Pitch Spectrum

Version 01.05.00
Added 21 Aug 2006 (last updated 24 Jun 2012)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1 and Sibelius 5

This plug-in allows you to specify the colors of the pitches in the pitch spectrum from a list of named colors. Since, unlike Edit > Color, the pitch spectrum can color individual notes in a chord, this can be a useful way to color chords. The plug-in allows you to reset to the Sibelius default spectrum colors when you are done.

This plugin will not work in Sibelius 6. Try the shipping Color Pitches plugin for the closesest workaround.
