Hi all!

I have a problem with setting up my Vienna Ensamble Pro with Sibelius.

I have installed all Vienna Instruments properly with Soundsets etc, but I would like to have also Choir from Kontakt inside Vienna Ensamble Pro instance, and I would like to hear it in Sibelius.

I want to have Kontakt sounds based in Vienna Mir Pro, that's why I need to have it based in VEP, and I can't add only Kontakt Player to "Playback Devices"in Sibelius.

 I can't find a way how to do it.

I placed additional VEP Event Input (4) for Kontakt library in "Playback Devices" in Sibelius. 

Sound Set is set up to : "none"

I made two "unused" places for choir (sopran and bass choir)

In Vienna Ensamble Pro Instance I added two channels for two Kontakt instances..

With Midi Ports: both 4

and  Midi Channels:  1 and 2


In Sibelius mixer I set up apriopriate channels and playback devices.

But Sibelius doesn't play back Kontakt sounds, but plays Flute sounds from Vienna sounds....


How can I make it works correct?

Hello szawadzkipiano"

Using the VEP Event Input is the correct way to use Kontakt alongside Vienna Instruments in VEP with Sibelius.

I would try the following things.

- Use the sound set "General MIDI" instead of "none", activate "Use manual sound set" and use the programs "Soprano Ensemble" and "Bass Ensemble".

- In Vienna Ensemble Pro set the MIDI Port for Kontakt to the number you have chosen in the VEP Event Input window and the MIDI channel to - Omni.

- Set the channel numbers for Soprano Choir and Bass Choir in Kontakt.

- If you want to have separate positions for the Soprano Choir and the Bass Choir in the MIR venue, you will have to add two Kontakt instances and use two VEP Event Inputs.

- Reset all output and channel settings that you have made in the Sibelius mixer by selecting (Auto) as output device.

I hope this helps.
