Re: Avid Link Won't Open - "Your Computers Clock Has Been Set Back..."

What version of Sibelius? Some folks have issues with W10 updates causing problems. Some folks have problems because they don't keep their computers updated. Un-installing seldom works because it is very difficult to un-install everything that has to do with Sibelius. What is different about your co...

Re: Getting good orchestral sounds with Sibelius 5 on Windows 10

Google is your friend. There are several work arounds. But in general make sure you have one of your licences free. It might be easier to download the latest version of Sib. 5 (5.2 something) from Avid. It is supposed to have the updates in it. You may have to deal with compatibility mode, and updat...

Re: Glissando line 'bleeding' over to the next page

You should just be able to select the end on the gliss. A box will appear and you can drag it to the left. I just did it in regular view.

Re: Batch Convert Sibelius to MusicXML

Look for a plugin in Sib or on the Avid website. Not sure if there is one or not.

Re: Making customised percussion instrument sound in midi playback?

What do you mean by Midi? You can edit Sibelius sounds which are not midi. After you create your instrument make sure to save it properly, as per the manual, and it should be added to the instrument list. Don't just close the edit window.

Re: Revert to Sib 7.5

You may need to try to activate 7.5 a few times. And restart your computer.

Re: Audio Export Problem...

That procedure has been known since 7.5. Sibelius hasn't changed a lot since then. I haven't had to use it since using W10. I doubt that Avid is going to do much in the way of fixing anything.

Re: Revert to Sib 7.5

All of which is why I have stayed with 7.5. There have been a few improvements but not enough to make me upgrade.

Re: no playback, no sound

Are you talking about volume for the entire system? Like videos or music? Or just Sibelius.

Re: pitch playback problems

Re: Sibelius Ultimate 2019 - Startup music

As I understand it, they used music from Sibelius' symphonies corresponding to versions of the software. But as he only wrote 7 symphonies, I don't know what they used after that.

Re: Is there any way to use other soundfonts?

Besides, there are lots of marching percussion sounds in Sibelius.
