New: Auto-saved slice preferences

The Soundslice player gives you lots of control over the music you’re learning and practicing — like changing the speed, changing visual layout and much more. But until now, you would essentially “start from scratch” each time you loaded a slice or refreshed the page — meaning you’d need to reset various options.

Today, we’ve started to automatically save your current view preferences. If you’re logged in and have a paid Soundslice account, we will now auto-save the following:

This applies to any slice you view on our site, not just the slices you’ve created yourself. And you don’t have to do anything; saving happens automatically in the background.

Settings are auto-saved on a per-slice basis, and they’re independent of device. So if you view a slice on your tablet, change the speed, then view it on your laptop, your laptop will remember the speed setting you used on your tablet for that particular slice.

For more on auto-saved settings, see our new help page.

We’ve started with the three settings we thought would be the most useful, but we’d like to hear from you: which other settings would you like us to preserve across sessions?

We’re also considering global settings versus per-slice settings, but we’ve started with per-slice settings for now. In the future, it might make sense for certain settings to be global while other settings remain per-slice.

Note to our Licensing customers: this auto-saving currently does not apply to Soundslice embeds. It only applies to music viewed on proper.


This is great.
As for other things to preserve, I'd find remembering the bars I had selected quite useful. And in a few cases it would be nice to remember the transposition setting.
Makes sense. For the last selected bars have you tried "Saved loops"? —…
I have, and Saved loops are awesome :)
But it would be nice to just come back to the computer and continue where I left off yesterday without having to bother with a saved loop.
I can see that 👍 Thanks for the extra detail!
It's great to have speed, recordings and layout saved. However I always have to Zoom in to 200%, can you also save the zoom value please?
Could you give me some more details about why you’re always setting it to 200%? Are you showing it to students on a big screen? Or something else?
Great feature. Saves a lot of time. Thank you
This is great, but saving the Zoom level as well would be even better.
Out of interest are you usually trying to fit more notation on the screen or to make the notation bigger? Do you know what layout option you generally use? Zoom is one of the tricker ones so eager to understand the use case exactly 🙌

that would be amazing 😍
That’s definitely something we’d like to add though it's tricky to imagine how it could work with the embed, because Soundslice would need to store information about specific users of your website.

Just to note that it is possible to provide this for your customers using embed parameters —…. But it would require some development work which definitely isn’t an option for many people. If you need any more info get in touch at
That´s great! i need to save last Zoom if posible, because i have to Zoom in full any time i use any slice. :(
Keep playhead at top of screen. I personally don't like it so adding this setting to default options would be great.
Thank you Adrian! I can finally ditch my hacky userscripts.
Wonderful, it’s lot of time saved in front of my students and less repetitive task.

Could you do the same for : »keep the reading head at the left of the screen. »

Another idea: have automatic writing for do re mi fa sol la si do. The same as c d e f g a b.

Another idea: keep the reading at the center of the screen.
When I read the note it’s hard to anticipate note in normal view.
If I put the head at the left Sometime I’m too late ( when I slow down my tempo or if a student can’t play very well ).
It would be great if you could also save whether or not the metronome was turned on!
Thanks — that's on our to-do list!
