Latest file for v1.19.3:
vsinstruments_1.2.7.zip 1-click install


Adds instruments to Vintage Story. These allow players to play ABC music files alone and together!

Features:

  • Currently 13 instruments available, including acoustic guitar, piano and drumkit
  • May play instruments using the player's view angle to change pitch
  • May also read .ABC files to play tunes
  • Play .ABC files alone, or together using a band system
  • While each player needs the mod to play the instruments, not all players need the ABC files to hear them!
  • May also craft a 'Music Block' to play your abc files at the click of a button, compatible with the band system

Future work (lots to do!):

  • Make animations for playing tunes
  • Bagpipes
  • Hurdy Gurdy
  • Keyboard playback

Installation:

  • Copy the mod into the mods folder, like any other mod
  • In your Vintage Story game directory (usually in C:\Program Files\Vintage Story):
    • Create a folder named 'abc'
    • Put your abc files into here!
    • You may use sub-directories, which makes sorting files easier

Usage:

Craft an instrument of your choice (recipes are available in the handbook)

Post v1.1.4:
  • Press F while holding an instrument to select the 'mode'
    • Mode 1: 'SemiTone Step' enables users to play notes depending on the player angle, in semitone steps
    • Mode 2:'Tone Step' is the same, but the note steps in tones
    • Mode 3: 'Fluid' is also the same, but does not step
    • Mode 'ABC': enables users to play ABC files
  • When in ABC mode, right click to bring up another interface to choose your ABC file to play
    • A band name may be given here for band play
    • If no ABC files are found, an error will be written in the chat window to help fix it.
Pre v1.1.4
  • Shift+right click while holding the instrument to choose the 'mode'
    • 'SemiTone Step' enables users to play notes depending on the player angle, in semitone steps
    • 'Tone Step' is the same, but the note steps in tones
    • 'Fluid' is also the same, but does not step
    • 'ABC' enables users to play ABC files
    • Enter a band name to synchronise playback with others (so long as your band name is the same!)
  • When in ABC mode, right click to bring up another interface to choose your ABC file to play
    • If no ABC files are found, an error will be written in the chat window to help fix it.

It says "ABC error: could not find folder at..."!

Unlike other mods, this mod looks in your game's installed directory for abc files that it can play. This way, if the mod needs to be updated, your tunes will remain untouched. You'll need to source your own abc files, there are plenty out on the web!

Where do I find .abc files?

If you follow the link above to the forum post, there are some example abc files in the downloads section.

Other than that, you can search for abc files, or make your own! I would recommend adding "Starbound" to your search, as the abc community for that game is huge. There are plenty of tutorials for converting MIDI files to abc as well, which will work with this mod.

What about making abc files available on my server?

Similarly to having abc files on your client, you can have abc files available to everyone who joins your server. In your server install directory, place your abcs in a folder "abc_server". You can put your abcs in subfolders just as normal, so you can make a subfolder for any groups you might have.

Notes:

This mod is still a work in progress. If you're a modder and would like to help in any way, drop me a message!

If you find an ABC file that cannot be played, an error will be displayed in the chat window. Please send the file along with the error over discord, so I can fix it.

💬 Xeredek, 1 day ago

Hey, hate to bother you but where do you put the ABC file if you're on linux? Someone in the comments found it at some point but it looks like the file structure has changed since then. thans in advance ^^

💬 Caervec, Apr 3rd at 4:39 PM

Unless I missed it and it's already in, a banjo would be awesome if added!
You've already got the acoustic guitar, just need that for the classic duel!

💬 GarethPG, Mar 30th at 1:27 AM

Hello! My friends and I are a bit lost. It appears that we can't make a trumpet and a saxophone by smithing for some reason. I don't know if it's a bug but we just can't figure this out. Handbook is also not helping, it only states to get them by smithing. Some help or explanation would be appreciated :D

💬 _Unknown, Feb 28th at 3:59 AM

Im not sure if anyone has run into the same issue or knows how to fix it, but when im playing a song with a long portion of silence the instrument starts up too early causing desync for the rest of the song. This is purely speculation but it seems like the instruments can only handle so many rests in a row before it is forced to move on to the next actual note

💬 Fayk, Feb 25th at 1:49 AM

While I am not the first to make this feature request, if there was any way to make at least some of the instruments playable in the off-hand that would be wonderful. It's fun to have some musical accompaniament while exploring, but I find it too easy to have some momentary interaction require me to interrupt and stop the song.

Great mod, regardless!

💬 ShamblerDK, Feb 18th at 8:18 PM

If you guys need ABC files, you can look throught the Lord Of The Rings Online communities, since that game also have a very extensive ABC band system.

