Hello,

I am not getting my low brass sounds to sound with the template. I am currently using Kontakt 5 with the sound set VDL SoundSet 7.0A. For the brass instruments I am using Sibelius Player and the sound set is Sibelius 7 Sounds. I am on macOS Catalina, version 10.15.4 on a MacBook Pro 2018, using Sibelius Ultimate. Thanks.

Hi, welcome to the forum!

In the sound set drop down menu (the one you seem to not be able to take a screenshot of), do you see "Virtual Drumline 2.5" as an option?


Hugh

No. Here is the list in the drop down menu : (none), General MIDI, General MIDI 2, Jeux, Roland JV - 1080 Orch, Roland JV - 1080, Roland SC - 88 Pro, Roland SC - 88, Roland SC - 8820, Synful Orchestra, VSL Ensemble ... Edition Plus, VSL Ensemble Special Edition, Wallander, Yamaha XG.

Thanks, John

I am trying to use VDL 2.5.5 with Sibelius Ultimate and Kontakt 6.2.2 on Windows 10. I have followed the instructions on how to set up VDL with Kontakt and how to set up the VDL templates from you guys.

The problem that I am running into is that Sibelius or VDL is not recognizing the Sound Set "VDL SoundSet 7.0a." I have followed the instructions on putting this XML file in : C:\Users\John Miller Jr\AppData\Roaming\Avid\Sibelius\Sounds. However, when opening up playback options in the Template 7.0a and activating the Kontakt VST, there is no option for the SoundSet 7.0a under Sound Sets. I have also tried to put the XML file in other locations to see if these programs were just looking in the wrong place. However, that doesn't seem to help.

I have also tried to tell Sibelius what folder to look in under "Audio Engine Options..." and adding the folder listed above in the "Folders..." section. Then rescanning and relaunching. Again, that hasn't worked.

Any ideas on what else I could try or what the error might be?

I have attached images of my Kontakt, Sound Folder, and Sibelius Playback Configs. I tried to take a picture of the different sound sets that I could choose from (none of them the Template 7.0a), but for some reason whenever I try to take a screenshot of it, the window closes.

Thanks

David,

Sorry that you're having issues with the Finale templates. To begin solving these issues, I have a couple of questions.

Have you reviewed the ReadMe document indicating where to place the supporting files (the template files, XML files, etc.)
Are you opening one of the three template files included in the package?

By using one of the template files, there will be no need to use the Finale Library file as that Library is included within the template files.
Two items need to be set for the layouts to look correct. Since you mention that playback is correct, this indicates that you have probably set the Percussion MIDI Map for each instrument. That is the first item to set. The second is the Percussion Layout. This is set from within the Score Manager using the Notation Setting -> Selecting Percussion -> selecting the appropriate Layout from the list.

Let's start here and see how things progress. Let us know if this fixes your issues or if you need additional assistance.

I purchased the percussion maps for Virtual Drumline for Finale for Mac

How do I change the lines and spaces that the different notes appear on on the staff. I thought I could customize this by purchasing the percussion maps.

Everything is playing back fine - it just doesn't look right on paper. Certain notes have a million ledger lines above or below the staff.

How can I take a sound and assign it to a particular position on the staff. Please advise. I was hoping product hoping it could help me do just this. Do I not have the libraries installed correctly?  I thought the custom libraries would prevent notes from appearing a million ledger lines below or above the staff.   Any advice you give would be appreciated.

-David

Aaron,

Save the Finale file as a midi file, then import/open the midi file in Logic. You may be able to save the entire Finale score and/or individual staves as audio files/tracks and the import them into Logic. I've not worked this method, just the midi method, nor have I tried saving a Windows Finale file and then moved it to Logic (Mac only).

Beyond these suggestions, I can't provide any further help.
