Using Un-implemented Instruments:
WHHHAAATTT!?!??!? THERE ARE MORE THAN THE 40 INSTRUMENTS THAT I CAN EASILY ACCESS ON ONLINE SEQUENCER!?!?!? Yes. Yes there are (unless you already knew that). This section will not just be for using un-implemented instruments, but also the specifics on what actually defines a note.

It's fairly easy to use un-implemented instruments, but they are a bit more limited than other instruments.
There are currently 8 un-implemented instruments:
• Church Organ (Dark Blue)
• Flute (Slightly Green-Tinted Beige, I guess)
• Pop Synth (Mint Green)
• Saxaphone (It's Probably Closest to Olive, I'd say)
• Synth Bass (Maybe a Paris Green?)
• 8-bit Drums (Like a Crimson, or Ruby Red?, range is G2-C3)
• 808 Drums (Brick red, range is D#2-G#3)
• 808 Bass (Black, range is G2-E4)

The limitations: Since these instruments aren't actually implemented yet, there are a few things that they cannot do (mostly because they aren't in the instrument settings dropdown menu (see below)):

It is also good to note that these limitations are to the best of my knowledge. These limitations might not actually exist, but if they don't, then I don't know it.
• You cannot place un-implemented instruments using the draw tool.
• There is no reverb or delay for un-implemented instruments.
• I've heard rumors that it's possible to change the volume of them, but I don't know how. If someone knows, please tell me!
• You cannot lock un-implemented instruments.

Because these limitations can make them a lot harder to use, many composers avoid using them. Use them at your own risk!

You can find them here: https://onlinesequencer.net/776827 and copy+paste the un-implemented instruments you want onto your sequence.

Now, sometimes the copying and pasting between sequences can be a bit finicky, and doesn't always work. That's where this next part comes in.

For example if you want to put in a flute, but you can't get the copy and paste to work, then copy this text below into a sequence (it has been color-coded for the purpose of explaining what each part represents): Online Sequencer:367468:0 B5 1 23;

The Yellow Section: tbh I have no idea what this does. For some reason it doesn't work for me without this.

The Red Section: This indicates the column that the instrument will appear in. 0 is the leftmost column. 1 is to the right of it. 2 is to the right of that, and so on. The picture below shows the ID's for some of the leftmost columns.

The Blue Section: This indicates the pitch of the note you want to place. The pitch typed corresponds to it's location on the playable keyboard part of the online sequencer sequence making page.

The Green Section: this section corresponds to the length of the note. Specifically, how many grid spaces it takes up.

The Orange Section: This section is the instrument's ID. Each instrument has its own ID. The ID's of the un-implemented instruments are below.
Church Organ: 28
Flute: 23
Pop Synth: 30
Saxaphone: 24
Synth Bass: 27
8-bit Drums: 39
808 Drums: 36
808 Bass: 37

This doesn't just work on un-implemented instruments, you can do the same for instruments already in use. In fact, this is the basis for the online (or offline) sequencer .txt files (what you get when you save a local file).

Links on Online Sequencer That Have Somehow Disappeared:
For one reason or another, these following links have all but disappeared from OS. However, some can provide some usefulness in OS. I'll post more as/if I find any.

Experiments Page (used to be to the right of the forums button) - https://onlinesequencer.net/experiments

Full Screen Mode (used to be to the left of the chat button) - https://onlinesequencer.net/app/sequence...ame=1&id=0

This link will let you see where the above buttons used to be - https://onlinesequencer.net/chat

Forums Search Engine - https://onlinesequencer.net/forum/search.php

Online Sequencer Calender - https://onlinesequencer.net/forum/calendar.php

And while this technically doesn't count:
Search Engine for everything in OS - https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=...d_joyvdpm4

Ok, I'm breaking the rule a bit hear, but somehow Jacob used his black magic admin powers to conjure up this link that tracks the entire development of OS, and every version still works somehow. Anyway here it is. https://web.archive.org/web/201301060935...er.net:80/

It's useful to note that the forums search engine has modifiers, so it could be more useful than the search engine for everything in OS. It's also specifically forums. So if you want to search for a forum, it would probably be more useful to use the forums search engine.

Ooh, and you found some candy.

Also, you can place the unimplemented notes with the draw tool, I made a code for that.

Lucent,
Because you still haven't made your Tutorial on OnlineSequencer, I made one:

I actually found out about some of these Links myself, when I stumbled upon Error Pages like
onlinesequencer.net/sosasees

Included are:
  • Full Screen View
  • Experiments
Not included are:
  • Search Engine for Forum on OnlineSequencer
  • Search Engine for Everything on OnlineSequencer

I would, but if I don't know what you're specifically stuck on then I can't really help you. The only useful part of the tutorial is pretty much the start-up guide that I'm pretty sure I labeled in big, bold letters.
