Re: Electric bass part is sending midi data one octave below to Logic

I would probably do the 8ve up in Sibelius, rather than logic (either edit the existing definition or create a new instrument). That's the start of the issue.

Re: Electric bass part is sending midi data one octave below to Logic

IIRC, Sibelius' Bass guitar instruments are set to play the written notes an 8ve lower than written. If this is going wroing try changing the instrument definition to play an 8ve higher.

Re: Music notation and Text in one Document

I'd use the first method that Mike suggested. It is a bit faffy and there is the usual learning curve to be ridden, but you can eventually get good results that way. I did so for my teaching diploma thesis. Not quite a book, but not far off! Doing things in Sibelius only really works if the text se...

Re: Is there a way to sync the playback line with the metronome?

AFAIK, there isn't. You might be able to get workarounds from the official Sibelius website: https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpce ... &groupid=3

Re: Music notation and Text in one Document

AFAIK, there are a few ways to go about this, depending on whether you have more text than music or specific needs. For example, if you have pages of text with no music interspersed with pages with musical examples; or if you want to have musical examples and text on the same page. If the former, yo...

Re: PLAYBACK NOT WORKING

Gosh, I'm afraid that I don't even know the answers to some of things you mention here! I am a musician not a tech wiz!

Re: Text Input Problem

Cheaper than buying sibelius ultimate might be to get a PC. Windows 11 still happily runs Sib 6.2 and 7.5 as well as the later versions.

Re: staff spacing

If you have very large staff spacing this could absolutely cause issues. Can you show me an example of your settings dialogs?

Re: staff spacing

I don't really understand your requirements. Have you checked your margin settings? Staff margins and Page margins. Setting the justification to 100% should allow you to move staves, vertically, almost anywhere on the page.

Re: Chord Notation

Just a further thought - are you using a Mac? If so, are you on Big Sur or later? Sib 8.2 will NOT work properly on Big Sur. Particularly text or video objects will not behave properly.

Hi Grant,

It's all about the justification.

The version of Sibelius I have is 15.0. Thanks for your reply.
Are you from the future? Sibelius went to version 8, then started using 2019.x, 2020.x and 2021.x. there has never been a 15.

Re: Part Extraction For Staves With More Than One Part

Yes. It has been a recently added feature that I was hoping would be added to Sibelius. It still has a few kinks, as a visit to the Dorico websites wil show, but it is there.
