  • Manual for Percussion Library and Sibelius dynamics?

    Hi all,

    I have two question regarding my new library Vienna Percussion (Standard) and Sibelius 7.5

    1.

    I would like to find list of articulations for percussions to be used in Sibelius

    In the manual "VE_Optimizing_Sibelius_Playback_v2.7" it's said (regarding Percussion library):

     

    "The list of all included instruments and articulations is too long to be covered here, as this is the most complex sound set of all. You will find this list in a separate manual. "

    But I am not able to find this manual. Only thing I found is "VI_Percussion_Manual_v1", but it seems to not include articulations needed to be used in Sibelius.

     

    2.

    I am trying to make in efficent way on crescendo and diminuendo on rolls - (on instruments like bass drum, suspended cymbal).

    I already know, that this instruments doesn't have option to use Velocity X-fade by dynamics.

    I use now midi messages, 

    I have Vel.XF on/of set to CC12. 

    My questions are:

    a). How to turn of Vel.XF on/of (CC12) when I once turned it on by using midi messages? What midi commend should I use?

    b). Is it any way to use Sibelius dynamics instead of midi commends to achiveve creescendo/diminuendo?

    I have heard about plugin included in Sibelius called "Add Continuous Control Changes" (could it be helpful?), but I can't find it in Sibelius 7.5 plugins...

     

    ps. It would be so nice to have option Velocity Xfade on rolls of Suspended cymbals and Bass Drums (like it is on Timpani)... 

     

     

     


  • Hello szawadzkipiano!

    Here are the answers to your questions.

    1) The "VE Percussion" manual has been installed by the VSL Soundset Installer to your Programs (Windows) or Applications (Mac) folder under "VSL Sibelius Soundsets".

    2a) MIDI commands for CC12 from Sibelius would look like this:
    ~C12,0 (off)
    ~C12,127 (on)

    2b) The "Add Continuos Control Changes" and "Cresc./Dim. Playback" plugins can be found in Sibelius 7.5 under Play/Plug-ins.

    Best regards,
    Andi
