In MapleStory 2, players can play music using in-game instruments, either improvising with a keyboard interface or creating their own songs via Music Sheets using Music Macro Language (MML). There are many instruments with different rarities, which affect the visual display and number of tracks able to be played consecutively.
Players can form a party and play in an ensemble together. By clicking on the "Ensemble" option in the instrument window, right-clicking the sheet in the inventory, and clicking the "Join Ensemble" button in the instrument window, a party member can participate. The party leader is able to start the ensemble with the "Play with Ensemble" button.
