Sibelius 2022.9 adds an additional way of labeling staff names that effectively allows groups of instruments and individual staves to be named separately, a long-requested feature.
Need to make a clarinet part in a different transposition that the original part? Or a treble clef baritone part linked to the bass clef euphonium part? Here are the step-by-step instructions to set it all up in Sibelius.
The Score System Divider plug-in, included with Finale, inserts or removes system separation marks between staff systems on the same page. Here’s how it works, along with a little history of this useful creation.
Sibelius 2022.5 is out, making it easier to apply a header or footer on a per-section basis, such as a song or movement. Also added is the ability to define or change the content of a wildcard directly in the score.
Measure for measure, this video tutorial series sets the bar for working with Finale’s Measure Tool. From the basics of the Measure Attributes dialog and custom barlines, to beat and note positioning, group barlines, display options, split measures, and more, it’s all here!
Here’s a solution to correct when a cautionary time signature is uncomfortably hanging outside the edge of the page margin in Sibelius.
MuseScore has released version 3.6. This release is primarily focused on engraving improvements and also introduces a new, SMuFL-compatible music font called Leland, designed by Martin Keary and Simon Smith, inspired by the legendary SCORE program.
Managing properties of objects in Dorico is powerful and flexible. You can change properties in two modes: a global mode where the properties are immediately propagated, and a local mode where they are set in the active layout only.
Dorico supports creating empty staves either at the end of a part layout — sometimes referred to as “Hollywood-style” parts — or simply in order to create custom manuscript paper.
Sibelius 2020.9 is available with enhancements to the Focus on Staves feature, enabling new layout and formatting workflows for scores and parts. There are other improvements to MIDI and MusicXML importing, ManuScript, and accessibility.
