I thought everything was working fine on a project which is making extensive use of the Percussion library. However whilst thus far all the Cymbals are reacting correctly to expression changes the Standard Cymbals set (A-D) are proving stubborn. I have no idea now what might be causing this. I've looked in the SSE programme to see if something is amiss and actually I can't seem to locate the Cymbals in question (unless these are the suspended cymbals of course). Also I can't make out where and how the different articulation types are being stored in the SSE. I can of course see the various mapped keys for the different articulations but when I change to a different beater I can't seem to see where these low C0 to F0's are being stored. Mmmm... I'm clearly missing something.
Also, I can't seem to get the roll working on the Tam tams. The manual describes 'roll' or the tremolo symbol as an option but this triggers C6 which according to the Tams's matrix description pdf is unoccupied.
I must say its taken quite a while to understand the functioning of the Percussion library, its integration within Sibelius and how best to set it up within VEPRo. At present the only way I can have two percussion staves which freely allow cymbals to be triggered from both staves using Instrument Changes is by having a section of the score at the beginning in which both staves have a number of bars with sequential instrument changes in the order as they appear in VEPRo. In fact understanding this subtle issue would appear to also solve ALL the Violin 1/Violin 2 issues I and many others have been having. It's squarely a Sibelius issue of course (an issue in that they don't mention this in their manual) but perhaps its something worth outlining more clearly for all of us who've struggled with erratic behavior when identical instruments appear on different staves.
Anyway any thought or advice on this much appreciated!
