Play It Again!

Version 01.09.00
Added 19 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

Repeats playback of a selection either continuously or a specified number of times without requiring changes to the score.

There are some quirks, described in Help. Mainly, the final note will be cut off, there is a gap at the start of the selection, and if the final note is not on a beat, the following note may be played. But it is very convenient to use, and may be useful.

Instead, you may try the Loop Selection plugin, which avoids most of the playback quirks, but it adds text to the score, which may not be desirable.

Updated 20 June 2009 to fix bugs

Updated 1 October 2009 to use Sib 6.1 features to allow repeat of a single note, and to reduce previous quirks.

Updated 15 August 2011. Added ability to process selection or all staves, and no-selection option settings. Added helper plugins Play Again Selection and Play Again All Staves, which run with no dialog and are stopped by using the SpaceBar.
