Timpani Accents

I've had this problem consistently for a while now on Sibelius 7, but I can't handle it any longer! Wondering if anyone else has had this same behavior.

Whenever writing timpani parts in Sibelius 7 (using the 6.0a template) Regular notes, rolls, etc. play back perfectly fine. When I add an accent, however... the playback switches to the Sibelius 7 Sounds timpani sound... but ONLY for accents. I've tried looking in Edit Instruments like I would to change something in a non-pitched staff, but since it's pitched it doesn't have any assignable sounds per articulation.

Only thing I can find that I think might affect it is in the playback dictionary (turning off the Sound ID identifier for accent) but I don't want it to be global and mess with the built in Sibelius Sounds brass library.

Brainiacs to the rescue?
Hi Matt

I have an idea, but it would help if I had the exact file you're using. Can you send it to me? (Sent you a PM.)

Can you attach an image here of what your Playback Configuration looks like? I'd like to duplicate the environment the best I can.

Thanks Hugh, you've got mail. Attached is the playback configuration.

Thanks again!

Yup, got it.

I don't know when I'll actually be able to look at it since I'm moving, but I'll get to it when I can.
