Slider tick rate is the rate at which slider ticks appear in sliders. For example, slider tick rate 1 means that slider ticks appears once per beat. However, as slider ticks do not appear in sliderheads and sliderends, some sliders do not contain any slider ticks. For example, a 1-beat slider does not contain any slider ticks with the slider tick rate set to 1. Typical slider tick rates include 1, 2 and 4. 3 is also available but is rarely used.
