Free embedding, plus easier licensing signup

Posted by Adrian Holovaty on September 28, 2018

We’ve made three big changes to make it easier for people to learn about and try Soundslice Licensing.

As a reminder, Soundslice Licensing lets you embed our technology in your own website. Lots of great music education sites are using it, and it’s an important part of our business.

The three improvements are:

1. Self-serve signup

Until now, if you wanted to sign up for a Licensing plan, you had to email us — it was a manual process. Now, you can sign up on your own, without having to communicate with a human. :-)

Just head to your account settings page and click “Change” next to your plan, to access our “Change plan” page (direct link here). You’ll now be able to choose “Licensing” as one of the plans, hence immediately getting embedding access.

Of course, we’re more than happy to email or chat any time with customers who need some more guidance on how to best use Soundslice in their website — so don’t hesitate to contact us!

2. A free embed for everybody

Many customers who are considering Licensing ask us for the ability to test it before committing. We’re always happy to accommodate. And now we’ve formalized this by giving every Soundslice account a free embed!

Yes, everybody can embed one slice for free, regardless of your account type. This should give you a nice feel for how the embedding works. If you’re evaluating Soundslice for use on a music education site, feel free to use this to make a demo for your students/customers — we’re confident they’re going to love it.

To enable embedding for a slice, edit the slice and change its embed settings. If you’re not in our Licensing plan, you’ll be able to enable embedding for one slice at any given time.

3. A much nicer and more detailed Licensing page

We’ve completely redesigned our Licensing info page to be much more informative and better looking. There’s also a brand new, comprehensive FAQ.
