MOVE Note back in time by CTRL+Arrow Left or forward by CTRL+Arrow Right
a function with es. Shift+R that repeats the selected notes to back in time (to make croma advances for jazz) for anticipation rhythm
I prefer to use the keyboard shortcuts when I can. So if there is a way to remain editing after I add a slur or line type. For example. When I enter a slur. I select a note, I hit S, hit spacebar to the length I want, and hit Shift S to remove the slur. Wonderful! so fast. But now when I want to enter the next slur I have to select a note with the mouse again. If when you hit Shift S, the note remained selected then ...more »
A suggestion for improving playback navigation. If you are working on a section of music and hit the spacebar Sibelius relocates to the beginning of the piece. Yes you can select the section and hit P but sometimes you forget to select something, hit the spacebar and now you've been relocated. It would be nice to have some kind of Start marker that could be moved about so that hitting the space bar starts from that ...more »
It would be productive to have a quick way to play back at a slower speed. I like and use the slider but sometimes its a bit cumbersome for a quick listen. So something Like Shift - Spacebar to play at 50% ( protools plays at half speed. ). or right click the play button, Or perhaps a button on the transport 50%,75,100% near the slider.
Right now (V8.6.1) the playback dictionary only allows Sound ID changes. That's fine for people who are using Sibelius Sounds or have spent the hours and hours to create custom sound id's (if even possible). However, most sample libraries rely on program changes, CC messages and/or keyswitches. Please add those three options to the articulations tab in the playback dictionary. Please!! The staff text tab already ...more »
In addition to adjusting durations of legato patches, also include notation start times relative to the notated time as a lot of sample libraries are based on starting the following note slightly AHEAD of the beat so that the slur/slide happens first and then the note lands on the notated pitch on the beat. By only adjusting the duration, notes sound like they are a little late and playback sounds off. Also have the ...more »
Perhaps my oldest request, can we please get gliss and portamento lines that actually attach between two notes as opposed to horizontally over the bar? Sibelius is the only notation program that does this and you have to manually adjust it with the mouse. When you have multiple instruments and sections doing a lot of this it can get pretty infuriating...
This hasn't been updated since version 6 and the palette still has 5 empty slots. Can we please get bends, shakes, jazz turns, etc.?
This has to be the easiest thing to do in terms of code. Basically the Sound Editor doesn't give an option if the keyswitch should happen after the note is produced or if it should hold on to the keyswitch as the note plays. I have countless libraries that use this method for articulation releases e.g. falls, doits, scoops, etc. Samplemodelling for example, most keyswitches are meant to be applied AFTER the normal note ...more »
Please may we have full control over which staves to select in System Object Positions. Let us choose every stave if we wish. I'm amazed to discover this doesn't seem to have been requested already!
