Hello community, I painfully edited VSL's own percussion sound set and separated every instrument into its own mapping/sound ID. It seems to be the only way you can write a percussionist staff that can play all the different instruments and have them play back correctly. So if use this sound set all you need to do now is tell Sibelius what instrument is in what channel.

 

Summary: basically everything that was under the drum map "percussion" now has its own name and ID.

Hi Steve, apologies but the Soundset you downloaded had not been renamed inside the script, so Sibelius was reading both the original and this edited version which played havock with the configurations. Please make sure you download the updated version above and when you open it in Sibelius it should be the one that it's clearly marked (EDITED).

As for your question, if you're on a Windows machine then it should be in this path: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Avid\Sibelius\Sounds but it will depend on which version you have, so you could just go to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ and see if first you have a folder called Sibelius, if not go to the Avid one and look there. If you have more than one, do yourself a favour and put everything called "Sound" into the folder called Sibelius without a number since Sibelius tends to look in multiple locations and it can get quite messy.

If you're on a Mac, I'm sorry I can't help you, but the info should be easily available in the VSL Soundset manual.

Let me know if you need more help.

C.

Hi there clure,

 

no problem. Thank you for the hard work in doing this - I'm sure it will be helpful to me. I haven't installed it yet, but I'll put it in the folder you said when I do.

Thank you kindly for getting back to me on this.

 

best,

 

Steve

Hello Clure

I´ve been using your edited percussion soundset, and it just workds splendidly. But in my current project, im now situated with using roto toms, and it´s not on the instrument list on the "edited percussion".

Is there anyway to get around this?

Best regards

Hi Søren, I'm afraid I moved to Dorico over a year ago and I don't even has Sibelius any longer. I know you'll find it hartd to believe, but I don't even remember how any of this works... 

However, I downloaded the XML from here and had a quick look at it and there's definitely roto toms definition, for example:

<DrumSound Name="Roto Tom 1" SoundID="unpitched.drum.low.tom-tom.rototom" Pitch="48"/>
      <DrumSound Name="Roto Tom 1 left" 

So it should be there somewhere, but like I said, I don't have any of the required software to check this any longer. I don't remember how this is suppose to wortk at all...
