    Hi Everyone,

    Unfortunately we did not finish the 3MLE package in time while the first closed beta test was still running for MapleStory 2 but at least it will now be available going forward. The 3MLE Download page has been updated to include a link for the MabiBeats version, and the MapleBeats Version.

    All of the instruments that show up on the in-game composer have been added to the instrument drop down list. In the coming weeks we will add the rest of the ensemble halls to MapleBeats (You can have up to 8 people in an Ensemble for MS2).

    Going forward, all previews generated in the MapleBeats section will now sound how it would sound in the game. We will not be retro-updating the previous previews to match.

    On another note, Welcome and Thank you to all of the new members who have joined us from the Maple Story 2 side. Our spike in traffic has been tremendous taking us from 900K hits a month to already 2.1 Million hits and this was just during the one week beta. We are looking forward to release and serving the needs of the global MS2 community when the time comes. We hope that 3MLE MapleBeats Edition will be useful to the music community, and we look forward to everyone's contributions to the Music Halls!

    Website Updates

    By 🌟Yasuno, in Announcement,

    Musical Nexus Main Banner

    Hi All,

    It has been some time since we have had a website update, our license expired a while back for the software behind the site so we were not able to update for some time. Thanks to those of you that do not use ad-block on our site we were finally able to meet the minimum requirement for a pay-out from the ads. We used the ad money to renew our license and then upgrade the website. I also ported over the dark skin I have been working on.

    There are a few other goodies available now that came with the update and the theme refresh, I will touch on them below via spoiler tags so the page does not get dragged out.




    There is now a leaderboard function on the site that can be found in the top menu. It automatically updates over time as stats change with users.





    As can be seen in the image below, we now get to use reactions for forum posts and content in the databases instead of only an up-vote. I have tried to add a decent array of things to choose from.




    Profile Backgrounds & Youtube Videos


    This is pretty self-explanatory, however you now have the ability to have a custom background for your forum profile. Also we have replaced the MP3 music player, with one that can embed Youtube videos. For an example see my profile here, or the Archive Librarian's profile.



    Changes to Group Icons


    In order to reduce the over-all image page load we have switched groups that used to have image icons (Such as Verified Composers) to use Unicode Emoticons. These are web-standard emotes built into all (current version) browsers and also works on mobile. The design may differ slightly from device to device, but it will always be supported.



    Solo Music Hall Changes


    The Solo Music Hall has been updated to follow the same structure as the other existing Music Hall's. There is no longer a copy MML to clipboard button in solo hall, and instead of there being 3 tracks on the page it is now only the MML code, like the other Music Halls.




    There have been many other slight changes throughout the board over-all since the theme was completely re-done but here are some specific things that are no longer enabled/available at this time.


    No custom background selector for the site like previous skin version. (Might add back later)
    No Light theme available. (This will be added later)
    Signatures are no longer enabled in order to keep the post sections clean.



    Hi All,

    Our version of 3MLE has been updated to Version 4, which along other things brings it in tune/line with the Music Q patch. Massive thanks to @Blargel for updating it this time for us. You can find the new version on the download page here, The filesize is smaller than before (148mb instead of 366mb) but you will need winrar, or something that can extract .rar files to open it. Reveal the spoiler contents below to see the change log, or view the change log on the download page itself.


    - Old Instruments have been updated to reflect Music Q Patch
    - Tuned Instruments Added: Flute, Whistle, Violin and Cello
    - Electric Guitar, Violin and Cello sound have changed:
            - The distortion effect no longer sounds awkward for guitar
           -  Violin and Cello sounds cut off earlier than before (Same goes for Tuned Versions)
    - Harp no longer needs to go to o0 as all the sounds have been shifted up 1 octave, so o0 -> o1 -> o2, etc.
    - Bass Drum's o2 d+ is no longer a different drum sound.





    Hi all,

    As promised in the last news post the Showcase Hall is now available, please note that this music hall works a bit different from the other ones! I have made a very short, but precise FAQ below.



    Q. Why can't i see any MML Code?

    A. The Showcase Hall is for being able to preview a song only. Usually this is for composers who have made some fantastic music, but do not wish to share the code with others in-game (but still let people listen to it, and review it). Also, sometimes a song may be an impossible play rank still, but they wish to get early feedback, etc.


    Q. How come there are no ranks posted?

    A. The showcase hall is for previewing the music only, since there is no public MML code there is no point in showing the play rank.


    Public Discord

    We now have a public discord for our communities, we recently moved our staff chat from Slack to Discord. It made sense for the next step for it to be available to all of the community. Currently there are only a few channels, however as/if it grows we will continue to make more room with new channels.
