  • [SOLVED] cannot find Sibelius preset in VI

    Hi

    I just purchased the Alto Sax and dowloaded it. I am able to see the patch under 'Download instruments PRESET-Files' in VI PRO and am able to play it. However, nothing happens when I tried to load the Sibelius preset. 

    I am not sure if I am missing somethign here, like adding a path? How do I load the Sibelius present for this instrument?

    Any help appreciated!

    Best

  • Hello Anand!

    Could it be that you have loaded the wrong VI preset?
    The VI preset for Sibelius for the Alto Saxophone Single Instrument standard can be found under PRESET/Sibelius/Woodwinds+Brass 2.6/- Single Instruments/Single Instruments Standard. It's called "D58 Alto Sax".

    Does that help?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Andi

    yes this solves the issue. Thank you.

    I had loaded the Sax-02 Alto Sax L1 directly under the 'Woodwinds+Brass/Saxophones'/

    I am curious though, about what th other Sax preset is for. For example all along I was loading woodwind presets from 'Woodwinds 1/2' and the brass presets from 'Brass 1/2' and not from the 'Single Instruments' folder. In fact I see that these other instruments do not load at all from the Single Instruments folder. (i.e., nothing happens when I load them and the cells remain red) 

    I was wondering if the Sax is somehow treated differently or if I am missing something deeper?

    Thanks!

  • Hello Anand!

    The VI presets in the folder Sibelius/Woodwinds+Brass 2.6/Saxophones are for the Saxophones instrument collection, while the VI presets in the folder Sibelius/Woodwinds+Brass 2.6/- Single Instruments are for the Single instruments.
