Make "a tempo" text actually affect the tempo

Sibelius does not natively understand 'a tempo' for playback . A workaround for this is:

  • Create an “a tempo” as tempo text
  • add a metronome mark at the same place (something like quarter note symbol =100 )
  • hide the metronome mark in score and parts


Download and use the “restore tempo” plug-in
