Here’s how to control bar numbering using the Soundslice editor.
By default, the first bar in your slice gets bar number 1, and so on. We do not display the bar number until the second system, and we only display it at the start of each system:
To change a bar’s number, select any note or rest in the bar, then:
You’ll see a simple screen that lets you enter the bar number.
If you’ve overridden a bar number, all subsequent bars will be labeled relative to your override — so you only need to override one bar. For example, if you change the first bar’s number to “9,” the second bar will automatically be labeled as bar 10, and so on, without you needing to override the subsequent bars.
If you’ve overridden a bar number, the number will always be displayed in notation. Otherwise, we only display bar numbers for the first bar in each stave.
You might also want to mark your bar as a pickup bar. See here for more info.
We don’t yet have a way to show a bar number for every bar — but this is on our to-do list.
