Rehearsal Recordings for Cloud Sharing

Version 02.60.03
Added 12 Feb 2018 (last updated 28 Feb 2018)

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 is a variant of the shipping Rehearsal Recordings plug-in, intended to make it easier to use when Cloud Sharing. It can be run from Sibelius 6 on, but is likely only useful in Sibelius 8.7 or later. It addresses the issues of identifying shared scores and removing versions and parts. Here are the differences between it and Rehearsal Recordings:

1. By default, the export option is set to export scores, not audio files (you can change this in Export Options).

2. The generated scores will have any parts and versions stripped out to reduce storage size.

3. The generated scores will remain open at the end of the plug-in to make it easier to share the scores. (Plug-ins cannot currently access any of the Cloud Sharing mechanisms, so sharing will need to be done manually.)

4. To uniquely identify each generated score in the Cloud Sharing Dashboard, score.Title is modified to be the title (as described below) plus the Instrument or Part name that the plug-in adds to the generated file names.

5. The plug-in creates a non-hidden Text object with the Full Score part name followed by the Instrument or Part name that the plug-in adds to the generated file names, followed by the local date and time when the score was generated, to identify the score on-screen. The date and time are hard-coded, not using wildcards, to avoid time zone changes.

Updated 27 February 2018. Fixed crash when using the parts options. The plugin will no longer strip parts from the exported scores because they are required by the parts options. Versions are still deleted from the exported scores. If there is a staff named "Click track", it will by default be excluded from the list of exported audio or score files.
