  • Sibelius 8 and 5.1 Surround Sound

     

    Hi all,

    I use Sibelius with Vienna Ensemble/MIR connect as Plugin. Sibelius only has steareo output.

    It there a way I can access audio directly from VE to mix in surround sound? Or is my only option to connect Sibelius to VE via MIDI?

    Kind regards

    Leif


  • Hello Leif!

    As Sibelius doesn't have surround outputs, you can either connect Vienna Ensemble Pro via MIDI or export your project to a DAW with surround outputs.

  •  Hello all,

     i have similar question, i just started with VSL bundle 1, i use sibelius 7.5 for my composition and now i want to learn how to produce my composition, my understanding that's DAW is better for sound production, what i can do in a DAW i can not do in sibelius apart from the surround sound? if this the only different, can any Vienna software give me that? if not and i need a DAW whitch DAW can take all the data from sibelius file including dynamics and articulations?

    Thanks and regards

  • Hello Asaad!

    Vienna Ensemble Pro comes with a surround plugin. However, this plugin can only be used in a host that offers surround outputs. All DAWs that I know of offer such outputs, but the notation programs I know of don't.

    Another difference would be that DAWs usually offer better tools for MIDI editing and mixing than notation programs.

  • Hello Asaad!

    All DAWs can do that. Export a MIDI file from Sibelius with your current playback configuration. Save your Vienna Ensemble (Pro) project. Then in the DAW software load the MIDI file and your Vienna Ensemble (Pro) project.
