Hi, Im just having trouble with my VDL playback in Sibelius. My playback is playing solo in Konktakt but not in Sibelius. I also made sure to use Kontakt 6. Below I have put screenshots of my playback configuration and the path of the soundest. Thank you!

Hi Gibson, welcome to the forum!

Please start a new thread and include the following: a screenshot of your Playback Configuration, and a screenshot of the full path to where you installed the template sound set.

Hi Hugh,
I am also having problems with my playback. I am able to playback solo in the Kontakt player (I am using Kontakt 6) but I am getting no playback through Sibelius. I tried the trigger tests and they are also not working.

Does he have a license to use the Template?

If it's just pitched instruments, you should be able to copy/paste from one score to another without messing things up. If unpitched instruments are at play, those will need to be entered manually since i'm sure all the noteheads will not match at all. (Go ahead and experiment with copy/paste of the unpitched, see what happens. i'd be curious to see before and after files. Wink )

Be sure to backup/make copies of files before doing anything.

Hi Jeremy

Please attach a screenshot of your Playback Configuration. And a screenshot of where you put the template sound set XML file, include the full path.

Do you see "Virtual Drumline 2.5" as an option in the Kontakt active instance sound set drop down list?

Good evening,

Before the holiday I upgraded Sibelius from 7.5 to 2022.12 Ultimate. I had purchased the writescore template for the 7.0 + version and things worked o.k. until I upgrade OS Systems. Once I went to Catalina, Kontakt5 had some issues with that OS so I took a hiatus. Now I've upgraded Sibelius and OS Monterrey and when it opens I get an error message saying it can not "load VDL SoundSet 7.0a" and switches to General Midi. I can open Kontakt independently and load VDL into it, so that pathway is correct. I'm looking for some help in recovering that template. Please advise.   

Happy Holidays

I don't think he used the template I asked him use when arranging pit parts for indoor.  Given that, I'm not sure the score he used can be converted.  I think I'm going to have to use the template, copy and paste and then go from there.  If I'm incorrect, let me know.

Thanks for all of your help so far!

Made that change. . .something else is wrong.  Here's another screenshot.  Our band director sent the score with pit instrumentation and I think he thought he was choosing the correct battery instruments.  I'm not seeing the 7.0a instruments.

The wrong sound set is applied to the Kontakt instance. It needs to be "VDL SoundSet 7.0a". Swap that out, then give it a go.
