  • SE Cymbals Won't Work in Sibelius

    I'm using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

    I created a Percussion instance under the Sibelius tab in VE Pro. I have piano, timpani, celesta, glock, marimba, all working fine, except the cymbals.

    Using the Sibelius 'cymbals' setup (for SE Sound IDs, not plus), it automatically sets up a single line staff. Only C6 is triggered.

    I don't care about cymbal rolls at this point, but it would be nice to at least be able to trigger various cymbal hits. And this really does not make sense, because the other SE instruments work fine using the same setup order in VE Pro and Sibelius.

    Sincerely yours,

    Dave Ramey


  • Hello Dave!

    Special Edition cymbals work fine with Sibelius here. At the following link you can find details on how to trigger cymbals with Sibelius.

  • I finally gave up. I instead got an instance of Spitfire Albion percussion to work with a five line staff in Sibelius, and it gave me a selection of 7 cymbals hits, but I still couldn't get the rolls to work included in that same Albion patch.

  • Hello Dave!

    It can have different reasons why articulation changes don't work as expected or instruments play on the wrong channel. Did you go through the Troubleshooting section of the "Sibelius Integration" tutorial yet? All possible reasons that come to my mind are listed there.

    If you can't find a solution there, please send the following screenshots to support@vsl.co.at. I can only help you with the Special Edition and not with the Spitfire library though.
    - Sibelius "Add or Remove Instruments" menu
    - Sibelius mixer
    - Sibelius Playback Devices menu
    - Sibelius Manual Sound Sets page of all loaded devices
    - Vienna Ensemble showing the loaded Special Edition instrument
