    Sibelius + GPO, percussion problems...

    I use the most recent version of Sibelius 4 and GPO. I have percussion parts in my scores, like cymbals, tamborines, castanets, etc., and I label them, but they do not sound correctly. How can I fix this problem. I have the channels set to "orchestral perc."


    Thank you

    I use Sibelius, as well. I haven't used the percussion instruments, but I seem to recall that they need a special staff - or at least a cerain kind of staff placement. Perhaps I am wrong, and just mis-remembering. Try posting this at the Sibelius board - I'm sure the answer is quite simple ( but still too hard for me to answer!).

    Thanks, I went to the Sibelius forum with no luck yet! I have gone all through the help files and it looks like it is going to be extremely comlicated to get this to happen?!?!?!?!? I will report back if I find any information.

    Captain,

    Did you post a question? Or just look in the database? I was at the Sibelius site earlier, and I don't recall seeing your question (I could have just missed it...). Usually there is a prety quick answer to most queries.

    R. Pearl,

    Wait a minute, maybe I went to a different place! Here is the link to the Sibelius Forum I went to:
    http://www.sibeliusforum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=825

    There is still no reply to my question (on that forum)! This really makes me angry becuase most of my scores use a lot of percussion and it makes me cringe when a crash cymbal is supposed to sound and I hear a timpani, even worse the timpani doesn't susatin long enough either!!!! I am determined to makes this work somehow. Thank you for your time!
