-Updates and Info-
-Brought tabs back in a easier, more fashionable way. Plus some minor changes on note-length. Read about tabs in the instructions. (2-1-17)
-Extended the staff upwards to include more notes, plus visual update to the interface. Tempo now changes the length of the notes as well to match the tempo. (1-31-17)
-The clef now moves out of the way so you have more room to work on your project. (1-30-17)

-Eraser icon update, modify disabled while eraser is active, and some interface bug-fixes regarding layering. (5/7/16)
-New Sample Song
-Added Loop Button!! Also some quality improvements here and there with how the song plays/pauses.
-Changed "Tempo" to "Speed", and bigger numbers make the song faster instead of slower.
-Orange measures now have a # at the top. I made 60 costumes before finding out I only needed 29.
-Play animation works a ton better now. I also added more clarity on what tempo does.
-Fixed a bug where notes were giving unwanted sounds. These now show up as "failed notes" and are deleted shortly after being placed.
-Added a really cool animation around the play button when you play your song. This also measures the length of your remaining song.
-Removed tabs because they were confusing. They might come back later and improved.
-Added Speed of Sound by Coldplay into the sample list.. This song was a pain to make on here so it sounds far from perfect. Clocks ended up a lot better.
-The orange lines now start at the beginning, and I got rid of some annoying grey ones.
-The brightness of the note is now effected by the octave. The lower the octave, the darker the note. The higher the octave, the brighter the note. (Edit: This feature has been removed)
-Added an indicator (black box) to show the key of whatever note you are about to place. A tempo button is still there to switch back to the tempo changer.
-New design on the modify panel and text to help you know what does what.
-Sharps/Flats added! Click "S" to change your current note from normal to sharp to flat.
-Added Clocks by Coldplay into the sample song list. Just click "sample" then type "4"
-Click "Load" and type "Pikmin" for a Pikmin themed background.
