My colleague Philip Rothman of NYC Music Service posted this excellent Youtube video tutorial I want to share with you. In the tutorial, Philip walks through how to install and manage Sibelius 7 plug-ins from within the program.
He also covers these six very useful and free-for-download plug-ins:
- Edit Part Instrument Names
- Exchange Staff Contents
- Fill Selection With Slash Notes
- Harp Gliss
- Add LV Symbols to Notes (requires Sibelius 7)
- Open Selected Parts (requires Sibelius 7)
With the exception of Add LV Symbols to Notes and Open Selected Parts, the plugins covered in the video tutorial can also be used with Sibelius 6, by downloading from the direct links above. Sibelius 7 users can download the plugins directly from within Sibelius, as outlined by Philip in his Youtube tutorial.
Philip currently owns and authors the Sibeliusblog website, which is a great resource for Sibelius tips and tutorials.
