  • Where are all the Percussion

    Hi 

     

    I have just purchased the Complete Percussion, and am trying to set up Vienna Ensemble to work with the Percussion, instead of the Sibelius Percussion. In the Pro Event Input, I have selected VE Percussion (though I often have to deselect it because it shows SE 1 or some other set, and then after resulting it it's ok), and I'm trying to select the Program names to match the instruments I'm using, but there are not many options. 

    I attach a screen shot to explain. In the meantime I shall shut down my computer and restart. Perhaps the list of available instruments will be greatly increased. We'll see.

  • Having restarted and installed the most up to date Sibelius Soundsets, I still find that there is a limited list of Percussion instruments available to select. I had tried to find the VE Percussion Sound Set pdf before, but it didn't show up. I tried finding it again, and it has turned up. I have a lot of reading to do.

    Hopefully it will work now.

  • I got it working, though the Sibelius Mixer has caused problems again. I’ve had to select auto for most of the instruments to function, though I can’t get the Xylophone to sound, even though the channel for it in the mixer is working. Initially, when I allowed the mixer to choose the channels, none of the percussion sounded, and only the brass played.

  • I finally got all the instruments playing correctly for each trick, but Have been left with another problem. Inexplicably I am getting a percussion chord on the first beat of the music, when no percussion instrument is meant to play. Bizarre!!!

  • Hello Philip!

    I would check out the Troubleshooting chapter of the "Optimizing Sibelius Playhack" manual. There might be an error somewhere in your setup.

    If you need more help, please send you score and screenshots of your playback configuration to support@vsl.co.at. Screenshots of the Sibelius Playback Devices page, the Manual Sound Sets page and Vienna Ensemble might help help me to help you.

    Best regards,
    Andi
