Site News / NinSheetMusic's 17th Birthday!
« on: April 11, 2021, 05:57:13 PM »
Today, April 11 2021, marks 17 years since NinSheetMusic began. Lots of people have come and gone in the site's lengthy existence, but it's wonderful to see that the site and community continue to grow and thrive. Thanks to everyone who has made NinSheetMusic what it is today, whether that means contributing sheets, performances, or just being a part of the community.

Happy birthday and here's to many more :)

Guide Submissions / Staccato placement on stem side
« on: January 19, 2021, 12:10:55 AM »
What is this about?

This is a topic about how to position staccatos on the stem side of a note when there are multiple layers on one staff. There are two ways to do this - to center them around the notehead or center them around the stem.

In the following image, the staccatos on beat 2 and 3 of the measure are centered around the stem, while the ones on beat 4 (aside the accents) are centered around the noteheads.



It seems that in older versions of Finale the default was notehead, while in v26 the setting was changed to stem. As such, this is causing inconsistency in the setting in submissions from users on different versions of Finale.

What do I want?

According to Gould's Behind Bars, either is acceptable for a staccato (except when placed with an accent or other articulation - then it should center around the notehead). But, some things to consider...
  • Other articulations (except the wedge/staccatissimo) all center around the notehead, so having only the staccatos moved to the stem would cause inconsistency in the spacing (as in the image above)
  • Putting them directly atop/below the stem makes them potentially easier to miss when reading (could look like an extension of the stem or a printing error)
  • Aligning the staccatos if you have them on both the upper and lower layer vs. having them horizontally offset
  • Consistency with existing sheets on site
As such, I recommend that in general, staccatos be centered around the notehead. This is not a mandate, but an attempt to guide an informed decision, especially for those who aren't familiar with the setting.

How do I change this setting?

If you're on Finale v26 or above, here are the official docs. You can change this setting by going to the Articulation Designer (Edit button for staccato under the Articulation Selection menu) and toggle this box:

[close]

If you're on an older version of Finale (like 2014), the articulation designer dialog box doesn't have that option and staccatos will default to center around the notehead.

Site News / Arrangement + Performance Playlists
« on: November 23, 2020, 01:50:31 AM »
Hey everyone!

You might have noticed we haven't really been doing a lot with our YouTube channel lately. The nature of the site doesn't really lend itself to generating video content on its own, but there's a lot of stuff out there that you might not have seen before. What happens after we upload sheets to the main site - who actually sees our sheets, plays them, or uses the arrangements in some way? Turns out, the answer is quite a lot of you. There are a lot of videos out there! I routinely do a search and am pleasantly surprised how many results turn up.

So on that note I'll be curating playlists of these videos on the NinSheetMusic YouTube channel to share with everyone. These playlists will consist of two types of videos:
  • Sheet music videos by the original arranger
  • Performances by anyone that make use of an arrangement currently on the main site, as stated in the video description (for any instrument)
Playlists for various games/series will be added here over time. If you have a video to add to a playlist after it's created (whether yours or not), please feel free share it on the forums or in the #arranging or #perfoming channels of our Discord server :)

With Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity now out, I thought this might be a good place to start:

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" playlist

Happy viewing!

P.S.: Be on the potential lookout for stuff happening in the future to encourage more performances.

Winter is here!

…well, not for another couple of months. But our fellow longtime member Winter is rejoining the staff after a number of years off. He'll be helping to manage our social media accounts and make improvements to our Discord server.

Please give him a warm welcome / welcome back if you know him already! :P

Site News / Updated series: Megami Tensei/Persona, SaGa, Drakengard/NieR
« on: October 03, 2020, 10:37:06 PM »
Hey all! Quick change today!

We've added series pages for Megami Tensei/Persona and SaGa. Recent updates to the site have started to fill out these well-known series, so these two series now have their own dedicated pages, findable when browsing by series.

The Drakengard series has also been renamed to Drakengard/NieR.

In the future we may add more series pages if/when they have enough good sheets from enough games, so keep an eye out :)

Project Archive / Halloween Update 2020
« on: September 29, 2020, 11:23:01 PM »
Hi! You might have noticed it's almost October which means it's around that time of year again. That is, time to start preparing our yearly Halloween update! Due to the fact that none of the updaters are particularly free this upcoming month and that we have another ongoing project, we'll try to keep it small-ish this year, with one sheet per arranger.

Here's how things will work, similar to our replacements project:

Theme - Any arrangement from a scary setting/game, with a scary title, related to a scary character, or anything of the sort. As long as there's some semblance of spoopiness, we won't be strict about it :P

Topics - Create one topic in the Projects board for your arrangement and include your username/arranger name in the title (e.g. [username]'s Halloween Sheet). Review and feedback will happen there, so check back.

Files - We'll be using the same parent folder as for the replacements. If you don't have access, send me your email. Upload your arrangement to the "Halloween" folder, and updaters will move it into the Approved/Accepted folders as necessary. You'll be responsible for keeping your file updated here.

Deadlines - To ensure we have enough time to finish reviewing before the 31st, please submit your arrangement no later than October 14. Make sure you're around to respond to feedback since any sheet will need to be accepted by the 31st in order to be included on the update.

Any questions, feel free to ask here. Happy arranging!

Site News / Console information while browsing
« on: September 21, 2020, 12:31:05 AM »
Hi everyone :)

Small change to the main site today! At the request of fellow arrangers Static and LeviR.star, game titles displayed when browsing will display the console abbreviation next to them. This will allow users to verify they're looking at the right game (or jog their memory if they don't remember what console a game was on) as well as make it easy for us to check that everything is listed under the correct console. It also matches 1-1 what we write in our update posts.

To see the change, simply navigate to a page that lists sheets (ex. https://www.NinSheetMusic.org/browse/series/Pokemon) and perform a hard refresh if your browser still has old page cached. For a list of what each console abbreviation stands for, you can refer to this topic.

If you notice anything wrong (i.e. incorrect or missing console) please let me know. Thanks and happy browsing!

Site News / New site artwork!
« on: June 06, 2020, 05:36:56 PM »
Hi everyone!

We recently had an event for users to provide new artwork for the main site. Today, the banner and favicon have been updated, as well as our social media profile pictures, for the first time in over a decade :)

The banner and favicon are provided by KC Symphony and our new social media profile pic (as well as Zeta's new look) is provided by Sir Bone. Please give them a big thank you for their contributions.

The rest of the artwork we received is great as well, and I'd like to thank fi_le and Advos for their submissions too. You can find all of the artwork submitted in the previous topic (linked at the beginning of this post). Sometime in the future, we may find a use for them too.

Speaking of, the art refresh means that the time may be ripe to think about t-shirt designs again. Stay tuned for that...
