[sib-access] Re: piano forte and manuals

Dear Dave,
thank you for your help. I've looked for what you said, and the only thing I 
found about velocity  were 2 radio buttons in a submenu called transform live 
playback which is in the playback menu. But it didn't solve my problem. Adding 
expression hairpins seems to be easier but I didn't understand all of it yet.
Cheers,
JPR

  JP,

  In addition to Kevin's tip (he's got a good memory for these things) your 
  question as to velocity of the MIDI notes is correct.

  Sibelius (in the play menu) has a selection to allow the original MIDI 
  velocities to come through or to set them to a nominal fixed level. It's 
  usually checked by default when opening a new MIDI file. Drat. I wish I 
  remembered what it's called, but you'll find it if you open the play menu 
  and arrow down a few items.

  You may guess that I'm not sitting at my DAW right now.

  Dave

  Thank you Dave,
  so you mean there is no special hotkey for entering expressions.
  Alternatively, I thought I saw something about Sibelius respecting the 
  velocity of notes input from a MIDI keyboard but I can't remember where it 
  is. Did I dream?

    JP,

    Browse through the create menu in Sibelius, and just play around with all
    the different text styles you can enter. There you will find a way to 
  enter
    expression text.

    Then look at the lines you can enter. There you will find hairpins and 
  other
    lines that affect the playback.

    I won't quote the Sibelius manual because I haven't used it very much.

    Dave

    Hi all,
    I've been looking in vain in the different manuals for ways to enter 
  dynamic
    information such as piano and forte. Instead of telling me how to do it,
    could you please tell me where to look ? As a Sibelius novice, I will be
    asking all sorts of silly questions like this one. This leads me to 
  another
    question.
    The Sibelius reference manual that comes with the software is a real pain 
  to
    navigate through, even after converting it to a text file.  I asked 
  Sibelius
    about an electronic copy of the entire Sibelius user guide but they said
    they couldn't provide it. Is anything like this available from Sibelius
    access?
    Cheers,
    JPR
