I attached two screen shots. The one with Kontakt 5 in standalone is the message I see when I attempt to add the library. It says it failed. However, when I click OK, I see that the VDL library was still added.

Is this comment for the first image? Nothing from the TWS Template package should be loaded directly into Kontakt. I still don't see VDL loaded into Kontakt, should see it in the left sidebar.

The second screen shot is in Sibelius. I added the VST Kontakt player, and it now works- the VDL sounds are playing properly! Looks like I had the AU Kontakt player in there instead. So, I guess it works now, unless you see something on my screenshots that I need to fix?

Since you're on a Mac, the AU version is the one to use (all Mac users I've ever seen use AU). Either way, I would not use both AU and VST at the same time.

Also, when I delete the VDL library in Kontakt 5 in stand alone mode, the sounds still work in Sibelius when I have Kontakt 5 VST into playback devices in Sibelius. Is this normal?

Yeah, something with that statement doesn't sound right. If VDL is not loaded into Kontakt, then Sibelius is triggering sounds from somewhere else.


So, do you have VDL/Kontakt working as you think it should be? You should:

1) be able to see VDL in Kontakt as a loaded library.
2) be able to load VDL patches into Kontakt directly in Kontakt (stand alone mode).

You may need to get back with Tapspace to help get VDL installed correctly, and/or double check what is installed is good to go.

Hi Hugh,

Sorry for hiatus. I got caught up on some other things and my computer was in the shop the past month.

I reviewed the VDL 2.5 User Guide and found the section about the Kontak player. I followed the directions and added Virtual Drumline 2.5 into Kontakt 5. However, I see on the directions that it says I need to make a copy- I was able to find "Virtual Drumline 2.5" on my computer but I am not sure I made a copy?

I attached two screen shots. The one with Kontakt 5 in standalone is the message I see when I attempt to add the library. It says it failed. However, when I click OK, I see that the VDL library was still added.

The second screen shot is in Sibelius. I added the VST Kontakt player, and it now works- the VDL sounds are playing properly! Looks like I had the AU Kontakt player in there instead. So, I guess it works now, unless you see something on my screenshots that I need to fix?

Also, when I delete the VDL library in Kontakt 5 in stand alone mode, the sounds still work in Sibelius when I have Kontakt 5 VST into playback devices in Sibelius. Is this normal?

Thank you for the help.

Would you attach a screen shot? Are you talking about the Layout Maps?

Using Finale 2014.5 with VDL 2.5.5 on Mac. When starting from template everything seems to be working except the notes don't appear in he correct spot.

I tried this but I do not see any files in the Sibelius folder. You mentioned it is hidden. I can't seem to unhide it (I tried looking up that, too).

Hi Mike

Good, you found a copy of KP5.

Sibelius will auto-load patches into Kontakt Player for you once it's all setup properly. Can you manually load VDL patches into Kontakt Player when it's in stand alone mode?

Please attach another screenshot of your updated Playback Configuration.

Hey Hugh,

Thanks for the info. I contacted them and they helped me find the place to download Kontakt 5! Now, when I open the TWS Sibelius template, I choose Kontakt 5 AU and select the vdl soundset for the soundset. Next, I added a marimba and there is no sound. I know I am missing a step here. It's been a while since I've done all of this so I'm forgetting how to do all of this. Is there a step to load VDL into Kontakt? I checked the VDL read me but couldn't find that info. Could you point me in the right direction? Thank you for the help!

Kontakt 6 Player is not compatible with Sibelius 8.x yet. Stick with Kontakt Player 5 until then.

If you need to download KP5, I think Tapspace might be able to help (not sure though).
