I have troubles with articulations in Sibelius 7 and Vienna Dimension Strings. What I did:

I selected in Manual Sound Sets Vienna patches (for Dimension Strings), I selected House Style (Vienna Symphonic Library, and loaded all settings) , in Vienna Ensamble I opened in VI Pro Sibelius presets ( Sib_DimViolins_All_PRO and so on).

Now when I try to write scores, some articulations works wrong.

for example:

when I use staccato, it turns good articulation, but always VI change patches from fe. All Violin to Violin solo.
And when I use commend "normal" or "ord." it turns articulation "FP".
Commends like " A8" ,"A6" works perfectly.
But I can't turn articulations like "molto vibrato", "espressivo" , it always turns "proggressive vibrato"
And any of SUL commends doesn't work. Also Portato.
Tremolo - single, double works ok. triple tremolo is fine, but is with harmonics (even if I don't write commend "harmonics"
pizzicato works ok.

I was trying also with commend "normal" to put it after some variations of articulations (I found this suggestions on forum)

I put normal above, and different articulations below. But it doesn't help unfortunatelly..

Could anybody help?

Hello Sebastian!

It can have different reasons why articulations do not change as supposed. Please check the following things:
- Do you use the Sibelius instruments (menu 'i') for the Dimension Strings that came with the "Vienna Symphonic Library" House Style? Only these instruments have the according Sound ID and will provide the correct switches. If you are not sure, go to the instrument menu ('i'), add the [VSL Dimension Strings] instruments and then cut and paste the content of your old staves to the new ones.
- If you have tried to make manual output or channel settings in the Sibelius mixer, please reset all outputs to (Auto).

Best regards,

Andreas Olszewski
