Thank you so much for the response. Yes, the price point is very nice and the sounds are incredible, however the lack of support from their side puts me off. Tapspace has excellent support, but Im not a huge fan of the reverb sound on the samples. I love the crispness of the snare samples, as well as the brass!
The thing I find interesting is that they mention 'seamless' integration within Sib 7, but the XML they use mentions this from their site:In order to use the soundset XML file you must own Sibelius version 6.2 or higher.
Kontakt 5 currently does not work at all with the XML soundset, but can be used within Sibelius with out the soundset.
To use the XML soundset you need Kontakt 4.2.3.

Im not sure if the reasoning is laziness in updating the XML, or really there is a technical issue. The documentation is very sparse and does not mention any Sibelius 7 setup, only where to place the soundset that is non-functional.
For me to use the product currently, I have to use manual sound mapping and using their custom score template. However, I noticed the snare sounds for example, will not play unless its written on the Timpani staff.
I would definitely purchase the VDL template if it wouldnt be a monumental task to change over to the VET/Rumble drum samples.
The other interesting point is that others seem to be composing using the library on Sibelius, however I can't figure out what they are doing to use it correctly since my knowledge of Sibelius and mapping is very limited.
I would be happy to help in anything you need to get this to work. Im sure others are running into the same thing.
Thank you so much!!
