Cloud sharing: first impressions
Posted by Antony Beaumont - 02 Oct 08:19PM
So far I have uploaded a few files for large orchestra and one vocal chamber-work. Everything works smoothly, but since this is Version 1 there's plenty of room for improvement.

In my experience, the system can't yet cope with longer files. Scores of 8-12 pages are processed in a few minutes, but a score ten times that length never gets beyond "Please wait while your score is being prepared" (even after running it for over an hour).

The result is optically pleasing, but would perhaps look more like real sheet music if the pages were outlined with a bounding box.

Playback works fine -- with the usual caveats: turn up the volume to hear passages marked piano, and the forte ones will blast you out of your chair.

All the same: bravo for such an enterprising and potentially invaluable addition to Sibelius. I look forward to real file sharing, i.e. where two or more users can edit content and publish their changes. If that's asking too much, allowing viewers to add commentaries to a score would be a very useful feature.

Hi Antony,

Many thanks for the feedback. Could you email me a score you're having a problem sharing?

Sunday 3 October, 21:56 CET the Avid Cloud is down. Too much traffic? Or just a glitch?

Looks like it's up form our side. Email me the details and I'll ask the CloudOps team to look into it.

Thank you for this new feature!
However, this was supposed to be a replacement to Scorch and good news to all of people who don't have an iPad. But so far it is waiting for fulfill that promise.. But the start is promising!

There's missing a possibility to change volume of individual part, show only one part, change tempo, and at this point, transpose and print. They were all the qualities that made Scorch so good in teaching etc. So I still have to continue on exporting Sibelius file on to MusicXML file and open and save it in certain open source software that provide application that works in most platforms, and I have no use of Cloud sharing at this point.

Yes it all works smoothly BUT I use NotePerformer and spend a heck of a lot of time getting the sound right. What ends up in the cloud uses Avid's instrument library and sound awful.

Cloud sharing doesn't work at all with both my MAC Pro and my Windows 10 Laptop. I tried several scores, long ones, and very short ones containing only 4 bars in one voice. A pop-up saying "Sharing Waiting for score's unique URL..." is all I get. For hours. Nothing happens. So I keep building pdf files.

Jongo, try again after the weekend, when Avid have had an opportunity to check their servers.

make sure application manager is running before Sibelius. If you don't, sharing will not work.

I've checked and both Sibelius Cloud Publishing and Sharing are both working well. Jonathan, it appears you have two Avid Master accounts. Check you're logged into Application Manager with the @gomer.name account. This is the one with the license of Sibelius and the correct sharing entitlements.

Hi Sam,
thank you for your reply. I know that there are several mail addresses of mine in my avid account. This is because I changed my address some time ago. I got in touch with the avid support but obviously they did not solve the problem. So if you have the opportunity to delete all other email addresses than the mentioned I appreciate that.
The avid support did several things via remote on my computer, then asked me to reinstall Sibelius. I did so (on Laptop and desktop), now it's working! Yippieh! Thank you so much!
Unfortunately there still seems to be no way to transpose, save or print shared scores. Is that right?
Best regards and thanks again for all the help!
