I have a MIDI file, installed Sibelius intending to have Sibelius read the MIDI file and display it as sheet music. It does. But treble staff only; the lower notes are all on ledger lines. It's a giant pain to try to read. Basically I find it impossible. The single staff, the treble is labelled "Kontakt," which is the name of a MIDI converter program.
- Open Sibelius
- new project
- choose piano staff, treble and bass, other options look okay as-is.
- file, open, > choose the MIDI file
- sheet music opens, single staff as described above
- one more thing, the MIDI playback when I hit "play" in Sibelius sounds like absolute crap. Wooden, clunky, no dynamics, ... Nothing like the performance it is supposed to be reproducing.
