Number of Channels

Postby hankNoorani » Fri Dec 28, 2018 8:06 pm

Sibelius Sounds 7 uses only 16 channels for my orchestral piece. How can I expand the number of channels? Thanks.

in preferences, you can increase the number of channels to 128, depending on your version of Sibelius.

Do not confuse MIDI channels with Sibelius' internal channels. They are not the same thing.
Sibelius sounds will do some magic to allow you to play pieces with more than 16 channels.
Get a better sound library to do it without tricj=kery.
