Title: VDL playback issues since upgrade
Post by: Ryu867 on August 18, 2019, 06:43:02 PM
Good afternoon all!

About a month ago I upgraded to Sibelius Ultimate. I re-downloaded Virtual Drumline and installed everything but have had numerous playback issues since I updated. I have listed some (but certainly not all) issues below:

- Suspended cymbals playback only as a choke at random
- Incorrect cymbals instruments loading in Kontakt
- Concert bass drum dynamics not playing back
- Concert bass drum barely audible
- Certain tenor note heads wont play back
- Adding a staccato mark above one not in TenorLine changes all notes after it, even without directive text.

These are just the issues I've had since I started making note, there were others I can't quite recall. Did I install something incorrectly? I've listed my specs below. Thank you in advance for any help!!

Specs:

2018 Macbook Pro - High Sierra version 10.13.6
2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
16 GB Memory

Sibelius Ultimate version 2019.5 build 1469
Kontkt Player 6
Virtual Drumline 2.5
Sib_S7S_Template_7.1a/Sib_VDL_Template_7.0a combined format

Please attach a screen shot of your Playback Configuration.

Did you buy the S7S and VDL templates separately or in the bundle?

Here ya go! I downloaded them separate but followed the guide for merging templates from the S7S Readme.

The sound set for the S7S Template is correctly applied.

The sound set for VDL needs to be "VDL SoundSet 7.0a".

Since you have both S7S and VDL templates, I can have someone generate a Bundle package for you, if you'd like.
