    I used to play the violin. 'Twas great.
    Except then I had to drop Orchestra so I could take French and all my art classes too.
    'Twould be amazing if I could play the violin in Mabi.

    Wobbu wobbu wobbuffet.
    ( I vote for all of the above.
    Bassoons, Euphoniums, Saxes, and Ocarinas would be nice too. Maybe even a Hydraulophone(see video below)?


    Anyways, how would conductors work in Mabi? )

    OOC: See my previous post for an example of how a conductor might be implemented.

    OOC :: That actually sounds like a great idea, IMO. :O

    I want a violin though.
    According to wikipedia, the first Lutes appeard at around the 13th century AD, while the game is kinda messed up: when the millitens arrived on ireland, Nuadha had already lost the throne. So the game must be set at around 1880 BC ~ 1700 BC

    So to devcat, when instruments were invented isnt important in this game. BTW, the Viol (predossesor of the violin), Shawm (predossesor of the oboe), harpsichord (predossesor of the piano), organ and Horn was invented during the Renaissance period i think (14th~16th centuries)

    Walking while playing... What's the point of being a bard when you cannot move around and play?

As an orchestra needs a lot of instruments, some of which aren't available, Nexon would need to implement quite a bit, most notably the keyboard as almost all other instrument types are already represented (keyboards are both string and percussion, falling into a class almost by themselves).

    Essentially, players would sign up for this large-scale minigame by the type of instrument they wish to play. Upon the beginning of the minigame, players would be teleported to their proper orchestra seats, according to their chosen instruments. (Obviously there would have to be some sort of limiter on just how many people could play the same type of instrument; don't want an "orchestra" with only lute players!) It would work like the party system -- players could start "orchestra parties" that would be listed on a separate board (similar to Shadow Mission parties) along with the name of the conductor and the song chosen for the session. Players could then sign up for a session with a known competent conductor and/or a song they wish to play, or make a new session themselves.

    The song used in the session would be selected by the player who first signed up for the session -- there would be an option to pick from a list of Mabinogi audio tracks or to donate a score scroll to the list. Songs added to the list would remain permanently on file, with a 5-star rating system that would allow players to score player-made songs based on quality. Songs regularly scoring poorly could go up for a vote of deletion from the library so as to reduce clutter from inferior songs.

    During the orchestra session, players would be required to input properly timed commands with the typical WSAD layout. As there is always some latency, the system would have to be forgiving, not requiring perfection, but giving a window of opportunity during which time the correct command must be entered (1-2 seconds depending on the song's tempo). Entering the correct commands within the time allotted would produce quality sound from that instrument section. All sections playing in harmony would create the song.

    The conductor's timed input would directly affect the quality of the entire song, not just the quality of a single section.

    For all the hype about the music system when Mabi was first released, they certainly haven't given it much attention. A player-driven orchestra would be great, imo.
    Something like this? maybe?

    why isn't there an option for instrument upgrades that affect the effectiveness of magical music ;-;

    moving while playing would be awesome.

    magical music upgrades... walking while playing... (uncap of knowledge so i can grind to 1 with some sanity left zomg)... your orchesta and conductor idea looked good on paper(er, webpage? xD) and you did a neat job of explaining it.
    if only we could do something like slip this under the head developer's office door at devCat or Nexon or whoever it'd do the most good to have xD

    But yes, that's basically what I had in mind, only not so DDR-precise. System must be forgiving to compensate for latency.
