A2 Technique Text Tip!

In this very short ‘Quick Tip’ post, today we’ll look at using Technique Text in your score, specifically with Vienna Symphonic Library samples.

I’ve been asked a few times now on the site why I use individual instrument staves for VSL, but not for NotePerformer, well its all to do with how VSL interprets a2 text instructions within the score!

Now sometimes, how Sibelius handles this is exactly what you want, and at other times its exactly what you don’t want, so I use individual staves going much finer control of playback of each instruments (with the added bonus that the individual parts will be correct too!) then consolidate my score into a Conductors score with all the markup as needed once my tune is completed.


I’d love to know how you’re getting on, or how you use VSL with Sibelius, so please do let me know in the comments below.
