Remember Music Box composer? Well it’s available for your Mac now too.
Create your own Music Box music, and easily share your compositions with others.
Designed to aid composing your own music prior to punching the paper strips for Music Boxes, MBC allows you to compose, preview and play your creations before printing out the physical strips.
A small but growing library of Music Box Strips can be viewed here, via webplayer or loading into MBC on device:
Demo of composing, printing, punching an playing:
- Supports 15, 20 and 30 note music boxes.
- Share your compositions with others via sharable link.
- Multiple undo
- Disable Notes for temporary changes
- Ripple edits
- Sounds sampled from physical Music Boxes
- Save strip to JPG file, auto creates PDF resized for printing.
The physical Music Boxes with the paper punch strips and are great fun – what I found was missing was an easy way to preview either transpositions or original creations. This aims to fill that gap but it’s also a fun music creation tool in it’s own right.
The Mac App is priced at $14.99.
