Re: Merge into Page

We can't possibly do this without examining the actual file - NOT a picture of it.

Re: Kontakt sounds help please

Could that be for the metronome click? You can, I think, turn it off in Sibelius. Try this setting.

Re: Newly installed sibelius ultimate sound issues

Hi FranPaul. If your laptop had been a windows machine, you could have kept your old Sib 7. (Jus' sayin') So, as to your problem. Check that the upgrade (which I assume was from scratch) hasn't changed the setting for virtual instruments to "Common Instruments" rather than "All Instruments." As to t...

Re: How do I create synthesized/artificial sounds?

I think you should do some reading on DAWs and electronic music/sound engineering before you start messing around. It's important to understand why you use them and how they work. As I understand it, integration can be problematic as Sibelius' only route to integration is via a technology called Rew...

Re: Sibelius First: No more export to PDF or MusicXML??

I wouldn't hold my breath. One of the givens on Macs is that your software will become obsolete. If it isn't the 64bit version it will NOT run on Catalina - end of. I've just read up on it - no version of sib earlier than 2019.9 will work properly - or at all - on Catalina.

Re: Sibelius First: No more export to PDF or MusicXML??

Do you mean the older Sib First that you pay for and is now called Sibelius or the new version of Sib First that is free?

If the latter, you get what you pay for - and you pay for what you get.

If the former, make sure you have the correct tier activated.

Re: How to write chords for accordion?

What if you switch on 'Legacy chord symbols' in File -->Preferences-->Other. That should allow you to type in pretty much anything you want.

Re: How do I create synthesized/artificial sounds?

What you need is an appropriate sound library with a set of such sounds. They are all relatively expensive and will require a load of work to make them work in Sib. These kinds of things are far better handled by a DAW.

Re: Can't see all plugins

It would be very difficult for someone not at your computer to work out what you have done to 'lose' your plugins. Once they are installed, they are installed!

Re: Colliding lyrics

Sib is still quite poor at handling text of any kind. It's one of it's biggest disappointments for me.

However, have you tried selecting the bars and resetting note spacing? ([ctrl][shift]n)
Changing the note spacing rule for lyrics to a larger amount?

You may want to note this on the actual official Avid Sibelius forum. No avid employees - as far as I know - ever come here.

Re: Sibelius won't start

If it has been working well for a while and has suddenly stopped and there don't appear to be issues with the VSTs then the next port of call is a bad soundcard driver. make sure you sound card drivers are really up to date. Don't rely on Windows, it lies. Failing that, maybe delete the plogue engin...
