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, find the slice in the slice manager and hover over its title, then click the “...” icon. Choose “Export MusicXML.”

Exporting as GPX

To export a slice in the GPX format (as used by Guitar Pro), find the slice in the slice manager and hover over its title, then click the “...” icon. Choose “Export GPX.”

Why don’t I see the export options?

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).

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.
