New: Auto-saved slice preferences
May 12, 2022 · 17 comments
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:
- Your current speed setting
- Your currently selected recording (or synthetic playback)
- Your current layout (Paged, Fluid, Horizontal, etc.)
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 soundslice.com proper.
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.
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.
that would be amazing 😍
Just to note that it is possible to provide this for your customers using embed parameters — www.soundslice.com/help…. 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 email@example.com.
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 ).