💬 Grasp, Feb 12th at 5:48 PM

Just curious to know if it'd be theoretically possible to implement playing instruments with an actual MIDI controller? If not, what are the limitations that'd prevent it from being done? Thanks =)

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Feb 10th at 11:57 AM

I've gotten to the bottom of the crash (I think) and version 1.2.7 should be much more stable!

I'm looking into some animation programs that will hopefully make adding new instruments easier, stay tuned.

💬 Mohl, Feb 8th at 5:13 AM

In my quick testing, I'm finding that the trumpet crashes my game whenever I play any ABC files on it. Other instruments seem fine, though I'll have to test the rest of them.

💬 Hydromancerx, Feb 2nd at 5:56 PM

Quacksol

Could you add some more tribal instruments like ...

Conch
- Digeridoo
- Djembe Drum
- Marimba
- Ocarina
- Panpipes
- Rainstick

Thanks in advance!

💬 DJC00, Feb 2nd at 1:38 AM

I don't know if you're accepting requests/suggestions, but I'd really love to see a Cello in this mod!

💬 XurxoMF, Jan 27th at 7:37 PM

Working on 1.19 or update planed?

💬 Marlim, Jan 18th at 6:09 PM

Will this mod be updated to 1.19?

💬 ElegantChimp, Jan 17th at 10:27 PM

Just wanted to mention that I tested the current release of this mod (1.2.4) on the new release of 1.19.0 and everything seems to be working as expected, although I have not tested the band features. The only thing I thing I noticed (which might of been a 1.18 issue honestly) is that the music block has a error in the model, as you can see a hole in the back of the 'horn'.

On a seporate note, I love the mod and thanks for creating it. I do have a small request though. Would it be possible to add a config option to disable the music block entirely (or at least the ability to craft it), as I think this makes the resonator pointless.

💬 Ruyeex, Dec 21st 2023 at 2:29 PM

Quacksol but it doesn't help that the mod could have some benefit from being able to link to other music boxes without the need of other players which can be helpful for making orchestra.
But what I can find it to try to click as fast as possible to create thee music but the delays are the issue of the problem
Also what are the requirements to be a accepted model?
How to access the game's pitch bending?

💬 MrSavaS, Dec 19th 2023 at 9:40 AM

Hey! I love this mod. Didn't have so much laugh for a while. It's possible to add a song queue to music block?

💬 Falco, Dec 12th 2023 at 5:53 PM

I think the ABC files shouldn't be in the install directory, but rather in ModData next to the user mods directory.

💬 17_, Dec 11th 2023 at 11:15 PM

Would kill to have a carnyx as an instrument.

💬 DarkThoughts, Dec 8th 2023 at 5:04 PM

Anyone know what the correct path for the Flatpack version is?

Edit: Figured it out.

/home/****/.local/share/flatpak/app/at.vintagestory.VintageStory/x86_64/stable/3df066e8bee88afcadf08de99c924620183bec54a572fb4c78dca9e2c035542d/files/extra/vintagestory/abc/

💬 Ruyeex, Dec 8th 2023 at 3:26 AM

Pan Flute, Flute, Police Whistle and Ocarina as early instruments that were played by thousands of years
Shouldn't they being linked when they have the same band name?

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Nov 30th 2023 at 10:45 AM

Ruyeex You're more than welcome to look into how I've implemented each instrument in the source code, but essentially we need a model, a recipe and a sound file for the note 'a' for 8 octaves. I use the game's pitch bending to reach every other note.

What instrument do you have in mind?

As for playing instruments at the same time, either rope your friends in or use some music blocks, just assign each player the song/part you want to play.

💬 Ruyeex, Nov 14th 2023 at 2:09 PM

Is there a way to make our own instruments and share it with you?
Also a way to play all instruments at the same time? 

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Nov 14th 2023 at 11:11 AM

MIDI would be possible, but the main issue is that MIDI files usually contain all instruments of a song. Playing all channels with a single instrument is messy (especially when percussion is involved), and one player should be playing one instrument, really. Then there's dealing with instruments not implemented in the mod (especially synth nonsense), volumes, echo and duplicated channels. ABC makes things simpler by giving each instrument its own part to play.

I think the most viable thing moving forward is a MIDI converter and cleaner for use with this mod. I've use starbound composera lot, but that requires Starbound to be installed which isn't ideal. It's something I'll need to look into.

💬 Vari_Ares, Nov 14th 2023 at 5:17 AM

Quacksol Keep going !!! Do you have any ideas if you can change the system of the mod to work with midi (.mid) files instead of .abc ? Because there is WAY MORE midi files on internet (pretty every existing songs exist in midi but not abc...) because .abc are harder to work with ! 

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Nov 13th 2023 at 12:33 PM

Hi all, I've updated the mod to 1.18.15. There were a few API changes but nothing major.

