I found these undecuplets (11-tuplets) and duovigenuplets (22-tuplets) in Chopin's Nocturne in B-flat minor, Opus 9, Number 1:

Extract of Chopin's Nocturne, showing 11-tuplets and 22-tuplets

I want to use such tuplets in my own music. How can I write them in Noteflight?


1 Answer 1


Noteflight doesn't offer anything more than septuplets. There are several requests for more in the Noteflight feedback forum.

A work-around would be to split the tuplet up. Probably almost nobody can accurately play 22 notes over a whole measure.

  • Chopin can know to play 22 notes in a whole measure.

  • 11 is a prime number. 22 is divisible by 2, but if you try to put a dotted whole note in Noteflight and then add a duplet, Noteflight will show a message saying that it can be divided into 2 dotted half notes without a tuplet. 22 is divisible by 11 but 11 is a prime number.

  • @Vighnesh Two sextuplets and two quintuplets would give you 22.

  • 3
    @Vighnesh A sextuplet and a quintuplet. The alternative is to buy a professional notation program.
