Transposing

Whether you’re learning music that was written for a different instrument, or you’re challenging your knowledge of a piece with a new key signature, you can easily transpose music in Soundslice. Just tap the gear icon in the lower right and click and drag the “Transposition” slider.

Will chord diagrams change to reflect the new transposition?

You bet!

Will tablature change to reflect the new transposition?

Yes! Caveats apply, though. We try to keep things relatively playable, but it might result in difficult (or unplayable) fingering.

If I change the transposition of a slice, will it remember my setting the next time I load it?

No. A slice will always start in its original key signature.

How far can I transpose?

You can transpose one octave in either direction (up or down).

I’m creating music in Soundslice. How can I set instrument transposition, such as for clarinet?

See our separate page here for information on working with transposing instruments.

How can I restore the music to its default transposition?

Move the transposition slider back to the center.

Is it true that musicians used to do this laboriously by hand?

Yes. Can you believe it?
