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 and Sibelius 18.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.
