MP3-export directly in Sibelius

Although a lousy quality mp3 became a standard in the internet....

 

It's time to implement this as a possible export-format.

 

Add an option-field where user can select either wave or mp3 and depending on this selection a property-field will appear where one can set quality, bit-rate, etc....

Close integration with Pro Tools

I would love to see a close integration between Sibelius and Pro Tools where you can create a score in Sibelius while simultaneously being able, through a special linking system with Pro Tools, tweak the midi notes and the audio playback in Pro Tools (including use of plugins, freedom to choose virtual instruments that play back through Pro Tools, automation, bussing etc). To give an example, you could create a written ...more »

Macro record that creates a plugin

A Microsoft Word style macro function has been mention elsewhere.

 

I'd like to see that function save as a plugin

Incorporate ASIO4ALL-like functionality

When run on consumer-grade audio hardware, Sibelius nearly always benefits from the addition of the 3rd-party utility ASIO4ALL. Since this is so frequently the case, Sibelius would benefit from including the option to provide similar functionality within Sibelius itself.

Audio Export Region

It would be nice to do an audio-export of a bar-region.

 

Type in the first and the last bar of a region and press export.

 

Sure there is a plugin but why so complicated?

Redefine MIXER & MIDI/Audio routing for better file exchange

Midi routing is hard to learn for each program, so if Sibelius and Pro Tools had the same Mixer with identical Midi/Audio routing principals it would be perfect! Not only You learn one and know how to work in PT AND Sibelius, but more: we should be able to exchange templates from each of the two programs to the other. So this also means, that PT should consider a better method for triggering sounds by articulation ...more »

audio/video backing track improvements

Sibelius' video/mp3 playback always needs a few bars to fully sync with the score playback. The timecode offset feature also needs to be improved!

Bring back offline audio bouncing!

With Sibelius 7.5, we lost the capability to do "off-line" mix downs, meaning when exporting an audio track, you have to sit there and listen to the entire thing in realtime. This is very frustrating when you have a long score or are trying to make rehearsal MP3s. Avid finally introduced this capability with Pro Tools 11 but took it away for some reason on Sibelius 7.5. It is extremely time consuming and monotonous. ...more »

Populate media file export metadata from Sib file metadata

When exporting audio or video files, the relevant information in the Sib file (composer, copyright, etc.) should be entered into the same fields as the media file.

It's rather a PITB to have to seek out a tool with which to edit these fields afterwards.

Inbuilt audio player

For those of us who undertake transcriptions or arrangements it would be amazing to have an inbuilt audio player like QuickTime..incorporated into the transport bar perhaps...whereby you cold play an audio file from within Sibelius through this player to help you arrange/transcribe. At the moment you have to play an audio file through a different application and keep having to switch back between that and Sibelius in ...more »

Remember default audio hardware.

I have onboard sound for Skype etc., a quality audio interface for DAW work. Not, I imagine, a unique setup. If I forget to power the external interface before starting Sibelius, it defaults to the onboard sound. But next time I start Sibelius, this setting is remembered. I have to go to Audio Engine and re-choose my external interface. When I open a score that expects a different playback device to my default one, ...more »

Bugs

Sibelius exports nothing during export but playbacks.

I've found a very annoying issue with Both Sibelius 7.x and Sibelius 8.1 on El Capitan: Sometimes, for some certain project file, while I was trying to export them to audio files, Sibelius play the music as the output progress bar increases and finally exported nothing onto my hard disk.

 

P.S. This bug exists for really long time and some other users encountered this bug with Sibelius 6.
