Moving notes are invincible enemies that appear in the original Rayman game, Rayman Junior and Rayman Designer. They slide on musical staves, patrolling on a certain area and regularly opening their mouth. Even though they can't be beaten, their small size and their basic behaviour makes them quite easy to dodge, provided Rayman isn't sliding too quickly, so that he doesn't get surprised.
In Rayman Designer, there are two types of notes, simply titled Note 1 and Note 2. The only difference between them is how they react to types on the map.

Mr Sax's notes
The first type looks exactly like moving notes, except that one hit is enough to throw them back to the sender. He can even blow three of them at a time. They can also be found on Rayman's way when he is pursued by Mr Sax: in this case, they float in the air, and punching them will send them at him.

The second type are round notes which explode in the air and free eight tiny invincible wrong notes in the shape of the first type. Mr Sax can blow two of them at the same time, making it much harder to dodge the outgoing tiny notes and prevent them dealing damage to Rayman.
Just as the regular notes correspond to quavers, this variety corresponds to the whole note or semibreve (as it bursts into 8 eighth notes).

The third type, called explosive notes, follow a curved trajectory and explode on the ground. They are the same shape as the second type.

Coloured notes are found throughout Band Land in the original Rayman game, Rayman Junior and Rayman Designer. They can't move and all Rayman can do is avoid them. They are much larger than the other types, except for the tiny ones that can be found in Rayman Junior.
In Rayman Designer, these types appear in the map editor.
