Exporting your slices

Soundslice can export slices in two formats: MusicXML and Guitar Pro (GPX). Here’s information on how to export.

Exporting is reserved for customers with a paid plan.

Exporting as MusicXML

To export a slice as MusicXML:

  1. Go to your slice manager (the page that lists your slices).
  2. Find the slice you want to export, and click the “...” icon at the far right.
  3. Choose “Export MusicXML.”

    Your web browser will prompt you to save a file to your computer. That’s it.

    Exporting as GPX

    To export a slice in the GPX format (as used by Guitar Pro):

    1. Go to your slice manager (the page that lists your slices).
    2. Find the slice you want to export, and click the “...” icon at the far right.
    3. Choose “Export GPX.”
    4. Screenshot

      Your web browser will prompt you to save a file to your computer. That’s it.

      I clicked the “...” button on the slice list but don’t see any export options — why not?

      We only display them if your slice has notation. You won’t see these options if you’ve just now created a slice (and haven’t given it notation yet). See the notation editor quick start.

      Which format is better?

      Totally depends on your workflow and needs. But MusicXML is much more widely applicable; it’s an open standard, and basically any modern music-notation application supports it. GPX is a proprietary format that’s only readable by certain programs.

      What if I can’t open the resulting exported file?

      Get in touch. Send us the URL of your slice, which export type you used, and which program you tried to open it in. There are lots of moving parts in this type of situation, but we’re usually able to figure things out.
