Re: Converting to XML changes Alto Sax to Alto Voice

??? Was that meant to be an answer? My Zen chops are kinda weak these days.

Converting to XML changes Alto Sax to Alto Voice

Converting big band chart to XML changes Alto and Tenor Sax to Alto and Tenor Choir Voice. Baritone Sax and the brass convert fine, but It appears MusixXml wants specific instrument names. I've tried several, to no avail. This is Sibelius Ultimate, latest updates.quad-core i7 computer with 16G RAM. ...

Re: Dynamics no longer obeyed on playback

Thanks - first off, I forgot there WAS a half-mute. That probably explains why I thought the reed dynamics were OK. But volume midi messages? How else do hairpins operate? This file has been under development for at least ten years, with dozens of rewrites and updates, and I have zero recollection o...

Re: Dynamics no longer obeyed on playback

I'm back. The dynamics seem to be ignoring me again. Tried other house style, other playback config, also dynamics down one then back, to no avail. The dictionary had p set to 61, seemed high so I dropped it to 50, no change, hanged to Jazz Reprise, dictionary says it sets p to 39- it still plays ff...

Re: Dynamics no longer obeyed on playback

Thanks. I tried changing to the standard Sib House Style in an earlier version and the dynamics were back, but the articulations were still off. Reloaded the newer version without changing setups and the dynamics seem to be working, reloaded the Jazz version and dynamics may be back. Thanks, I am go...

Re: Dynamics no longer obeyed on playback

Thanks, but none of those relate to this issue. Most of the tracks are following the dynamics, just the trombones - 3 bones, one bass - just blat at ff.

I was hoping there was a toggle in setup or some such, but I guess I'll have to try rebuilding/copying the tracks and see if that helps.

Dynamics no longer obeyed on playback

Big band chart, SOME of the dynamics expressions are not being acted upon. The saxes and trumpts are fine, trombones stay on ff unless altered by a hairpin. I have run the midi cresc./dim plug-in and the hairpins work, but p, ff etc. are ignored. This is a new installation on a new Windows 10 comput...

Sove parts do not play-Sib7.01

I have a simple score with a melody copied twice. Also guitar, bass and drums. Only the acoustic guitar and acoustic bass play audibly. The other tracks in the Mixer window are not muted, and the meter bars indicate activity. Volume up, pan moderate, all the usual. If I press the demo button the ins...

How to select drum part instruments in S5

If I create a drum staff and then try to enter notes, some instruments (bass drum and snare) sound when I enter the note. Other instruments (cymbals, cowbell, etc. - and sometimes snare as well) do not seem to correspond to the instrument I wish to play. Even copying from another score can have unex...

How to fix midi events improperly generated by Sib 5?

OK, here's the deal - I can't describe EXACTLY what I do to cause this, but it is very consistent as a generic action: I create a part which includes a slur or tie to another note. \It plays fine. Later, after more editing, I change the note value - change length or pitch (maybe I am changing from a...