Thanks for trying the mod out! There are a lot of things I want to implement in the future, but I have other priorities irl (as do we all!). I hope to come back soon.

💬 Ponchoandlefty, Oct 16th 2023 at 5:50 AM

Does this mod still work in version 1.18.15?

💬 Entity, Oct 15th 2023 at 11:14 AM

Love this mod, just wish that temporal storms didn't distort the audio to sound like a garbled mess because there's no better time to break out the instruments and play some music.

💬 IKira, Oct 7th 2023 at 6:26 PM

the mod's echo chamber caused some death crashing song in its radius

Had to delete the mod and re load the chunck to finally fix the crashing music, idk exactly how I caused that

💬 Vari_Ares, Sep 17th 2023 at 1:56 PM

Hi ! I really like this mod but the .abc kind of files are difficult to use and there is not a lot of way to download them ! Do you think it would be possible for you to use .mid (MIDI files) to replace .abc ? That would give us A LOT of more choices and it's easy to find and put in ! <3

💬 CptWater, Sep 12th 2023 at 12:44 PM

This is a awesome mod. I use this in singleplayer to give a little character to situations.

I have a suggestion, might be a stretch though. Would it be possible to add a pipe organ? I know the base game supports multi-block structures, but would it be possible to turn one of those into an instrument? Besides, I think a pipe organ would fit the general atmosphere of the base game.

I'm not a coder, modder, and/or anything similar so I don't know how hard that would be. I just thought it would be a cool suggestion.

👍

💬 JStarling3, Aug 28th 2023 at 4:59 PM

I have some abc files instaled but they dont play. it acts like I dont have any at all. am i supposed to have the file named something very specific? Or do I somehow have it in the wrong place? I followed the instructions so im not sure what i did wrong

💬 ATree, Jul 28th 2023 at 7:33 PM

This is a great mod man, good work!

If you want any suggestions I think it would be nice to be able to carry instruments in your off-hand and play them, I think that was a thing in starbound if I remember right. That way we could go do things while also playing instruments.
The implementation is really solid and fun to have; thanks for your contribution to the community Quacksol! :D

💬 DesertDragon, Jul 28th 2023 at 3:51 AM

I will not lie, I have been churning out ABC files recently, and going over multiple midi files... gonna post alot of things... I have one issue: I cant do black midi in its entirety sadly... 

on the plus side, if anyone has a beefier computer than mine, perhaps you can get it to work on alot better frames cause already the mod wont load the full version with all 6.2 million notes :P

💬 Buster, Jul 23rd 2023 at 4:37 AM

now, what i really need is a way to control the tempo, cause its stuck at 1 single tempo, and idk what it is at...

💬 Moon_Dew, Jul 20th 2023 at 6:50 AM

If the ocarina gets added in, someone please post some ABC files for Legend of Zelda songs.

💬 Nut_Torquer, Jul 6th 2023 at 4:01 AM

anyone know a good way to convert a Midi file to ABC that actually functions? I can't find shit.

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Jun 26th 2023 at 7:45 PM

SecretFoxfire I got a complaint about a year ago that the volume was too high, lol. Once I figure out reading JSON settings files, I'm planning on making the volumes modifiable.

💬 SecretFoxfire, Jun 25th 2023 at 8:18 PM

Is there any way to adjust the volume on the music? I had a great time playing music on my stream today but it was really quiet even with the game volume at max.

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Jun 15th 2023 at 9:46 AM

Hi PR1SMAT1C_GARD3N, when you try to play an instrument in abc mode, does it give an error message?

💬 PR1SMAT1C_GARD3N, Jun 9th 2023 at 6:20 AM

Hi! I'm trying to install a few abc files I made to test out the mod but I can't quite figure out what you mean my games "installed directory", mind elaborating a bit? I tried both Roaming and the games folder itself under Roaming and the VintagestoryData folder, but no dice

💬 Red_iKnight, Jun 2nd 2023 at 1:01 PM

Play instruments in a temporal storm for best results XD

 

💬 Ethonodon, May 28th 2023 at 5:03 PM

💬 Skortan, Jan 14th 2023 at 9:54 PM

Hi there,

I'm working on converting a series of MIDI files into band-compatible ABCs using the Maestro app, but i've encountered an issue: The drum selector on the drum kit maps completely wrong sound-wise, so if i were to set part of the drum channel as a high tom, for example, it might be played in-game as a rattle instead. Does anyone know how to work around it, or has any accurate mapping translators? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for trying my mod!

There's a gamebreaking server bug. If a player tries to connect while another player is playing instruments the client will crash for the palyer trying to connect.

Hi OmegaHaxors, if you create/find a MIDI of the song you like, you can convert each channel of that file to a separate abc file. Also, there should already be a tab for the instruments.

