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 »

(7.1.3b77) object.Select() no longer works for rests

As of Sibelius 7.1.3, selecting a note rest programmatically in ManuScript does not work. This has broken most plug-ins which select things (!) including my own Copy/Repeat Notes Only. Given a single bar passage selection, assuming the variable "selection", toSelect = CreateSparseArray(); for each object in selection { toSelect.Push(object); } while (toSelect.Length) { toSelect.Pop().Select(); } should select ...more »

Vibrato Free Strings and Woodwinds

Allow strings and woodwinds to play long notes without vibrato. Right now a short not is played without vibrato and a long note plays vibrato. This adds dissonance, and is inappropriate for many types of performance practice. I want a way to control vibrato either in the mixer or more ideally in the score.

Playback of tied notes and hairpins; flute sample

When I place a crescendo (hairpin) over a note containing a tie across two measures, the sound volume abruptly drops when playback reaches the second measure. This problem has existed at least since Sibelius 7.0 and continues in Sibelius 7.5. I have encountered it with the flute instrument sample, but not with all instruments.

Sibelius Network License Server - Support IPv6

The current Sibelius Network License server for multiseat licenses only works over IPv4. Please re engineer the licensing server to support IPv6 as well as IPv4.

 

With more and more educational institutions moving to IPv6 (we are fully IPv6 apart from our Sibelius machines), as well BT rolling out IPv6 nationwide in the UK in 2016, supporting IPv6 in Sibelius will become important.

Side by Side Error

A Windows XP or 7 'side by side' critical error - BSOD) occurs intermittently when Sibelius 7.1.3 is rewired to Pro tools 8.x.x. This has now occurred on two distinct, powerful computers. Will continue to troubleshoot Windows assemblies; however, it is floated here just in case it is an AVID issue.

Live Tempo Malfunction

I'm currently trying to work on a piece that is in 8/4 time, and is 200 measures long with 33 staff lines on Sibelius 7.5.1, using Windows 7 Home Premium. I notice that even after calibrating live tempo, when I try recording a live tempo section, the recording bar often seems to either lag far behind or skip far ahead of the measures and tap-points where I am actually trying to conduct. It also doesn't handle fermatas ...more »
