Noteperformer and Sibelius 7.5

Hi everyone,
I want to share with you two products that have a lot of potential for composers to share their music. Noteperformer is a software insert for Sibelius that has an algorithm that reads ahead in the music and phrases the music according to context, therefore making the realization closer to live performance. The new Sibelius 7.5 version has a feature that enables export of compositions as movies using this playback.  I then upload the exported movie to youtube and embed the youtube video on a web page. It is all very easy to do and greatly enhances the ability for others to see and hear your music. To see an example of what I had done, you can go to my blog page for an eight movement educational woodwind quintet composition that I am working on. http://www.cooppress.net/Neverland_WW5_blog.html
I hope that this helps you with sharing your music.

This is terrific! Excellent sound quality and nice clear score, and the ability to share is remarkable.  Maybe I will have to upgrade ..... I'm using v.6 now.

Sy,
Did you have to upgrade your soundcard?  The only thing that is holding me back is wondering if I have a card that will support the upgrade.  I'm anxious to hear the piano and voice sounds in 7.5.
 
Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick!
 
I purchased Noteperfomer and found it to be TERRIFIC for my instrumental sounds for Sibelius notation.  At this point, voices are not a part of NP.  The genius who invented NP, Arne Wallander (Sweden), is hard at work on a version that will make voices sound almost real.  I will buy it as soon as it is available.
 
Cheers!
