Sagibelius 2.0 Released

Sagibelius is a plugin for Sibelius notation software to allow notation in Sagittal – which is an extremely flexible generalized microtonal notation. Jacob Barton developed this software and more details – plus software download – can be found at this link.

I tested it on Sibelius 6.2.0 with Vista 64 and it worked perfectly. For Windows users the procedure is:

The Sagibelius font gets installed in control panel / fonts (drag and drop into the font window.)

Then find the plugin is put into the Sibelius plugin folder, in my case

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 6\Resources\en.lproj\Plugins

and put the .plg files into the Accidentals folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 6\Resources\en.lproj\Plugins\Accidentals

You enter microtonal accidentals through the plug-ins drop down: Accidentals / Add Sagittal Accidental.

  1. You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to this, or any other menu item, by going into Preferences. On a Mac, I use cmd-ctrl-shift-A for the basic plugin.
