Re: One question for a possible upgrader.

They are too busy making it compatible with ipads. Major bugs like this are no longer being fixed. As soon as I've got enough free time, I'm going to get Dorico into my head and abandon Sib for good, after nearly 30 years!

Re: Treble clef printing

Can you not force Sib to use a different printer driver? What happens if you set the system default driver to a PS or native driver? If you think this is Airprint, then report it to Apple.

Re: printout treble clef is blobbed

I have no idea why this happens, but it only happens with Macs. The only solution I have seen is to make a pdf first and then print that. This bug was created in 7.1.5, then was fixed for a couple of versions, but then returned in the next version and has not been fixed to date. It appears to affect...

Re: Treble clef printing

IIRC, this issue emerged some time ago as a Mac font issue.

Maybe this will help? https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpce ... me=#756515

Re: Sibelius Ultimate

OK, let's start off with a clear fact - Sibelius cannot change the rhythm or pitch of any notes in your score without your intervention. It does not have any autonomic functions! The only things that it can change are the graphical positions of barlines, staves and text/graphics on the page as part ...

Re: Can I have another VST process the output of a Kontakt Instrument inside Sibelius?

No, there are plugins to do this. "Export Each Instrument as MIDI" and "Export each Staff as Audio". Depending on your version of Sib, these should be available through File-->Plug-ins-->Install plugin or through the plugin website here: https://www.sibelius.com/download/plugins/index.html

Re: Can I have another VST process the output of a Kontakt Instrument inside Sibelius?

Yes, I think ReWire is the way to go. Couldn't you just export the midi tracks or audio tracks as stems and import those into your DAW?

In a word, no. Sibelius does not have any of the capabilities of a DAW, beyond the most absolutely basic ones.

Re: bug after changing settings reverb in Play

As we are apparently not sharing the same language, could you please describe what actually happens? "Sib bugs" conveys absolutely nothing. Does the sound burble or glitch? Do you get error messages? Do you get the wrong sounds playing? Does the sound peak/clip? Something else? What is your OS?What ...

Re: All of the sudden NO SOUND

If you are running 7.x on any recent Mac, you are very lucky to have got it working. Mac users seem particularly prone to just letting their machines go to sleep or hibernate with Sibelius open. This has always been a very bad idea. Sibelius (particulalry older versions like 7 or earlier) are very b...

Re: Beaming 32nd note triplets

You can subdivide the beams using the button on the top row of keypad 3. I thought there was a way to specify these in engraving rules, but it only seems to apply to non-triplet notes. You could try asking this question on the official forum where there might be a better method than the one I used h...

Re: Sibelius Player/Sounds in Ultimate

You do not have sibelius sounds installed. AFAIK, the trial version does come with a (limited) soundset - like the one for the free version. It is a separate download. Look for it in your MyAvid account. Personally, I prefer NotePerformer. It is far from perfect, but it is much, much better than Sib...
