Finally, before exporting a video, you need to decide on a suitable resolution. There are four options — p, p, p, p — which refer to the number of vertical pixels in the resolution. Also worth noting is that the lower two resolutions have a aspect ratio, whereas the highest are both To be honest, though, I found the quality of anything but p to look a little blurry, especially when exporting a video of a full score, and would recommend using that resolution where possible.
One small point is that it would be helpful if the video export feature retained the last used settings, rather than returning to the somewhat useless p default with the score paper texture enabled.
As well as being able to export a score as a video file, you can share the video on YouTube or Facebook. But by far the niftiest sharing option is the ability to email a copy of a score to someone without having to leave Sibelius. Type the email address you want to send the email from, decide whether you want to receive a copy yourself, and choose what exactly you want to include in the email.
You can attach any combination of the Sibelius file itself, a version that can be opened in a previous version of the program going all the way back to Sibelius 2 , and a PDF file of the score with or without parts. Then, enter the addresses of the people you want to receive the email, type an optional message, and click Send. But compared to the workflow of manually performing each step described above, this new ability is a glorious time-saver.
The only tiny request I would have is for the option to send an audio file say an MP3 of the score as well.
Conclusion Sibelius 7. Jean Sibelius, the composer, never completed an eighth symphony. A Scorched iPad During the height of the Internet bubble in , Sibelius Software before they were acquired by Avid released a Web browser plug-in called Scorch that enabled Sibelius files to be viewed within web pages.
This still exists with Sibelius having long offered the option to export your score as a Scorch web page and is now complemented by an Avid Scorch app for iOS, enabling you to view and play back scores on your iPad. A slightly obscure-but-interesting footnote is that the iPad employs the same basic ARM processor architecture as the Acorn computers that ran the original version of Sibelius 7 back in As part of Sibelius 7. Once More, With Feeling Given that a score is essentially a fully quantised musical representation, Sibelius has always tried to imbue a sense of performance when playing back a score to prevent it from sounding as mechanical as it looks.
One of the ways it does this is with a feature called Espressivo, which, according to the manual, tries to add expression by emphasising the higher pitched notes in a musical phrase.
However, the algorithm that figures out what notes to emphasise has more than a few limitations: firstly, it resets on a rest, and secondly, it can only evaluate pairs of notes at a time, limiting the scope of the expression.
To overcome these limitations, Sibelius 7. The key improvement is that Espressivo 2 now remembers notes that have played during the last couple of seconds, giving it more information to work with when evaluating how the current note should be performed.
Espressivo 2 is also able to look into the future as well to emphasise notes based on rhythmic context, such that a short note played before a long note will be emphasised more than the entry of the long note. Espressivo 2 is enabled by default in Sibelius 7.
The rhythmic feel playback options have also been revamped in Sibelius 7. This example works as advertised and is very clear when set to the highest level. However, after a number of attempts, my ears were probably beginning to play tricks on me.
Finally, ornament and grace-note playback has been enhanced, with Sibelius now having the ability to differentiate between acciaccaturas and appoggiaturas on pitched instruments.
And, best of all, using the Inspector you can override the automatic behaviour and manually tell Sibelius which grace notes should be played back on or before the beat. Taken in isolation, any one of the performance improvements can be subtle.
It's not necessary to add extra notes for keyswitches or Control Changes in order to change articulations. I'd check all points in the Troubleshooting chapter of the aforementioned manual to see where the problem comes from.
Maybe you have the wrong Sibelius instruments in your score. Can I add to this thread that the word 'instrument' in this context might be confusing to people because what is meant is staff. The troubleshooting section of the pdf says 'You have to be careful to choose the right instrument in Sibelius' - but this is choosing from a list of staffs, not sounds. Hi Oceanview! I have chosen the word "instrument" because that's what the Sibelius menu is called.
