Re: Piano by Tab-key (or arrow right), guitar by Midi-keyboard. Is it possible?

No idea, really. But, while Sibelius has some midi capabilities, I don't think it is midi based, and therefore not usable like other midi programs. Sounds to me like you want to be able use sounds in Sibelius triggered by your keyboard and/or your guitar. Not necessarily for note input. If it is for...

Re: Playback differences on two computers

Yup. The difference between a dedicated sound card, and onboard sound. In modern laptops, onboard sound is pretty good, though not as versatile. You might try it without Asio4all.

You might have to deal with Kontakt on this one.

Re: Video export fails

As I understand it, Catalina messes with all kinds of things. 32 bit apps being a major problem. I have no idea why video fails for you. It may be something that you have to wait for Apple to fix.

Re: Sound ID Only applying to one bar

Did you select the passage you wanted the change to take affect in? Or just that measure?

Re: Orchestral playback to accompany choir

Actually, my examples above, again depending on the tempo, sound like a roll and not individual hits.

Re: Sibelius wont open.

Or have Windows search your computer for "AvidLicenseControl.exe. Run the exe and you will see if Sibelius is indeed activated. You activation key is there also. I think I recall once having to deactivate it then reactivate it before it worked. By the way. nothing wrong with W8.1. Also, Sibelius sho...

I'm not following what you are trying to do. Post a screenshot of a page from the score.

Re: Orchestral playback to accompany choir

Pro-Tools is a DAW. For real players you probably want to use the Buzz Roll sign from the keypad. For playback only, it depends on the tempo of the piece. Buzz roll doesn't always sound good. I use the tremolo slashes over the note. Different number of tremolos for different tempos. Here are two pos...

Re: Orchestral playback to accompany choir

Also, you you can use the chamber orchestra setting in Sibelius if you want the sound of a smaller group. It's very true that the best results will be with a DAW. But not all of us can justify the expense. Or the time it take to figure it out. You'd be surprised at what can be done with Sibelius if ...

Re: Help please, no sound

I suspect that once you have installed the actual sound files that you won't have any problems. Where did you get the instructions that you followed?

I thought I heard that the updater was included in the newest full sounds download. In any event, it sounds like the full sound file was not downloaded by the OP.

Re: Help please, no sound

I hope you installed Sibelius and the sounds to their default locations. Some folks try to install the sounds to a different location or drive. Sometimes Sibelius finds them and sometimes not. Here's some things to check. You've probably already done most of them. These instructions are for V7.5, bu...

Re: Transpose guitar to sax? out of range notes?

Yes you can. But it depends on what format you have the guitar solo in. if it is an audio file, it's much harder. AudioScore might transcribe an audio file to notation, but I wouldn't count on it. Once the solo is in notation, add an appropriate sax staff. Copy and paste the guitar part into the sax...
