  • Examples of Sibelius used with VSL?

    Does anyone have any orchestral examples using Sibelius with VSL? I'm curious how this sounds -- the level of realism which can be attained through a notation program with VSL.

    Thanks in advance if you have something to post.

  • Mahlon,

    not full orchestral but Brass 1&2 and special brass. This is the final movement of a symphony for brass band and uses piccolo trumpet, cornets (10), horns (3), wagner tubas (2), Euphoniums (2), tenor trombones (2), bass trombone, bass (2) & contrabass (2) tubas, timpani and lots of percussion.

    The MP3 is a virtual performance entirely created and recorded in sibelius. The performing score is littered with keychange notes and midi control date largely to control the velocity xfade. There are 3 VEs with about 27 instruments. The main problem with this performance is the mix which I am entirely green about but hope to improve over time. I haven't yet got my head round panning properly. The reverb is the feeware "Ambience".

    Whilst there is much to be desired I like what I've achieved and am conficent when I've honed my skills particulary with the mixing side you could create a really good performance in this way. The second link is to the score (published not performing) on my sibelius home page.

  • Thanks for posting that movement. That gives a good enough 'picture' of what the final might sound like -- and, as you say, after you've finessed the mix a bit, it should sound really quite good.

    I like the music, too! [:D]

    This is my current project. Almost  everything played back by Sibelius.


  • I wrote this in India on a laptop... Special Edition,"mixed" in Sibelius with Breverb for reverb. Got hooked on the muted trumpet patch!

    "Her Heart" can be downloaded from here:

    I'd love to hear other examples from users too. This is an interesting and rapidly evolving direction it seems. Especially happy to see Sibelius integration within PT 8.
