Sibelius Plays Unwritten Low Notes

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7


During playback some instruments play unwritten notes in the bottom of their range.


When out-of-range or unwritten notes are being played it's usually the result of incorrect channel allocation. The unwritten notes are keyswitch notes Sibelius is generating based on the score markup for specific patches, but the information is being routed to the wrong place.

See: Articulations Don't Switch Correctly for instructions to resolve this.
