What is mxTune
mxTune is created by rymor that adds musical instruments that allow you to play music in MML format.
This mod currently under development and is not recommended for modpacks at this time. If you are a MODPACK Author, please encourage your player base to send crash reports relating to mxTune. I can't fix things I don't know about.
This is a format already used in some popular online games so there are many tunes available or you can create your own. You can play solo or in groups of up to eight players.
If you experience a crash, PLEASE open an issue and include crash logs.
I've released a 1.7.10 version named mcJammer. It is the precursor to mxTune but it's very far behind in terms of features. There are no recipes for any of the items for the mcJammer version

Playing Music while in a Party (Jam Session)
The purpose of the group play is to ensure players are synchronized when they play. The leader initiates the start of the session, but before that can happen all the other members need to queue up their parts. The process is the same as playing solo: Place the music in the instrument inventory, then while holding the instrument right-click the air. While in a group as a non-leader your placard will turn green, but you will not begin to play. Once everyone is ready, the leader just starts to play the usual way and all the member start to play.
A basic party system was created that does not rely on the vanilla teams system. A party can have up to eight players. Members can be removed or promoted to leader. A member may leave at will. If a member dies or they leave the game they are ejected from the party automatically. Members of a party cannot sleep.
