  • VE SE Plus Perf-Rep Legato Sample With Sibelius

    Hi all,

    I'm running a Mac OSX 10.6.8 with VE SE Plus and Sibelius 6.2. When I type 'rep' as technique text or expression text on a flute line the generic sustain sample remains on. All other samples seem to trigger correctly. I have re-installed the VE SE and VE Plus sound sets off the Vienna website and re-installed the house style. Playback is set to VE SE Plus and the playback dictionary has the word 'rep' in it set to trigger +rep.

    I'm not sure yet whether I have a corrupt sibelius and should re-install from scratch.

    This is getting very frustrating and any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks


  • Hello Simon!

    Please make sure that you really load the latest version of the "VE Special Edition PLUS" sound set. In order to do so, I recommend the following procedure.
    - Use the Finder and locate all "VE Special Edition PLUS.xml" files.
    - Delete these files
    - Download the latest version of the sound set at the following location:
    - Copy the downloaded file "VE Special Edition PLUS.xml" to the folder
    Users/your username/Library/Application Support/Sibelius Software/Sibelius 6/Sounds
    - In Sibelius load the sound set "VE Special Edition PLUS" (and not "VSL Ensemble Special Edition PLUS").

    I hope this helps.

    Best regards,

  • Thanks Andi,

    I should have mentioned I already tried what you suggested. It seems that many sibelius files are hidden for example I have created house styles that I can't seem to find anywhere. My house styles folder located in username\library\application support\sibelius etc only contains the downloaded vienna house style. I had to create a sound set folder within the Sibelius folder to copy the soundsets. When I go into hd\library\application support\ sibelius I see no Vienna sound sets and strangely no house styles folder. I am curious as to whether something was messed up following the upgrade from 5 to 6.

  • Hi Simon!

    Don't copy any files to HD/Library/Application Support/Sibelius...
    Only use the folder Users/your username/Library/Application Support/...
    It is normal that you may have to create the "Sounds" and the "House Styles" folders. The preinstalled House Styles and Sound Sets are not visible for users.

  • Thanks Andi

    I've ended up deleting all sibelius files from username\library\application support and from hd\libraryapplication support and have done a clean install. All seems to work fine now.
