I'm a writer and not a keyboardist, so I prefer to produce my music as Sibelius scores and then play it back according to rules I set up in Kontakt. I use LASS 1.5, but you can use 2.x, as well. https://plus.google.com/u/0/comm...es/111271689261263632311

I get the same realism from Sibelius sheetmusic playback as others get by using a sequencer and a MIDI keyboard. These are links to the tutorials:

I've used the playback techniques I've developed in my tutorial videos to re-record my violin sonata. The sound you hear at my Youtube channel, Novaclassica, is simply the raw sound samples as it issues from Kontakt, merely balanced off according to dynamics and given just a hint of convolution reverb to brighten it up. Here's the link to the violin sonata:


The next few videos to be released deal with string ensemble and divisi MIDI mock-up.
