Does anyone have any new info they can tell me about regarding playback with sibelius 3 and GPO. A few days ago i started a thread about some of the problems i was having with playback which mainly consisted of:
a) serious distortion with certain instruments, mainly all the brass when they get to forte
b) how to improve playback eg, turn off smoothing, under utilities make sure the processor in set to highest performance, turn off DFD, dont use 32 bit etc etc
Now i got some replies with some very helpful hints that i have read and applied to my set up (which is G5 Dual 2GHz, 1.5Gb RAM GPO and Sibelius 3). There has been a slight improvement but not a lot. The main problem i have is:
Ive got a full orchestral score. Half way through the piece theresa cres. from mf to f. Now when the piece get to f it just distorts beyond belief. Ive done a bit of trouble shooting and found that it something to do with the trumpets, but i don't no what.....
To be honest its really getting me down as i have to work to very short deadlines and im constantly having problems with the playback of my set up. All my drivers and updates are the latest versions and my i have nothing running in the background when im working. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE does anyone know anything that can help me out? when is there a tutorial on GPO and Sib 3 coming out? or is there any more updates being released soon for us Sib3 users?
P.s I notice on the home page that the UK has accepted GPO for its educational use in Universities, can anyone tell me if there will be any seminars being held anywhere so we can go along and talk about problems we have?
