Percussion Pitch Map

Version 01.94.00
Added 21 Aug 2012 (last updated 16 Jan 2020)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x and Sibelius 20.x

Transposes selected notes, optionally changing noteheads and adding articulations according to the chosen pitch map. Specific pitches at specific octaves are transposed, as opposed to all pitches with a given pitch name.

The plugin reads data files called "pitch maps", which will change a note at a specific pitch name and octave to another pitch name and octave. The new note can also be given a different notehead and articulation.

Typically this plugin could be used to remap pitches in cases where pitch mapping is not done by Sibelius on import.

Updated 13 January 2020. Version 01.93.00. Fixed bug where B# and Cb were mapped to the wrong octave, which did bad things. It has been noted that this plugin is capable of doing general pitch mapping, with the ability to remap octaves as well as pitches.

A PDF document describing the plugin is included in the zip file.

This plugin is dedicated to Robert Puff, who provided the built-in pitch maps..

Updated 16 January 2020. Version 01.94.00. Fixed bug where the pitches Cb, Cbb, Bx, and B# were mapped to the wrong octaves.
