The latest VSL Soundset Installer for Sibelius build now includes VI presets, Manual Sound Set programs and instrument definitions for our new instruments "Solo Violin 2" and "Solo Cello 2".

Just in case it saves someone else some frustration: after I installed the new sound set,  I was initially confused because when I tried to pick an instrument for a staff in Sibelius, I selected "Choose from: -> Orchestral Instruments" and looked at the list under "Strings". There is a long list of strings (Solo, Chamber, Orchestral, Appassionata, Dimension), but no "Solo Violin 2" or "Solo Violoncello 2". 

However, if I select "Choose from: All Instruments", Solo Violin 2 and Solo Violoncello 2 do appear and seem to work.

Hi,
  I cannot see any presets for Solo 2 violin and Solo Cello 2 in the preset menu Preset / Sibelius / VE_ Soundset_ Strings_ V2. In Vienna Instruments Pro.
  The new instruments do appear in the Preset -A - Strings - Preset Files menu of my VI- which means they are properly installed.
 
Ive also installed the latest version of Sibelius SoundSets from My VSL (ver. 1.0.110).
 
Ive attached two screenshots- one of my VIPro's preset menu (where the new instruments appear) 
 
and another with the Sibelius VE Soundsets menu- on which the new instruments do not appear.
 
Please help.
 
Many thanks, Regards

Hello Gil!

The VI presets for Sibelius of the Solo Violin 2 and Solo Cello 2 can be found under Sibelius/Strings 3.4/Solo Strings/Solo Strings 2. The folder "VE_SoundSet_Strings_v2" from your screenshot has not been installed by the VSL Soundset Installer and seems to contain old versions of the VI presets for Sibelius.

Hi Andi,

Many thanks! I see it now.

How can i remove the old preset versions from my VIP? Where can i find the files?

And also:

What are the differances between the different presets numbered "Strings 2.7  3.1  3.2  3.4" etc.?

Kind regards,

Gil

Hi Gil!

The location of the VI preset files can be set in the Directory Manager. Look under "Custom folder".

I would always load the VI presets with the latest version number. The main differences are additions of new instruments. Sometimes there are bug fixes or other improvements. If you dind't save any personal settings in the old folders, you can delete them.

Best regards,
Andi
