    Oh boy, it's going to be a little hard to make the drums sound good for me. Did they say when they'r going to add the instrument into the game?

    Staff Applications

    Hi all, Me and Couch are looking for some SSR's (Song Submission Review Team) to help us keep up with the approval queue. Now that full release for MapleStory 2 is coming we expect it to pick up even more. The queue is already usually at 60+ so if you are not able to give to much time to this role please do not apply at this time. There is not a "quota" but you should be able to spend a few hours a week total on helping us approve music submissions. The SSR role is split between Mabinogi Only, and MapleStory 2 only. This is all volunteer work obviously, but you will get a pretty color / rank in Discord and on the site. You can apply here if you are interested in helping us out: Apply Here *Note: The applications are private, only me and couch will be able to see your application submission. View full article

    Website Updates

    Hi all, We have done some website updates over yesterday and I just wanted to touch on them here. These are mainly back end, and underlying software updates so if this kind of talk makes your eyes glaze over I will understand if you skip the announcement. ? The Elephant in the room - Advertisements As the expression is told, lets go ahead and get the elephant in the room out of the way. Yes, we have enabled ads however we have tried to make sure that they are non-intrusive. No pop up, or pop under ads will happen, and we tried to make sure all of the ad placement was in a way to prevent accidental clicking and also not ruin the flow of content. The ads help us do things like: Renew our licensing for the website software, pay our server and bandwidth bills (Our bandwidth increased by 300% during the MapleStory 2 closed beta test), as well as work with developers for custom additions to the site or to buy existing add-ons. We may consider an optional donation option for those of you would rather donate than see ads. We know a lot of people use an ad blocker of some kind. But if you are feeling nice every once in a while and want to turn off your ad blocker for a few page visits we would really appreciate it. Backend Changes Redis Caching (Not Reddit) Improved caching on the site has been enabled with a Redis server. Before we were not actually using any server-side caching and instead relying on Cloudflare to do as much heavy lifting as possible and it definitely did a lot of heavy lifting for us. It served over 2.5 million requests from its edge servers, and saved us about 100 GB of bandwidth on 1 TB of bandwidth spent which is good considering a chunk of our bandwidth is actually .mp3 previews with Cloudflare does not cache natively. The Redis cache engine will help take some of the load off of the MySQL database and the over-all web server by caching page output, searches and tags for guest users. Improved Search with Elastic Search Some of you might have noticed while using the site yesterday that for a brief period of time search didn't work, and all of the activity feed disappeared. This was me fumbling through an Elastic Search server set-up and then re-indexing all of the content to the new Elastic Search cluster and shards. Before, search was using the MySQL database directly this can put a huge strain on the database as it is having to support normal website use plus searching through thousands of rows of data for multiple users. By offloading the search system to the Elastic Search cluster it will speed up performance in general for searching but also provide better search results. It will now weight search results based on keywords and other factors. You should see improved search results going forward, and they should improve over time as well. It will search the entire index based on your keywords and then pull out 10,000 rows of data and compare them to your keywords and other factors to try to provide better results. It does all of this within a second or so basically. Search has been made more clear in general as well, before it was kind of a "Am I searching the entire website? Just this submission? Just this category?" Now when you begin a search a pop up window specifically says if you are searching every where, or just in a specific section. Improved Login & Account Security Options We have added support for faster login and improved account security options. Now when logging in, or registering you can choose to use one of the external providers instead of just filling out all of the information manually on the login or registration form. You can choose to login or register with the following providers: Facebook Google Microsoft Twitter 2-Factor Authentication - We have also added the ability to enable 2-Factor Authentication in your account settings. You can use the following options to add extra login security to your account: Security Questions & Answers Google Authenticator Authy Multiple System Languages now Supported We have added language packs back to the site! You can find the drop down selector on the left hand side of where the menu is at the top, Or at the very bottom. We already have 10 languages supported, with Chinese (Traditional and Simplified) on the way. In the future we hope to support Korean and Japanese as well since we get a decent amount of traffic from those countries already. Please note, this only translates system text, if the post is written in English that will still be in English. Phone Style Emoticons now supported When clicking on the emote button in the editor now, it will have options to choose a skin tone, search and look through categories just like on a phone or tablet. Coming Soon We have the following releases / changes coming up which will be available in a separate news post as this one is already very long. A "Light" version of our theme for users who do not like the constant dark mode. Adding the 3 - 8 person ensembles to the Maple Beats section News on how we are currently using the source from Mabilcco to modify it to support code editing, 10 tracks per part, and more.

