“Let ring” notation
Here’s how to notate “let ring” in tablature using the Soundslice editor.
Adding “let ring”
- Select a note. (It doesn’t matter if you select it within the tablature staff or the standard-notation staff.)
- Click the “Toggle let ring” icon in the editor sidebar’s “Tablature” menu , or search the editor for “Toggle let ring.” Or use a keyboard shortcut.
If multiple consecutive notes have “let ring” set, then Soundslice will draw a single “let ring” with a dashed line spanning all affected notes.
Removing “let ring”
- Select the note that has the “let ring.” (It doesn’t matter if you select it within the tablature staff or the standard-notation staff.)
- You’ll see the “let ring” icon in the current notations panel. Click that icon to remove the “let ring” notation.
How “let ring” affects playback
“Let ring” notation doesn’t affect synthetic playback at this time.
Why couldn’t I just use plain text to notate this?
You could indeed. But we recommend using the proper “let ring” function because our player will eventually be able to do interesting things with this knowledge — such as altering the synthetic playback, displaying the notes in the visual fretboard differently, etc.
