Draw Free Rhythm Barline

Added 14 May 2008 (last updated 06 Sep 2009)

For use with Sibelius 5

This plug-in allows composers to write music directly into Sibelius, without having to think about bar lengths or time signatures. They can simply enter notes, and when they want to draw a barline at the end of a bar, they run this plug-in. The plug-in draws the barline, and calculates the appropriate time signature. It then advances the note input caret ready for the next note. For some composers, this offers a much more natural approach to using Sibelius as a composition tool than what they've been used to.

For Sibelius 6, use the shipping version of this plugin.

Plug-in written by Neil Sands.
