Yes that's right, we've uploaded our 2000th sheet today. Not to mention we have officially uploaded a PDF for every song on the site. You can now browse all of NinSheetMusic, and have the luxury of not only both MUS, MIDI files, but also PDF's.

Ok just to be clear, what all can be submitted other than piano music?
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: Winter on August 20, 2011, 06:00:16 AM
Well, the way things are set up right now, just classical orchestras. At a later time, we may have options for more typed of groups (String Quartets...) You know. But right now, a simple Concert band, piano, and piano duets are all we accept.
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: Olimar12345 on August 20, 2011, 06:07:16 AM
Ok, so Orchestral pieces and concert band pieces only?

also, what happened to "Winterkid09"?

I'm going to need a bit more details than this.

I am too. What exactly qualifies as a classical orchestra? I can only assume that it would be the orchestration for Beethoven's Ninth, since that is the make-up of a basic orchestra these days. Plus a tuba and an extra wind or too, and more percussion as well.
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: Winter on August 20, 2011, 06:58:26 AM
You know, I haven't even figured this out myself. If you consider it orchestral, go ahead and submit it, what really matters is whether each instrument is playable.

If need be, we will separate arrangements more specifically at a later time.
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: Shadoninja on August 20, 2011, 07:11:46 AM
we as a community probably should have discussed this in greater detail rather than suddenly implementing it.
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: MaestroUGC on August 20, 2011, 07:24:40 AM
This is how I see the breakdowns happening:

Symphonic Orchestra: The largest orchestration group that really has no limits to the instrumention in my opinion, but will need to at least include: Strings, Winds, Brass, and Percussion.

Chamber Orchestra: At its most basic, a string orchestra with winds and a few other instruments.

Concert Band: Typical make-up of a standard concert/symphonic wind orchestra

Marching Band: Typical make-up of a standard marching band.

String Orchestra: Self-explanitory.

Ensemble: Any collection of instruments that doesn't fit any of the above.

Chamber Ensemble: Duets, Trios, Quartets, etc. Mainly a collection of soloists.

I'd be willing to create an actual guideline for instrument breakdown for each of these, if you want. We can incorporate these as they come.

Be sure to be as specific as possible. An instrument list would probably work best.

we as a community probably should have discussed this in greater detail rather than suddenly implementing it.

I agree, did anyone even know of plans to implement orchestral arrangements into the site before this update? Besides Winter and JaMaHa, of course.

This was just kind of sprung up, it's not necessarily a bad thing but it does create complications. It seems--to use my and Vera's favorite word--frivolous. Are there going to be enough orchestral arrangements submitted to merit an announcement that we accept them? I don't know as of yet but as for myself, I don't know enough about orchestras and the like to arrange something for them. I need a better understanding of other instruments... :P
Title: Re: Update, Friday August 19th of 2011
Post by: Nintendude73 on August 21, 2011, 02:42:40 AM
It doesn't really seem like anything bad can come of the addition.  Maybe some discussion would have been merited (at least it is now), but what's really the worst case here?  Some people submit arrangements that aren't really what Winter had in mind and we have to come up with some guidelines?

For the record, I didn't know about this either, but it seems like it's been been brought up before by forumers as something people wanted, so I'm kind of surprised by some of the negative replies.

Post by: Winter on August 21, 2011, 05:13:37 AM
I'm working out a more detailed system for accepting orchestral arrangements. Hopefully we'll have a thread up with guidelines and help topics to help the forum understand what's up.

If you have any suggestions, make a thread if it's detailed, otherwise small suggestions can be PM'ed to me.

Y2K

It's 2K means 2000

Y2K was the year 2000

It's a joke about the 2000 sheets.

By the time I get around to adding that image to my signature, NSM will have S3K sheets.
I've already started working on some orchestral arrangements, but will mod them to whatever guidelines are set up. Can't wait to see them go up on the site. Sound gorgeous.

Post by: Bespinben on August 25, 2011, 11:42:54 PM
I've never arranged outside of piano, but I may give a try at arranging an orchestration. I'll probably do small ensembles though, since it I'm trying it for the first time. Nothing huge, like what Fingerz is doing for Tetris type A right now.
