Hear your Music!

My VexFlow now lets you hear what you write. Click the play button on the demo below to hear for yourself.

To enable playback, all you need to do is add the line options player=true to the beginning of your VexTab notation. Here's a bebop example:

See A Jazz Blues Progression for more musical examples.

To see the rest of the new features for this release, go to New in VexFlow.

  1. Heya - the bebop scale doesn't play smooth for me, it's very jerky on Chromium on Ubuntu. In Firefox, it's more even, but there's some underruns.

    But great stuff!

  2. Woah this is great! Thanks Mohit! I just added to a bunch of them to my jazz guitar lessons. Here is one example http://willkriski.com/blue-bossa-guitar-study/

  3. Just awesome. This whole system is pretty close to something I've had floating around in my head for awhile.

    I think a great idea would be rhythmic input via tapping on the keyboard in time.

  4. Amazing feature!!!!

    I there any way to use VexFlow code ( not my VexFlow iframe) with player?
    And If so, could I get some callback, when note played, or something ?

    1. Ok.
      It seems that spanish accents make myvexflow crash.
      I used my name Tomás, and just changed to Tomas, and no there is no crash.
      Natural languages problems ;-)
