    I like this idea, but the only thing is that composing music in Minecraft doesn’t exactly belong in Minecraft.

    Dogez4Dayz if it's in Minecraft, it belongs in Minecraft.

    Besides, people already use note blocks and command blocks to compose music, I'm offering a simpler, yet more flexible way for players to express themselves.

    One thing you could do is record note blocks to a new music disk

    James Douglas this is basically using note blocks, MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.

    Would this include a way to record speech for narrating adventure maps or for fake cheering for a stadium?

    thats a great idea! ive always enjoyed making music with note blocks but the size, and how long it takes is a bit repetitive. your idea would allow more sounds to enter the game. i dont know if this is a problem for everyone or if its just me but there is nothing more annoying than tuning a note block and going one click too far. a minecraft midi would be so much less annoying. and if anyone is against this, then whats the difference between a minecraft midi and a book and quill. writers got their wish, now its time for musicians!!!

    That would be awesome! It would be pretty hard to kill a charged creeper though.

    Maybe also adding voices using text to speech, or even recording the actual voice of the player who made the disk

    Yeah, great idea! You should make a Bendy and the Ink Machine music disc; the item will look like a music disc with ink poured on top of it.

    I believe a better way of implementation would be to have a 'recorder' that records any sounds nearby, and then can play them back. Note blocks included. This would allow for, in a way, what you want, while simultaneously allowing for more variety. Imagine someone recording, say, an enderman, and then being able to play that sound whenever. Or maybe record a note block contraption. Whatever the case, the idea has merit.

    that doesnt just give use to the diamond block but also helps the music disk ideas circulating

    (ps4 player) i could do with some offline music disks as well (maybe some from the wargames soundtrack or spleef) also a block that extends the sound to the whole world like a speaker block

    like skeleton horses or music discs in general, these items are hard to obtain but you can still seek them out at anytime, it doesn't need to be an endgame feature but it should still be difficult to obtain. This would be a very complicated feature and take a a lot of time to add so I also feel it should be a more important feature, if not as many players can use it to their hearts content then what's the point of adding it?

    Yeah, incorporating speech and custom music recording ingame would be perfect for creating adventure maps for sure 100% support this idea it has my upvote!

    My idea from my post (Which got deleted for some reason.) was: You can use a grindstone to turn any music disc (Even custom ones.) into blank discs. When put into a recording thing, it will record all note block and jukebox sounds for a maximum of 6 minutes. (As the longest music disc currently in game is 5:45) You can take it out at any time, and it will only end up playing for however long you leave it in. If you leave it in past 6 minutes, it simply will remain in the recorder until taken out, and the extra time in the recorder won't affect the song. As I stated earlier in this very lengthy comment, it will only pick up the jukebox and note block sounds, and since they are tracked separately from the other in game sounds, it won't be too difficult to implement. When you take it out, a gui will open up, and you can name it. The inner rim can also can be dyed to any of the 16 colors. It would also be able to be copied the same way a book can. The reason this will be balanced, is that you still have to build the note block machine to be able to record the song in the first place.

    Aye, great idea. This is important to some music creators (like me) and it would be fun to be able to hear music other than the stuff on the original music discs. What about importing MIDI?

    shouldnt it maybe be crafted with an emerald instead?`

    i think emeralds dont have much of a use in crafting

    It would be cool if you could record your voice on the music disks

    This would be awesome along with Disk Copier Block Station. 
    The potential for players to build Music Shops/Discos/Store Music/ simplified elevator music /etc. On the servers would be real!

    I really agree, this would allow players to become even more creative with music. It would basically make music easier to compose as there is no longer a need to take up hundreds of blocks with noteblocks, but noteblocks would have to be used until you got to endgame, as you said.

    Could you also please go a bit more into depth about the MIDI? Would we be able to add layers for each instrument and maybe duplicate instruments (maybe these instruments are the blocks which we have to insert?). And how would we choose the note pitch and length?

     

    Edit: After reading through the comments, I agree an emerald could be an alternative. And maybe actually composing the song will take up a diamond/emerald and the respective block?

    Also, recording voices would not be such a great idea. On a private server with people you trust it may be alright, but people could really ruin it. People can be really horrible and allowing us to record voices would give them more oppurtunities to do so.
