Graphical MIDI Tools (GMT) is a Sibelius plug-in that cleverly and ingeniously takes full advantage of Sibelius’s extended features such as colored objects, custom text, hidden MIDI messages, and more. It uses those features to superimpose a temporary sequencer-like frame on any given selection, and then gives the user the ability to draw in automations to manipulate the data in a way never before seen in a Sibelius tool. Moreover, there are additional windows to adjust velocity and note duration in piano roll-like fashion.
Graphical CC Automation
Draw curves for automating MIDI CC (Continuous Controllers). Volume, Mod Wheel, Expression, Pan, Pitch Bend, etc.
Tabs are configurable for any CC.
Graphical Velocity Editor
Edit note velocities in a graphical way.
Little Mini Piano Roll
Make slight modifications to the duration and starting point of the note.
Useful for adjusting the legato feel of a melody or customizing an arpeggio, or simply humanizing the lines.
All edits are carried over to the sequencer
After exporting the score to a MIDI file, all modifications done with the plugin are transferred to it.
Hence, when opening the MIDI file in your favourite sequencer (Pro-tools, Logic, Cubase, Reaper, etc.), the changes will appear there.
This will also prevent volume differences between Sibelius file and the Sequencer project.
