Drum Cues

Version 01.11.00
Added 21 Mar 2021 (last updated 28 Mar 2021)

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

Starting with a passage selection of notes in voice 1, the plugin will change the notes to a single pitch, either above the top staff line or below the bottom staff line, then add one slash note per beat in a different voice.

All the resulting notes and slashes will be silenced.

It will run in Sibelius 6.2 or later, but if you use the Cues Below option prior to Sibelius 2021.2, the voices will be reversed. As soon as the plugin ends use ''Swap Voices 1 and 2'' (shift+V) to correct the voices.

It calls the plugin Fill Selection With Slashes, in category Notes and Rests, to add the slash notes, so you will need to install that plugin as well, if you do not have it installed already.

Updated 29 March 2021. Version 01.11.00.

Fairly subtle changes made for advanced users. You can now choose to leave the cue notes playable, and to change the notehead style of either the cue notes or slash notes to be any style defined in your score, including custom notehead styles. There are additional options for how the slash notes are produced.

Dialog settings are now saved across Sibelius sessions.

If you use the default settings, the results will be the same as the previous version.

This plugin requires the plugin Fill Selection With Slash Notes version 01.25.00 or later to be installed.
