Re: Unable to get plugins

Yes, there is only one download. What tier of Sibelius you see depends on what you've paid for - and activated, as you have discovered! Do you intend to download Sibelius Sounds for playback - if so, it's a separate download of over 25GB! Other playback libraries are available, with Noteperformer be...

Re: Unable to get plugins

Sibelius First has no plug-in features at all, and Sibelius has 38 builtin. If you want full functionality, you'll have to upgrade to Ultimate, which has 140 plug-ins built in. Sounds like you have Sibelius First activated, even if you actually bought Sibelius. The name changes Avid made a while bac...

Re: Sib not recognising the input device

If your keyboard plugs straight in via USB, it will work with both Sibelius and Cubase. No need for the interface. As for the doubling of notes, that's a MIDI setting either in Sibelius or on the keyboard. However, as I don't have Ultimate or know how your Korg works, I can't tell you exactly how to...

Re: Sibelius Activation via License Server

You should ask this question on the official forum rather than this unofficial site. You'll probably be advised to raise a case with Avid, but their staff do monitor their own forum and will often help. They never come here! :)

Re: Guitar String Notation w/o Bracket

There are only two or three of us still answering questions on this unofficial site. I don't know the answer and if the others haven't replied, they probably don't either.

Re: Behringer UMC22 sound card issue

If the card is ASIO capable, then you must use its own native ASIO driver, not ASIO4ALL. And do ensure that you have installed the very latest version of the driver. Go to Behringer's website and don't trust Windows if it says you have the latest version! Audioscore Lite should built into later vers...

Re: Sib not recognising the input device

Before we go any further. You have activated the licence as Ultimate? You're not inadvertently running basic Sibelius? Remember that there is only one Sibelius download from Avid, and the tier that you're working with depends on which tier is paid for and activated. Why are you connecting via the UR...

Re: Harp Glissando?

Never had to do this, but at a guess: Work out the notes to be played. Enter the starting note, then create a tuplet that will allow you to input the rest of the into the beat(s) available. You'll have to input a ratio for this, something like 12:8 or whatever is required. Elect to hide any tuplet n...

You could also try posting the question on the official Sibelius chat page - https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?groupid=3 - and maybe one of the Avid staff like Justin Tokke or Ingrid Guce will respond. But registering software as old as Sibelius 3 was never going to be possibl...

Re: How to Get Out of Review Only Mode

This has been happening a few times. You could do a bit of a search to see if there was a solution, or perhaps ask on the official Sibelius chat pages rather than this unofficial forum. However, the best advice is probably to ditch Sibelius First and use Musescore 3 instead. It's free, more powerful...

Re: Focusrite not available as device

General MIDI won't work with ASIO. Have you downloaded and installed Sibelius Sounds? If not, that's your next step, but I'm not 100% sure it works in the trial period. Only one way to find out. Big download - 23GB+ and unpacks to over 34GB. Once installed, you'll be able to use the Playback Configu...

Re: Process for signing up to SIBELIUS FIRST

Not sure of the cost for you - check on the Avid website - but it's still really cut down from the full Ultimate version, which is the only one worth buying. Playback using virtual instruments is good but not perfect. You can use the Sibelius sound library itself right out of the box. Or buy third p...

Re: SIBELIUS FIRST in "Review Mode" Telling me to log in to Avid Link

I'd switch to Musescore 3. Free, no silly authorisation issues, and more powerful than Sibelius First! And Musescore 4 is on the way. I've given up recommending Sib First because it's so cut down - almost useless IMHO. And when you want to upgrade from Musescore to Sibelius Ultimate, if you should n...

I back up to a second hard drive and then to an external hard drive that isn't normally connected. That can be kept off site if that's required.
