New here. Is this the right place for a technical question? About Sibelius notation. So I tend to think of an accent (>) as shortening the note it sits over. Sibelius playback apparently does not, it just boosts the velocity/attack on the the note. So I have written > over . on the notes to get a short and accented note. Which do you think the players would rather see? My take is that the accent makes SPACE around the note, so it's going to shorten it somewhat, but not the 50% you get from a staccato. so > over . is hit harder AND stopped at 50% of length. Would you rather have > over . ?
Hello, thanks for the registration, and sorry for my English. I connected through facebook where I have given name with diacritic (accent on letter i). It seems it may be problem in some cases: some fonts does not support it or letter is lost somewhere. Can you please change my name in profile to have no accent? Thanks Vladimir Ladma, Czech Republic
