New Feature #3: New Audio Mixer and Transport Bar

Did you notice our new, sleek audio controls?

A streamlined transport bar and audio mixer are now available at the bottom of the screen in all of our ClassPlay Lyrics, Solfège, and Full Score Activities!

Our new horizontal volume sliders allow you to more easily:

  • Adjust the Volume

By simply clicking the MIXER button, located in the bottom left-hand corner, you can adjust the volume of the VOCALS and the background TRACKS!

Here’s what Quaver teacher Elizabeth Shewell from Western Reserve Elementary in Berlin Center, OH had to say about the new adjustable audio mixer:

I LOVE that you can adjust how loud the kids are on the accompaniment track! Now, as kids learn the song, you can wean them off, instead of just abruptly removing them. GREAT IDEA!!!!!

  • Move Around in the Song

If there is a certain section you want to focus on, with just a single click you can move to a specific point in the song and start singing!

  • Highlight Lyrics

Located on the transparent bar is the option to either HIGHLIGHT the lyrics or LOOP the track in any of our ClassPlay and Curriculum activities.
