Round Metronome Marks

Version 1.2
Added 13 Jun 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

This plug-in examines the entire score and rounds metronome marks, turning for example q=60.0003 into q=60~q=60.0003. So only the display is rounded; the tempo for playback isn't changed.

It will treat metronome marks it finds in metronome text or tempo text. It ignores marks that are already preceded with a tilde.

There's an option to round the metronome marks to the nearest proper metronome value, or you can round to the nearest x decimal places.

Updated 15 October 2012: This version of the plug-in handles commas for decimal marks.

Updated 10 October 2013: New option to overwrite the old metronome mark with the new, rounded one.
