Quote from: c#minor on September 05, 2008, 03:57:27 PMWhen you are playing a MIDI instrument is there any way to turn the metronome on to keep time?
Quote from: karlhenning on October 09, 2008, 06:31:07 AMLuke! How does one handle the two following (admittedly commonplace) practices:1. A percussion staff which must include different noisemakers (by turns serially, and simultaneously).

Quote from: karlhenning on October 09, 2008, 07:03:21 AMThanks, Luke; I need to do a little more investigating myself.Percussion-wise: What I would do in Finale was tweak the percussion map on a five-line staff, sounds much like your tack . . . I remember needing to do that more or less at the outset of 'building' the document.Split-staves: In leafing through the Sibelius 5 Handbook, I get the impression that it is possible to . . .Wait; here's what wants doing:Separate line for a solo cello for say ten measures, while altri continue playing their accompaniment. So in the score, that will be a distinct staff for a page (say), but it's got to be on the page of the cello part.The Handbook (which is just a 150-page affair) has 40-odd pages devoted to How To, but these are just sample score pages with captions referencing chapters in the on-line reference (thus, not so very informative when I'm reading the Handbook on the train last night )Looks like it ought to be workable, but I need to check the on-line reference . . . .

Quote from: karlhenning on October 12, 2008, 10:00:11 AMPercussion . . . okay, looks much as it did in Finale. So now my rough question is about, say, a percussion I part in which the player will switch from a single-line staff triangle to a grand-staff vibraphone. But I think that the line opened up by the cello solution may serve here, as well.I think it's time to go back to Sibelius itself . . . .
Quote from: karlhenning on October 12, 2008, 01:22:05 PMApart from my getting a different set of options when I right-click on a staff, Luke . . . the percussion alterations are quite easy.
Quote from: karlhenning on October 12, 2008, 01:22:05 PMI am enjoying Sibelius a great deal!
Quote from: karlhenning on October 16, 2008, 08:37:18 AMHow does one selectively hide staves, page by page? I have a feeling this must be easy, but I'm not doing it.
