago, we added the first tempo marks in our web-based music notation editor.

Today, thanks to your feedback, we're proud to introduce a brand new and innovative experience to easily add, modify and remove tempo marks in all your creations.

We added a new customization option, available for everyone: the preferred number of measures per line.

This option completes the existing note spacing parameter that always guarantees you a minimum space between the notes.

You can now add a buzz roll in our web-based music notation editor: add a note on an unpitched instrument, go in the Dynamic menu and click on the buzz roll tool.

Over the past months we worked hard to improve the experience of our web music editor, especially for the v8 where we introduced a more intuitive way to add and manipulate music notation elements.

We worked on defining a better way to display the elements on smaller screens and creating better and more natural touch interactions.

Almost 1 year ago I wrote a blog post to announce the possibility to zoom on your music scores. Today this feature is so obvious that everybody almost forgot it :) .

But a few weeks ago we completely reworked it, bringing great improvements to this one: Performance, Shortcuts and Touchpad.

At Flat, we want to make the experience of composing a child’s play. That's why we aim at providing you with the simplest interface you can have.

But as we built Flat to be intuitive, we also have to consider and anticipate the fact that you can feel a bit lost from time to time. It happens to the best of us after all. 😊

Along with the release of Flat v8, we wanted to be still more helpful at any moment. Then, decided to completely revamp our editor documentation and make it available at the moment you need it most: when editing a music score.

So today, let's talk about your new best friend on Flat, a.k.a. the Editor Help.

Hi everybody,

As you may know, a while ago we introduced a feature that allows you to receive either Email or In App notifications when other users interact with you or your scores (Comments, Likes, Follow, Score Invites etc...).

How to get started ?

  • Go on your Account Settings
  • Click on Notifications to see you notifications settings
  • Click on the toggle button named Browser notification, under the section Desktop Notification
  • Your browser will ask you to Allow to send you Notifications
  • After that you should receive a notification confirming the success of the procedure

We hope that you will like this brand new feature.
And as always do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter any issue :D

Hi all,

Do you know what is, to me, the most rewarding thing when composing? The answer is simple: just listening what the result really sounds like. I'm telling you this as a musician, and I think that I am not the only one in this situation.

And today, I am writing this blog post to tell you more about this topic. Let's talk about how the result of what you compose precisely sounds on Flat. For, we added some nice improvements in the listening experience.
