I use an older version of Sibelius, so I don’t know if these things apply to the newer versions.
With my version (1.4), dynamics are changed by changing the velocity. The preset dynamics will automatically change the velocity when inserted. The other way is to insert a midi command. Example (C7,100), which restores the channel after the cress./dim. Plug-in has been used. Again, I can only speak for 1.4, but the problem with inserting midi messages is that it affects all the instruments on the same channel. In other words, if the Flutes and Horns are on channel 4, and you insert the C7 midi message to change the dynamics of the flute, the horns will in like manner be affected. I’m pretty sure GPO handles changes in dynamics differently, which is too bad because it makes Sibelius and GPO that much more incompatible. A standard across the board would make life so much easier for everyone, and would naturally bring the products closer to one another.
Not sure what the bracketed question was all about. [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]
