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 »

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.

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.

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 »

Integrate Mixer with the Score

Selecting an instrument in the score simultaneously highlights the mixer channel. This would be particularly useful in terms of navigating the mixer in large scores.

A better mixer!

Please give us a mixer that don't requires a microscope to see and handle. Bigger knobs and faders and the abillity to enter numeric values.

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 »

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 »

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)

Custom Color Coding of Channel Strips in Mixer

Identifying Instruments in the Mixer of a large score distracts from workflow. At the very least it would be helpful for instrument groups to be color coded. Icing on the cake would be the ability to set custom colors in groups, as can be done in Pro-tools.

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.
