A Sibelius question

There's one thing in Sibelius I haven't quite understood (only one thing? you might say). It's how to read the size of the ensemble in the sound selection. It can look like this.

This screenshot is from NotePerformer. What does the numbers mean?

  • Those numbers mean nothing to me either.
    I know that Noteperformer combines 8 violins to make the full ensemble and 4 for the half. It's in the PDF.
  • I got this from the NotePerformer team

    "Hi Lennart!

    Don't mind the numbers. It's Sibelius displaying the MIDI bank and program numbers that NotePerformer uses internally. It's not our choice to display these numbers!

    Best regards,
    Wallander Instruments "

    So I guess I can forget those numbers!
