Nashville Chord Numbers

Version 01.25.00
Added 06 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

Converts standard chord symbols to numeric Nashville chord symbols whose root and bass are numbers representing the pitches position in its major scale. It produces legacy chord symbols with numeric roots and bass notes. It will read Sib 6 chords or legacy chords.

It will handle any valid key changes. It uses the current key signature, treated as a major scale, for the numbering, and optionally lets you override the key for a selection.

There is an option in the dialog to convert Nashville chords to standard chords, and another to format Nashville chords with superscripts.

The plugin will only convert chords that can be interpreted by Sib for Sib 6 style chords, so there may be some legacy chords it will not handle.
