An iOS and Android app that work as keypad and shortcuts

I visualice an iPhone app that works as the keypad on Sibelius, with all the symbols. Or an iPad app, with not just the keypad, but a lot of shortcuts to work more efficiently on Sibelius.

Organ Manual1+Manual2+Pedals = 3 staves record at the same time

It is not possible to record two organ manuals + Pedals (3 staves) simultaneously in real time (flexi time).

Does Sibelus receive on the all MIDI Channels?

Is it possible to split the recording according to MIDI Channels?

For example – Manuals = MIDI Channel 1 and Pedals = MIDI Channel 2

Tuplets advanced

In a 6/8 measure I can create quadruplets to have a conflict rhythm 6 quavers against 4 quavers. That's nice. I wish to have the same function in a 5/8 measure, to achive the conflict rhythm 5 quavers against 4 quavers. Presently, if I mark all the 5 quavers and chose "quadruplet", Sib takes the first 3 quavers and creates a quadruplet, leaving the remaining 2 quavers unchanged. That's not what I wish. (Actually, that ...more »

Share feature - just get rid of it?

As the functions in the File/Share menu seem to have been left to rot, shall we simply remove this item from the File menu?

Sibeluis forgets my preference for alternative Sounds location

I deleted my Sibelius 7 Sounds library because it was taking up 13GB of space. Now, whenever Sibelius starts, it has a popup that says "The library Sibelius 7 Sounds cannot be found. Would you like to specify an alternative location?" Since the sounds are gone, I always answer "No" after checking the box next to "Don't say this again", but it always says it again. I guess whoever put that checkbox there assumed no one ...more »

~K for keyswitches

The Sound IDs in Sibelius allow the user to select many different instrument articulations when playing back with Vienna Symphony Library (VSL) ... but occasionally I need to temporarily select a patch (cell) with a keyswitch for which there is no corresponding Sound ID. I can do that by adding a hidden staff, but that is a hassle for large scores - it would be more convenient to simply have a command like "~K,A0" (just ...more »

Beam over rests for one passage not the whole score in Sib 8

Does anyone have a workaround for beaming over rests when you just want to beam over rests for one line, not the entire score in Sibelius 8? There used to be a way in Sibelius 6 but now whatever I try changes the entire project.

Saving a device within a playback configuration as a preset

I would like to be able to save one of the devices in the playback configuration pane into the "Available Devices" pane (basically, being able to attach a name and preset to an entry in that list). The use case for this is when you need to create an orchestral template from memory-hungry components: at the moment you cannot, for example, move an instrument using a fixed sound-set from one playback configuration to another: ...more »

Mixer Patch Assignment Problems. Is it just my machine?

** SOLVED: I found the problem: the Sound-set concerned (by Sound-set Project) had trailing spaces on some patch names. This caused the trailing space to also go into the playback configuration XML. For some reason, having the same trailing space in the sound-set and the configuration file did not make a match, but removing the space from the playback configuration XML file also didn't work. However, removing the trailing ...more »

Display a capo on the fretboard panel

It would be helpful to have the option to show a capo on the fretboard. It would save a lot of mental arithmetic!
