Sounds Load When Sibelius Starts

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7


During startup, Sibelius loads sounds into various plugins.


Sibelius recalls the playback configuration last used when it is started, which may result in sounds loading during startup if sounds had been saved in that configuration.

To avoid this, you can designate a playback configuration that should be selected when Sibelius starts from the "Preferences" dialog. If you frequently use large configurations with many sounds loaded we recommend creating an empty configuration to use as your default Sibelius startup configuration.
