    I'm writing a song in the program 'Sibelius 5', and want to add dynamics into it (like forte, piano ect.), and I want the midi file generator playback device thingy to play them. how do I do that?

    I'm trying to write 'Circle of Life' for 4 trumpets, and I also want for example at one time the First trumpet to be playing Forte, whilst the others play Piano. how do I do this?

    I would try to figure it out myself, but my english music knowledge is non existent.

    press Ctrl + E, then click where you want the dynamic, and finally right click and choose your dynamic from the menu.

    Or - highlight the note where you want the dynamic and then hit CTRL E (or Apple E on a Mac). I usually do that. On a Mac, which doesn't have a "right" mouse button, use ctrl click to get the menu
