Converting to XML changes Alto Sax to Alto Voice

Post by thesoundsmith » Sat Sep 26, 2020 6:42 am

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.
Also, one song is in 11/8 and musicxml keeps adding Treble staffs every three bars. (The 11 is divided 3+3+3+2, if that is relevant.) My 4/4 big band charts don't do that, but still sing the saxes. And not like Manhattan Transfer.
I tried to find a list of valid instrument names for mxl. but there are too many layers and no clear answers,
Any ideas? Thanks

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