Ok, I'll play around with the Export option. And yes, I modified the BassLine 10-Drums Manual. For some reason, C5 represented the highest pitched drum in the BassLine 10-Drums Manual, D5 - G5 were all the same pitch. So yes, I edited the sound sets assigned to the drums allowing me to use C4 - G5 (C, D, F, A, C, E, G) for my 7 Bass Drum needs.

Now, is there a way to save this "Instrument" from one score to my overall Instrument List within VDL 2.5? As of now, this instrument can only be found in the particular score that it was created within.

That is a Sibelius limitation, instrument definitions confined to the score it's in. Otherwise, the only other way to move it from one score to another is Export/Import a House Style. Depending on how many modifications to things that have been done in either of the applicable files, this method could introduce "bugs" into the "new" file. May not be worth it to get just one instrument definition "migrated" to already-existing scores.

Once you have your modified "Master" template file, use that as your starting point for new projects.


Also, would be ideal for VDL to recognize the various multiple bass drum options and multiple staff lines as necessary to avoid notes appearing like cluster chords. Possibly even the use of a grand staff when 8 or more basses are asked for. The current configuration limits where notes can be placed on a 5 or 6-lined stave.

Yes, I agree that would be ideal, but grand staffs are only for pitched instruments - again, Sibelius limitation. Perhaps you could use multiple instances of the same instrument to alleviate the clustering issue (think "parts"). Just an idea.

Are you using a modified version of the BassLine 10-Drums Manual instrument?

Hugh,

I was able to momentarily resolve the issue of concern some time ago. I created a Marching Bass Line-7 Instrument and reassigned its playback assignments to desired stave lines, etc... Now, is there a way to save this "Instrument" from one score to my overall Instrument List within VDL 2.5? As of now, this instrument can only be found in the particular score that it was created within.

Hi nmcgill, welcome to the forum!

Please attach a screen shot of your Playback Configuration. And a screen shot of the sound set drop down list.

Not sure what you mean by "VSL" option.

Are you able to update Sibelius to 2018.11 or higher?

The AU type is the one you'll want to use once you have things working.

Hi,

I am having the same issue, and it sounds like it might be a version issue like the previous people.

Sibelius: 2018.7
Kontakt 6
VDL 2.5.5

Again, everything seems to be in the right places and loaded, but the sound set does not show the VDL template XML as an option
my Kontakt player in Sibelius shows up as an "AU" type.  I know previously it there was a "VSL" option. Does this play a role in my issue?

Jeff,

Here is a fast, easy solution. When you click a note to add an expression, search for the z shape. This is not to be confused with either of the turn ornaments. If you find it, check to see if it is shape #122. If you don't see it, you can create the shape and playback will not be impacted.

I'll see if I can get on later and provide a more detailed set of steps. Or, you can use the Finale Manual to find out how to create 'new' expression shapes.

Hope this helps.

Jeff,

I'm seeing the same thing on my end. At this point, it's related to Human Playback. If HP is turned of then expressions do not impact playback. When HP is turned on then it overrides expression playback settings. The result is that diddles (slashes) do not playback if HP is off.

Which expression are you using, the number in the upper left corner? I'll keep playing and see if I can find a solution other than  turn HP off.

Hi Ted, I'm trying to get everything dialed in with Finals 26, MacOS 14.4. The squiggly articulation is causing a 3 note playback on the note it is attached to. I want to remove the playback effect. When I go into the articulation designer window the playback  menu is set to "none". I can't figure out how to keep the articulation from causing a playback effect.
