VIVA SIBELIUS!

I must just say that I've been using Sibelius for a while now, converting from Finale, and I am absolutely impressed/stunned by this software. Great thought and amazing programming has gone into making this software. I know this as there are so many times when I do something in Siblius and, being us...

Improved Explode

Hi, it will really help a lot if the explode plug-in can automatically select the consecutice staves for me based on the number of staves selected eg: In the first dialog I select "3" to explode to. In the second dialog I select "Trumpet 1" NOW the plug-in must select "Trumpet 2" and "Trumpet 3" for...

I installed Sibelius from the original cd's and installed the two updates. Pressing F1, clicking on the ? Button does nothing. I search my whole hard drive for the Re...

VST does not load

Hi, I can for the life in me not get Sib7 to load my edirol orchestral plugin into the device list. It used to work in the past but not anymore. I copied the Orchestral plugin folder into c:/Profram files/avid/vst plugins and clickrf "Rescan".I restart Sib7 and yet again only the Sibelius sounds are...

Hi andyg,

I totally agree! The cool thing about Sib7 is it's integration with a DAW (Pro Tools 9). I hope Avid will consider Cakewalk Sonar as well.

Regards... :)

Hi musikai, that is not to point. The point is that BOTH Finale AND Sibelius has the capability to CREATE good quality audio files. It just depends on the VST used. If sound is going to be your thing, get Notion (allthough it's scoring capabilities are found wanting). So, Sibelius and Finale is abou...

Sound comparison - Sibelius vs Finale

Hello my friends, I really don't want to spoil the mood on this forum as it is a place to discuss music issues regarding Sibelius. Having said that, I do feel compelled to mention this subject here as we have to give potential buyers a fair overview of Sibelius' capablilities. Sibelius's audio outpu...

Hi andyg, this feature is actually VERY helpful in finding wrong notes in an orchestral score. By using those two methods with the mouse makes it very easy to audition instruments staves in the efford to find the offending note. It happens many times that notes don't spell correctly or because of hi...

Finale Speedy

My MIDI keyboard is at work, so I was forced to make use of alphbetic note input today. I must confess that this method actually works better than Speedy Entry. Allow me to explain: There are four 8th notes: c e f c In Speedy one must: 1) first place the curosr on the c line 2) press the 4 button (c...

Hi andyg, it's been some time. I so wish that someone could create a good video tutorial on Sibelius' sound capabilities and soundset creation. Sort of "Sibelius Audio 101 - Everythink you need to know"

Scrubbing

Hi, I did ask this in the wish list but just want to be sure it's not actually included in Sib7. It will be absolutely great if a certain key can be pressed and the music plays (chord by chord) as the mouse is moved throught the score. So often I wish to audition the harmonies in my score so by keep...

1) It will be absolutely great if a certain key can be pressed and the music plays (chord by chord) as the mouse is moved throught the score. So often I wish to audition the harmonies in my score so by keeping my mouse over a beat in the bar, Sibelius must sustain that chord until I move the mouse t...

Nicely sequenced, and I'm not knocking what you've done, but the sounds, although good, are a bit static, especially the brass. We've moved on since then with more articulations and playing techniques in the sounds. I take it you've listened to the demos on the Garritan site? Anyway, congratulation...

Okay Jonathan, thanks for clearing that up. Unfortunately, experience has made me somewhat cynical and suspicious of motives. Hi I know this is a rather old post, but I strongly differ to those who downplay Edirol Orchestral. I've been using it for years and would like to hear GPO sound like this: ...