    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! - Yasuno View full article

    Website Updates

    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. Leaderboard Reactions Profile Backgrounds & Youtube Videos Changes to Group Icons Solo Music Hall Changes 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.

    I agree, it needs to be developed more, we cant forgo the important access to the MML code. Also some of the extra/new features that were discussed at some point, would be nice to be added.

    That sounds cool and all, but it feels less consistent overall. I, too, would like to have another, more precise way of editing the MML. But at least we have somewhere to start.

    Hmm... Being able to play a song from a keyboard straight into the program? For example, there are a couple of songs I know on the piano that i'd like to make MMLs out of but I don't want to go through the trouble of handwriting it. So maybe if you have a keyboard that you can plug into your computer, than you should be able to play the song on your keyboard and have it read on the program.

    Community Goal: New Composer Program

    I'd appreciate this too. It's so nice to be able to extend a note without everything else moving with it. Only issue I see is they'd have to make sure that it extends in increments (64s?), that way you don't end up getting ridiculous numbers like e4.&e17.&e37, etc. Another feature I'd like to see that's also in Vocaloid is just being able to draw things on with your cursor. Or select a large area and easily be able to move it up or down or sideways. Honestly though, I'd be okay with just 3MLE + more tracks. I'm just excited to be able to maybe finally complete one song I have that has over 50 tracks (which is going to be majorly reduced, but it's hard when I can't even play them all at the same time to see how they work.

    you know what'd be very cool? if the new program composed like how Vocaloid softwares work(which is basicly click the note and drag to the length you want) XOXOXOXO!!!! thatd be AWSOMESSSAASASA

    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. View full article

    Hi all, it's been a while since we had a post first i just want to post about some site updates we have done for the music halls.. Site Updates - All music halls have finished being brought in line with the new skin color scheme.. - Instrument Icons re-done, cleaner font, correct color scheme - Rank & Part images re-done, same as above - Music Player colors updated to new site scheme - MML To Clipboard button colors and font updated to new scheme - Author Comment boxes updated to match new color scheme - Font colors inside the code boxes updated for color scheme - Updated the Microphone option in the instrument list to have a Male & Female Option to better distinct them - Added a "Fantastic Chorus" option to the solo hall. When one of the options are selected it will show a banner like in the picture below to give notice to users that this song sounds better with fantastic chorus. A male, female and then a (M) & (F) option are available. An example picture is below for when both male and female is selected Scheduled Downtime Coming up we will be having scheduled down time. During this time we will actually be moving all of our sites to a new server cluster. We will be leaving our shared host we are on currently, to our own VPS cluster to better facilitate the needs of our site. And to also fix the latency and time out problems we have been experiencing for a few months now. We have tried working with our host on this issue, but they refuse to acknowledge the problem is on their end (hint, it is. Their MySQL Back End servers are over loaded, and causing the time outs). Because they still have no fixed it even after 2 months we will be making the move to our own. Doing so will enable us to do the following.. - Transition to PHP7 (Performance Increase) - Transition from MySQL to MariaDB (Performance Increase) - Enable Op, and MemCaching (Performance Increase) - Switch from Apache to Nginx (Performance Increase) - More Hard Drive Space - Dedicated 2GB Network Lines The move will take some time, as MabiBeats alone is about 15GB, and the host is capping our backup file download speeds from the server. I do not have an exact date and time for the start of the down time as of yet. But i will keep you all posted! View full article

    Is it still giving you this problem? I thought i fixed it last night, if you have an account here on MabiBeats already, then use the same info to login. You do not need to register again because your info is already in this database.

    Hello everyone! Would like to apologize for the unexpected downtime and maintenance mode. We ran an upgrade on our community to take us to the latest software version from Invision Power and the upgrade process timed out when running on the database which resulted in it breaking the upgrade, and our main installation. There was a problem with the database server, it stopped accepting new writes of data entirely it seemed but once that was resolved, i then had to work with IPB to get the installation to continue and fix itself from being broken. All is resolved now, if you see anything odd please let me know. Happy Barding! View full article

    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. F.A.Q 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.

    Just putting it out there, but the strict signature rules are for preventing people from having humongous signatures. It is technically possible to still make a giant signature just by putting a large font size or a large amount of text, but I'm hoping no one is stupid enough to do that and force me to start issuing warnings. Also, the option to view other people's signatures is off by default. If you wish to turn it on, it is in your account settings in the Signature tab.
