Tuning pitch selectable

At present, Sibelius Player assumes A=440. This proposal is twofold: (a) to allow scores to specify the intended playback tuning, and (b) to permit the tuning to be varied by the user on the Transport panel.

RE: Improvements To Sibelius - New Midi Editor

(What follows is a letter I sent to Sibelius contact and, Josh with the support team, recommended that I post the letter on this page.) March 14, 2014 RE: Improvements To Sibelius - New Version Development: Get With The Times. Be The First.

23.976 frame rate

Sibelius has 23.98, but not 23.976 options for frame rate. Careers have been ruined by not acknowledging the incremental bad dub/sync when using incorrect frame rates between 29.97 drop and 29.97 non drop.

In many forms of music (example: plainchant, Anglican chant, other forms of early choral music) the written note may only suggest the length. In Anglican chant in particular, the written note is held for however ...more »

Better support for font customisation

Formerly placed with the title 'Improve notation features (2)' part of an earlier thread suggesting systemic changes. There should be a way to export system settings. Local (document) settings can be preserved in a house style but this does not include things like modifications to fonts made at the system level in music fonts. Edits made to music fonts - for example slightly larger copies of existing fonts - don't ...more »
