New Soundslice player API

One of the benefits of creating interactive sheet music with Soundslice is the ability to embed it in your own web site. Today we’re announcing an API that lets you control and customize the Soundslice player when it’s embedded in your site.

The API lets you toggle playback, change audio speed, change audio sources and a few other things — all using JavaScript. We also have several URL parameters that let you customize the player without needing to know JavaScript — for example, changing the notation’s zoom level, hiding tab/notation or displaying the interactive fretboard by default.

A few of our partners and soon-to-be partners have already been kicking the tires on the API, and the feedback has been great.

Full documentation is here. Note that we plan to expand this over time to include more ways for you to customize and control the player. If you have specific needs, contact us any time.
