Saving Score Doesn't Save Loaded Sounds

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7


Patches, or patch settings, manually loaded in a plugin are lost when revisiting a saved score after exiting Sibelius.


Sibelius does not save sounds as part of the score; instead, when saved, each score references the playback configuration in use at that time. The benefit of this is that the same playback configuration can be reused for many scores without having to create it every time.

When manually loading the sounds, or when editing settings or other aspects of those sounds, be sure to save the playback configuration afterwards from the Playback Devices dialog so that those patches/settings will be recalled the next time the configuration is used.
