vocal sounds (SATB) play behind the beat

SATB vocal sounds seems to sound persistently behind the beat. Doesn’t happen with other instruments. Any clues as to a fix or work around much appreciated - it's driving me nuts!
Using recent iMac and Sib 8.7.2

It's possible that your observation is an illusion stemming from the very soft "attack" of the vocal sounds. If you would like further investigation, please attach a Sibelius .sib score file which demonstrates the problem.

If it's really driving you nuts, Tony, you could substitute a different sound for playback. Avid won't pay for your mental health treatment.

The Sibelius voice sounds are only good for 'Disney choir'. For clear rhythms and a clean attack substitute other sounds. When making rehearsal tracks for my choir I've found their favourites are brass instruments - trombone for the men, horn or trumpet for the ladies. You may find bassoon/oboe more refined, but less direct.
