Soundslice is the most advanced music education software on the web. Here’s an overview of what you can do with it.
Our player shows you beautiful standard notation and tablature right in your web browser. No plugins or apps necessary. It works in any modern browser, including tablets and smartphones.
We believe you learn music better if you hear it while you read it — so Soundslice makes it easy to sync notation with real recordings. A slice can have multiple recordings — say, a rhythm/backing track vs. a lead track, or videos with multiple camera angles, or several different performances of the same piece.
Soundslice pioneered the concept of “responsive” notation — music that wraps to fit your screen. Unlike in a PDF, Soundslice’s zooming features are notation-aware. That means, if you make the slice bigger or smaller, we’ll intelligently fit just the right amount of music on each stave, re-rendering on the fly. This is possible because our music-engraving engine is tailor-made and runs entirely in your web browser.
With support for multiple instruments/staves, Soundslice can handle anything from a piano’s grand staff to a string quartet or a full jazz band’s arrangement. Click a track’s name to the left of its notation to access track-specific controls.
Our notation can be synced with videos, sourced from YouTube, Vimeo or any other video hosting service that allows access to its MP4s. You can also upload video directly to us.
Fretboard and keyboard
Are you more of a visual learner? Use our interactive keyboard and fretboard to see a graphical view of where notes should be played on your instrument.
In web browsers that support it, you can save slices for offline usage. This means you can come back to them even without an Internet connection. Read more about this feature here. Here’s a video demo:
There are many music notation file formats, and our long-term goal is to be able to read all of them. Currently Soundslice can import these formats:
