Here are various improvements we’ve made to Soundslice over the last month or so.
New “Add recording” screen
We redesigned our editor’s “Add recording” screen. It now has a nicer design and gives more appropriate weight/context for the various options.
New sidebar toggle design
We redesigned the little arrow button that lets you toggle the sidebar when viewing a slice. Previously, when the sidebar was closed, the arrow would jump all the way to the bottom of the page. Now it’s in a more consistent and obvious location.
Clickable instrument names
Those instrument names at the left of your music? They’re now clickable. If you click them, we’ll open the Settings menu and highlight where you can change visibility.
Better default beaming
We changed our default beaming for 4/4 time. Previously, beams would break on each beat; now they only break at the middle of the bar. Thanks to YouTube sensation Rick Beato for the suggestion.
Grace notes without slashes
Our editor now lets you create grace notes that don’t have a slash through their stem (appoggiaturas). Previously we only supported grace notes with a slash. We’ve also improved our MusicXML importer to detect this for all files uploaded from now on.
Use our handy editor search to find this feature.
Descriptions in course slices
When viewing a slice in a course, we now display the slice’s description (if available) in the left sidebar. Previously the description was only displayed on the main course page. It’s much nicer to have access to that when viewing the slice!
