Here’s a nice new feature for those of you using Soundslice to teach beginner musicians. You can now enable automatic display of pitch names directly above notation.
If you enable automatic pitch names, anybody viewing your slice will be able to toggle them via the “Show pitch names” checkbox in our player’s settings menu. Here’s what it looks like:
And here’s an example you can play with directly:
To enable automatic pitch names, edit your slice, open the slice details menu, go to the Teacher tab and set your preference:
You can specify whether the pitch names should be visible by default or whether the student can opt into them manually. By default, pitch names aren’t visible or toggleable.
Of course, if you make any changes to your music within our editor, the pitch names will instantly update. Everything’s automatic and in sync.
We’d been surprised to hear from teachers who had been adding pitch names to their music manually — a tedious and error-prone process. Sit back and let the computer do the work for you!
This feature is now available for anybody in the Teacher or Licensing plan. Enjoy!
