Re: Sibelius fails to load

Hi Rob, if you don't want to use ASIO4ALL with Sibelius, but need to use it with Jamulus, make sure you untick the "Use virtual instruments" box. As to using NP. You may still be disappointed at the vocal sounds. NP's are still rather poor. To get decent sounds, you'd really have to purchase a dedic...

Re: Hairpin diminuendo property not saved to score

MIDI data is severely limited (at least in Sibelius) with regard to the settings for dynamics. There are 127 different numbers for dynamics, and Sib's table looks like this: fff - 127 ff - 113 f - 98 mf - 84 mp - 71 p - 61 pp - 39 ppp - 20 As you can see, it's not a logical set of numbers and it's n...

Re: Hairpin diminuendo property not saved to score

I can't say I'm surprised. The developers have been too busy futzing around with 'toys' to spend any time fixing real bugs.

I've just tried this and it doesn't happen for me. The changes still stay even after a complete shutdown and restart.

Re: Sibelius fails to load

Hi Rob, is there a reason you haven't installed the sib sounds or some other sound library?

Re: Using AirPods or headphones for playback

When you have started sibelius, have you gone to playback devices to make sure the airpods are selected? See the attached image. I know this is windows, but I believe the mac dialog is similar. If you have a choice of devices choose ASIO in preference to any other.

Re: Upload attachment?

Those numbers will not print. They are the measurements shown by the Objects rulers which must be ticked in the view tab of the ribbon. Untick it.

Re: Sibelius fails to load

Can you email me a copy of the plogue engine file? I'll take a look. Also, can you post screenshots of two of Sib's dialogs - Audio Engine Options and Playback Devices?

Re: Sibelius ultimate with M1 MacBook Pro

Despite explications to the contrary, I would always make sure any device I intended to use with sibelius was connected and properly paired before starting up the program. Sib 8.2 will NOT run properly on Big Sur or later. As you say, it will work up to a point. Latest version (the stupid iPad updat...

Re: Sibelius fails to load

Here's something to try. Go to C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Avid\Sibelius\PlogueEngine and open the log file. It may be a very long file. See if there is any entry that shows "failed". Is the sound card chip a Realtek or a Creative device by any chance? These are known to have issues in ...

There is a plugin for that "Convert folder of scores to MusicXML", which will do as you ask.

Re: Edit Live Tempo

Have you played around with the live tempo and live velocity? You can show and edit them above the notes using the buttons in the image.