I'm getting really into the band system. How would I construct the ABC files so that each instrument in the band gets its own channel?
Also please make a creative tab for the various instruments. They're so hard to find in the menu.

I played "row row row your boats" on the steel drum and it sounded drunk af. 10/10 a masterpiece

💬 Hexedian, Nov 5th 2022 at 7:14 PM

You know what this mod needs? It needs a playable jug.

The game already has jugs. You just need to blow on it!

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Nov 5th 2022 at 11:57 AM

Hey Pabbley, could you send me the details, such as which versions of the mod/game you are using and the crash report?

💬 Pabbley, Oct 31st 2022 at 1:43 AM

Hey there! The harp crashs to desktop when I attempted to play it!

💬 RogueRaiden, Sep 5th 2022 at 4:13 PM

Yes, ground storage would be amazing!

💬 DanaCraluminum, Sep 5th 2022 at 11:04 AM

It would be great if you make instruments ground storable. Whether against wall or just as pumpkins. Here is the Ground Storage page from vanilla wiki that lists all of them.

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Sep 5th 2022 at 10:05 AM

HI everyone, the mod is updated for 1.17.2, and no longer crashes on opening UI.

💬 JaeSaber, Sep 5th 2022 at 4:46 AM

Needs and update, crashes when instrument UI opens

 

💬 OBEDIA, Aug 20th 2022 at 5:47 AM

Does this work with 16.5?

💬 Artor, Jun 1st 2022 at 8:30 AM

Hyped for animations and bagpipes.

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Feb 11th 2022 at 7:52 PM

Hi RogueRaiden, I'm sorry to say that the instruments are not placeable for the moment. They can however be placed on tool racks.

💬 RogueRaiden, Jan 30th 2022 at 4:40 PM

How do you place down the instruments?

💬 Cendar, Jan 19th 2022 at 4:34 AM

Hi! I made a french translation for your mod, feel free to add it if you want. 😊

fr.json - Instruments 1.1.1

💬 Vinter_Nacht, Oct 17th 2021 at 7:08 PM

Could you add the Shofar, craftable from a horn that drops from big horn sheep?

💬 Lyte, Aug 11th 2021 at 2:24 AM

i had a much older version , new version worked great!  Thanks !

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Aug 10th 2021 at 9:40 AM

I have found the culprit, but the issue has been fixed in version 1.0.8. I've just tested the file, and it works for me. Are you using the latest version?

💬 Lyte, Aug 9th 2021 at 3:27 AM

Quacksol , here is the Pastebin : Poker Face .abc file - Pastebin.com

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Aug 8th 2021 at 5:36 PM

I'm not too familliar with MIDI, right now there are no plans to integrate it to the mod. With abcs, each track of a MIDI file needs its own player, which works better with the game, at least in my opinion. But I would like to add keyboard playback at some point.

Lyte, could you send me the file, over pastebin?

💬 Lyte, Aug 5th 2021 at 5:54 PM

I used Maestro  MIDI to .abc  file converter and everytime i try to play the Converted File on an instrument, i get a "Error Parsing File, Char Index 205"  message.  Do you know how to fix this ?

💬 explorerbee, Aug 4th 2021 at 8:53 PM

Maybe this is a stupid question, but is it possible to add the ability to play MIDI files or the code won't allow it?

💬 JupiterSky, Jul 27th 2021 at 12:44 AM

I am wondering about live playing.

I'm not too deep into modding yet, so I am wondering about the feasibility of MIDI inputs or maybe using the keyboard to play the instruments.

💬 Eisenwulf, Jul 26th 2021 at 3:55 PM

Proposed instrument: the hurdy gurdy. 😃

💬 QuacksolAuthor, Jul 16th 2021 at 10:16 PM

Hi guys, instruments_1.0.8 has a client crashing mod, please update to 1.0.9 if you're playing multiplayer.

💬 Algernon, Apr 17th 2021 at 12:24 AM
💬 QuacksolAuthor, Apr 13th 2021 at 12:29 PM

The mod's available here now! I've also made a few fixes.

💬 l33tmaan, Apr 10th 2021 at 10:32 PM

Oh yeah, I even talked about this with someone recently. Oops!

💬 SingABrightSong, Apr 10th 2021 at 6:33 PM
  • Due to the amount of sound samples in the mod, it is not available on VSModDB, so follow the link in the homepage tab to the forums.

Someone forgot to read

💬 l33tmaan, Apr 10th 2021 at 3:33 PM

Someone forgot to upload the mod.

💬 Zloy_EdyardOS, Apr 10th 2021 at 9:57 AM

How to download?

💬 Rufkut, Apr 8th 2021 at 2:10 AM
