Changing default playback instrument of voices to piano

Post by Benposedi » Tue Aug 02, 2022 7:18 pm

Hello,

I would like to change the default (auto) midi playback instrument of voices to be the acoustic piano midi playback (it is just more clear) rather than the default midi instrument for soprano, alto, tenor, bass. Is there anyway I can make this the default whenever I create scores with voices?

I've had a look around and don't think there's any easy way to do this, at least not in Sibelius 7.5. I stand to be corrected, of course.

Best I can think of is to create a piano (grand) staff and use that to arrange your SATB notes or make a keyboard reduction. You'd mostly hide/mute the piano when not in use.
