Volume Set in Plugin Changes on Playback

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7


Patch volume level that is set directly in a plugin is lost when playback starts.


Many patches have a master 'volume' that is linked to MIDI CC7. The Sibelius staff mixer faders are also linked to MIDI CC7. When playback begins, whatever level is set in the mixer is sent to the patch and your setting is lost.

Use the Sibelius mixer to balance patch levels rather than adjusting the settings in the plugin directly when the patches volume is linked to MIDI CC7.
