Create a tune for nxtBlock

Creating a tune file for nxtBlock is an interesting process. I would recommend knowing how to read sheet music and have some knowledge of music theory before trying to make your own tune this way.

1) Create a new plain text file (.txt) in a text editor (Notepad for Windows and TextEdit for Mac OS X)

2) The format for each note is: frequency|duration#.
When you are done, you should end up with something like the Fur Elise example below. 

Note: Using -1 for the frequency will act as a rest. Also, if you don't want to use note frequencies you can use the note name (e.g. A4, B#4) instead. With this method you will only be able to use A4-A6.

Fur Elise Tune Code:


3) Change the file's extension to '.sng'

4) Upload the file to your iDevice through iTunes. Place the file in the "Tunes" folder in nxtBlock.
