Instrument appearance

In Soundslice, you can hide the parts of notation and tablature that you don’t want to see.

Say you’re looking at four-part choral music, and you only want to see the part of the music that you’re learning. Or maybe you’re looking at a guitar transcription, but you read tab, not standard notation. In either case, you can focus your practice by hiding the parts that you don’t want to see.


The following options can be changed on a per-instrument basis:

  • Notation
  • Tablature
  • Chords
  • Lyrics
  • Fingerings

You’ll find the “Instrument appearance” options in the player’s settings menu. (Gear icon in the lower right.) Each instrument has its own settings that you can toggle on and off.


Soloing individual instruments

Each instrument has a “Solo” button — a quick shortcut that hides the notation of all other instruments. See how this chamber group notation gets much easier to read for the viola player with the use of the solo button.

Can I solo multiple instruments at the same time?


Are my instrument appearance changes permanent?

No. If you refresh the page, the instruments will return to their default appearance. The owner of a slice can change its default appearance settings by editing the instrument.
