Sib. 6.1: ritardando lines
Posted by Salieri - 26 Mar 11:15PM
I have a passage with the MM quarter note equals 80. I inserted a "molto rit" line and it slowed to 63. That was too slow, so I tried plain "rit." But that also slowed it to 63. So did "poco rit." Shouldn't they establish different degrees of ritardando?

BTW, "poco rall" also gives me 63.

Thanks.

You may get a better result if you set the second metronome marker to where you want it to be, and then enter a ritando line between the two metronome markers. Make sure you draw up the lines right up to the metronome markers.

That should slow the score down to where you want it to go.

If you select the Rit and then go into the properties menu. . . >Windows >Properties under Playback you have a couple of settings you can adjust for a Gliss / Rit / Accel.

I prefer the method Peter mentioned, but in the interest of knowing what your options are, keep this one in mind as well.

Here's a recent thread, from when I asked a similar question.

Each of the rit. lines produces the same default change in tempo (ideally they wouldn't) so you will indeed need to use the Properties window to change the playback properties of each line you create.

A-ha! Is it possible to include this in the wish list for a future version? One almost assumes that once these words are established in one of Sibs. dictionaries, that they have play back properties matching the (notation) words.
May I also ask then what features (in notation terms)distinguish the differences between the 2 options given for poco rall and poco rall--etc

I would have hoped that my use of the words "ideally they wouldn't" would have given you a clue about whether or not this might already be on the wish list.

As for the difference in notation between these lines, you can choose whatever you prefer to see.
