  • Solo Strings I & II patches for Sibelius

    Can anyone help?

    I've purchased Solo String Bundle and Chamber String Bundle hoping to use Sibelius "VE Strings" sound set. (I thought I was buying the complete licence for those groups of samples).

    I also own SE PLUS. VI Pro. VE Pro

    In VE, Sibelius-patch "Strings 3.x" are Red (unavailable).

    In VE, Sibelius-patch "Chamber Strings" are availabe but play the wrong articulation.

    SE 5.2 Solo and Chamber work fine with SE PLUS sound set loaded in Sibelius.

    I'm using one instance of VE.

    VSL for Sibelius has been updated.

    My fear is it's not possible to use VE Strings without String Complete!

    Am I mistaken?

     

    OS 10.10.5


  • The VE Strings sound set will work with whatever VSL string libraries you have installed.

    Make sure the instruments work corectly in VI standalone befure using in Sibelius. You want to get things working step by step.

  • Thank you for your reply.

    Yes, all the new solo I & II strings and chamber string bundle works well outside Sibelius, as stand alone and in Logic.

    The problem starts when using the Sibelius presets in VI.

    (SE PLUS works well in Sibelius with SE PLUS sound set and VI set up correctly.)

    Again, I fear that Sibelius "String 3.X" presets are only for "Complete Strings"!


  • Hello John! You don't need the Strings Complete bundle to use Solo Strings and Chamber Strings with Sibelius. Did you check the troubleshooting chapter of the "Optimizing Sibelius Playback" manual? In most cases you should be able to find a solution there. If you need more help, please describe in detail what you have done (playback configuration, loaded sound set, loaded VI presets, instruments in Sibelius). Best regards, Andi

  • Thank you Andi

    That was the information I needed to know to carry on working on the problem!

    All the library seemed to download first time but obviuosly there was a problem.

    I have downloaded Solo I and Solo II once more and all the red boxes have disappeared.

    I've read "you" a great deal over the last few weeks and admire your dedication to the VSL cause. Congratulations.

    Many thanks

    John
