Does anyone know what the command is for the sound to go from Arco to pizzicato within Sibelius notating program?
I read that there is something like a Var 2 command but how is this applied?
I would like a patch of bars played pizz. then the ablity to go back to arco. I'm sure this is a simple procedure and would really love some clarity on this subject if any one out there is willing to help.
On Sibelius, you normally have to do this :
Select a note
Menu "Create" -> "Text" -> "Expression" and then enter "pizz"
Select a note
Menu "Create" -> "Text" -> "Technique" and then enter "pizz" (or right-click on PC or control-click on mac to have a pop-up with techniques).
The inverse is the same procedure but with "'arco".
As far as I understand, you want pizz switching to be active in GPO.
Two Solutions :
1 - Search the forum : you have to create another staff for pizz only in Sibelius and hide it.
2 - Wait for the GPO update, it musn't be long now... It will let you change with a control midi message (CC) the instrument. Very usefull on score editors like Sibelius! Exaclty what you want to do.
Hope that helps.
Well, that's what understood from different messages posted for the update. As I was longing for this feature in GPO, I remembered it.
I hope I didn't give you a bad hope.
Can someone confirm please? You have the choice between yes and yes ;-)
