Sib. 7.5: Bowing playback of solo viola
Posted by Mark Browse - 01 Jan 12:53PM
I have a piece which includes a slow viola solo. When playing this back, Sibelius changes the direction of the bow in some of the long notes, effectively breaking them into two notes. In the attached file (which is just a four-bar excerpt from a longer piece) the very last note does this. Is there a way of controlling this behaviour? An accomplished real player would be able to change imperceptibly from down-bow to up-bow if necessary.

I can't hear any change of bowing on long or tied notes with NP. What are you using for playback?

Sample attached above has a dangling tie. We can't really tell anything from that.
