I've just purchased and installed Vienna Special Edition and I'm now trying to make sense of it.

I am using Sonar LE as my (temporary) sequencer, but I'm completely baffled about the whole process of using Vienna with Sonar. I can't seem to find any advice about how to load/insert/assign VSL instruments to Sonar so that it will play.

Should Sonar automatically 'see' Vienna? If so, my copy isn't doing this and I wonder why.

One other point. I tried downloading the Demo Midi File, provided by Vienna on the User Area. However, since trying it out, I can't seem to be able to get the original Vienna sound library back. Any advice?

Help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to first read the Sonar manual about scanning/loading VSTi's and where they need to be installed and make sure you installed the VSL files in the right place accordingly, i.e. "VSTplugins" folder for the software and sample content on some non-system drive. Sonar needs to know where to look for the VSL software file, I think the file name is "ViennaInstruments.dll".

Regarding the MIDI file issue and not seeing the sound library, not sure why a MIDI file would do that but, check the VSL Directory Manager and see where its pointing to for the sample content and make sure the samples are in fact in the place where they are listed in the Directory Manager. Check the actual location on the hard drive.

Can you run the stand alone VI with success? Loading instruments OK? Get sound?

Sorry but, it will help if you read the manuals first instead of expecting us all to hold your hand right from the get go. Forums are here to help someone AFTER they have tried a few things and failed.

Anyway, it will do you much good reading the manuals overall and it will help us help you better since you'll know what we're talking about.

You should know what I mean about VSTi, scanning for VSTi's, VI, Directory Manager....

Post back your findings,

Good luck!
