Here’s how to manage grace notes using the Soundslice editor.
Creating a grace note
- Add the note and make sure it’s selected.
- Click the “Toggle gracenote” icon in the editor sidebar’s “Note basics” panel , or search the editor for “Toggle gracenote.”
Creating a grace notes without a slash (appoggiatura)
To create a grace note without the diagonal slash through its stem, search the editor for “Toggle gracenote (no slash).” There is no icon for this in the sidebar, but it’s always accessible via search and you can assign a keyboard shortcut to it if you’d like.
Creating multiple beamed grace notes
This works the same as above. Just create multiple notes and convert them to grace notes. Soundslice will automatically group them into a beam.
Is it possible to have multiple grace notes without a beam?
No, we always create a beam when grace notes are together. This is something we might change in the future.
Is it possible to change the note spelling for a grace note?
Yes, you can generally edit a grace note’s notations just as you’d edit a non-grace note’s notations: change note spelling, add articulations, etc.
