Here’s how to create triplets and tuplets using the Soundslice editor.
Triplets are the most common type of tuplet, but you can create any kind of tuplet in our editor — quintuplets, sextuplets, etc. Here’s how:
Here, enter the rhythmic ratio for your tuplet. Some common ratios are:
When you do this, the notes will remain. They’ll simply use their “normal” rhythmic durations instead of altered durations.
To create this kind of tuplet, use the same instructions as above: Create the notes, then select the first note and click the “Toggle tuplet starting at selection” icon . Soundslice will figure out the tuplet based on the notes you’ve entered.
Alas Soundslice doesn’t yet support nested tuplets. Generally it’s possible to recreate a nested tuplet as a (more complex) series of non-nested tuplets, though this can make the music harder to read. We’re planning to support nested tuplets in the future.
Alas Soundslice doesn’t yet support tuplets that cross a barline.
Soundslice calculates this automatically based on the notation. But you can influence it by changing the stem direction of the notes within the tuplet.
