    Anyone help me with a problem im having with Sibelius.

    Im wondering hw to get the programme to play back the crescendos and diminuendos that im adding to the music im composing.

    I've heard it before on other peoples compositions where the programme plays the dynamic marks, such as crescendos and diminuendos but no matter what i do i cant get it to do it on mine, grrrr

    Please, any help is greatly appreciated!

    Have you tried playing back your scores in scorch?

    If you are talking about crescendos and diminuendos on long notes (i.e. anything longer than a crotchet) Sibelius doesn't automatically do this. You have to use the cresc/dim plug in.

    I think you need to get the Kontact (Silver or Gold) programme. They won't play back without that.
