  • Setting values for dynamics in Sibelius

    Hello All (or just Andi),

    I'm trying to figure out how to set my own values for dynamics like forte piano etc.

    My trumpets are displaying f for forte but its just below full expression which doesnt leave much space to go between ff let alone fff

    Basically, I would like to set the f dynamic lower (and have control over all the other values) 

    I dont want to put another mark in to make it better cos this is a copy piece so it needs to sound correct as written.

    Many Thanks

    Craig


  • Hello Craig!

    If you import the Vienna Symphonic Library House Style, all the dynamic values are optimized for the playback with our collections. In order to keep your layout untouched during the House Style import, just keep the instrument definitions and the dictionary entries activated.
    The Vienna Symphonic Library House Style can be downloaded here:

    It's also possible to edit the values manually in the Sibelius dictionary. Just look for the entries of ppp, pp, p, mp, mf, f, ff and fff.

    Best regards,
    Andi
