    Oh, yes, dear sweet Turbine, Tevye must have a fiddle/violin for when he's standing on top of the houses in Bree playing music for those walking by underneath... presuming it's still possible to jump up on the roofs with a horse -- I haven't logged in for about three years now. Still, though, if you brought in something like that to the store, and I heard about it, I'd log in just to buy it.
    2017: 6 levels and an instance! As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he joined the Smaug The Dragon raid. Then he asked for leadership, looted the chest, assigned himself the 1st age Arkenstone and mailed it to an alt (Bilbo's a VIP so can mail from anywhere). They did some PvMP and an Epic Battle, then he apologized and gave the Arkenstone back because it wasn't BoA. He kept the pony.

    The violin

    Before adding another instrument and do more unbalancing of music, I prefer strongly the patching of the last update.

    So please fix the music-system and then try to add new instruments. Not the other way around.

    That's ok, making computer reproductions of string instruments is super hard: http://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/...gs--audio-8765

    That being said, we could come really close to it, if you would flip the switch to allow violin as one of the midi instruments.

    "But the violin in the general midi bank is, well, it's not as great as a harp or piano or whatever."

    That's true. But we can make it better with the current abc music by adding grace notes, quick slides at +ppp+, etc. Just give the playerbase the tools and they'll eventually come up with super cool stuff.

    As a transcriber and composer of original songs, I see the violin as two instruments.
    It would be fantastic if somehow the notation would support the playing of both in one instrument.

    Fiddle - plucky, +0.5 to +1.5 octave vs the lute, a choppy/fast decay sample

    Viole - wind like, +1 to +2 octave vs the lute, a quick attack or ramp up to full sample volume, and a really long sustain vs the lute


    Add an octave to an instrument? Make it a TP or Mithril coin upgrade option.

    If turbine is suffering from layoffs. Mentarized it. HQ or WB would love the justification. Add some cosmetic instrument adornment options and voila.
    Tassles, inlaid colors, patterns, gemstones, metallic/mother of pearl adornments, glows...
    We get more music options, and get higher dev prority time with possibility of making money for them as green lit dev time.

    Hey boss? this might make money for us...?

    That could work. Go repost it in General and see if you can't get more traction.

    for all the reasons cited, plus, it is lore!! - the instruments Thorin and Co brought in to Bag End, and Pippin's song in the Prancing Pony.

    would love to play some wild Irish reels after a big boss takedown
