Ability to finetune mixer knob values

Currently it is very difficult to finetune the incremental values of the volume sliders and pan knobs. For instance, getting from a value of 92 to 94 on a volume slider is next to impossible as it keeps jumping by more than 3 or 4 values no matter how gently you move your mouse. The pan knob is also just as difficult to adjust - I propose something akin to the the general 'hold down CTRL +' movement to help with these ...more »

Improvement of mixer

I'd like to see an improvement of the mixer:

 

1. The VU meter for instruments relfects midi notes being triggered. That is silly, it should be audio levels coming from the staves played back through virtual instruments.

 

2. Or at least you should have the option to trigger between midi and audio output.

Mixer & Configuration

When selecting new sounds for each stave when using multiple instrument sets, the display is very small and quite sluggish.

 

This needs to be speeded up and refined.

 

It should be easy to change MIDI routing as well.

 

The switching between Mixer displays is somewhat clumsy too. The Mixer is in desperate need of being made to function like a.... Mixer.

Master Fader missing in Mixer

IF (a) In Audio Engine Options, "Release device when Sibelius 7.x is in the background" is checked; AND IF (b) Sibelius is in the background (does not have focus) at the moment when the score file is opened THEN the Master Fader will not appear in the Mixer, and cannot be made to appear by clicking the "Show/hide master volume" button. For instance, if one opens a score file by double-clicking it in Windows Explorer, ...more »

True midi-mapping selectable in playback-config

When working with Sibelius-sounds adding instruments with their specific sounds is quite easy going and very comfortable. Also a lot of sound-libraries such like EastWest stuff can be handled easily with soundsets. But very often there are no soundsets available for unique, rare or older sound-libs like Forest Kingdom, Colossus or ActionStrings. Also when creating own sounds with NI Kontakt adding those to Sibelius ...more »

Allow for user-defined groups in mixer/stop randomizing it.

If you have a large score in S7.5 (30 or more), I have found that some instruments get grouped together in the mixer. They sometimes aren't even related, for example my Piccolo track is linked to my Snare (b) track. When making MP3s, it makes for a challenge to get the correct level. There should be a feature to allow for groupings defined by the user and not randomly added by Sibelius with no editing capabilities.

Return playback sound choice to mixer

In older versions of Sib it was possible to easily reassign playback sounds for each stave from the Mixer. Each stave/channel revealed the instrument assigned to it and allowed that to be changed. This has disappeared in the more recent versions. As an arranger, I miss having the ability to easily reassign different sounds without having to add a new stave to the score, copy the notes into it, audition the results, ...more »

custom mute-groups in the mixer

It might be very helpful to be able to create mute-groups in the mixer. A few predefined and some programmable could be clever like

 

visible only (when focus on staves is used)

family (only brass, ww or strings)

custom 1 to 9 (mute the channels you don't need and click onto a button in a mute-group field while pressing ctrl to save this mute-setting. A simple click would recall the mute-group)
