Quick Start Guide

Create a song for the Songs2See Game in five easy steps using the  Songs2See Editor

1. Import songs into the Songs2See Editor


You can import your song either as an audio file in MP3 or WAV format, or as notation file in MIDI or MusicXML. Notation files have the advantage that less editing work is needed to have the song ready for the game. To import a file, click on “File-> Import MIDI” or ” File->Import MusicXML”, and the notation will be displayed in the Piano Roll view. Audio files can be imported by clicking on “File->Import Audio” and the editor will automatically extract the main melody and the Beat Grid.

2. Refine the Beat Grid

 

The Beat Grid can be checked by activating the Metronome for playback and checking if the beats match the audio file. If any errors need to be corrected, you can use the Beat Grid Editor. Check the  Songs2See Manual for more information.

3. Edit Notes

Possible error in the notation or from the automatic extraction need to be corrected. Errors can be easily fixed by clicking on the blue note objects and moving them to the correct location. You can also use the edit option available when you right-click on a given note.

4. Set the key

For the score sheet, it is necessary to set the correct key for the song. The notes that belong to the key are marked with blue dots on the keys of the keyboard of the Piano Roll view. The majority of the notes of the song should be notes that belong to the key. If necessary, use the Key drop-down menus to select another key.

5. Export your song

Click on “File-> Save for Songs2See Game” to save the finished song for the Songs2See Game. You can now open this file in the game using the Open File symbol on the top left corner of the game interface. You can also save you song as MIDI or MusicXML or use the Score Sheet View to save the notation as a pdf or jpg file.
