    Is it erroneous that I don’t see any Presets for my Vibraphone “standard library” in VI Pro? Matrices & Patches are accessible under “Download Instruments; Percussion+Co; 21D Vibraphone” …But in the Presets category, under "Download Instruments", I see “Brass” and “Woodwind” subcategories containing their respective instruments, but no "Percussion+Co" or "Mallets". (I see only my "Celeste" under the "D. Percussion; Mallets" Preset category ...which seems questionably mis-categorized, but that's something else.)

    By doing a search I found a Vibraphone Preset under the “Sibelius” category (I have the most current Sibelius presets installed).

Hi Itchy, 

Those "smaller" instruments were all added to the "Mallets" Preset. Individual instruments are available in the Matrix Browser.

Thank You, Paul. If I understand correctly, in VI Pro, I should load the Vibraphone instrument via the Matrix Browser.
...And, if I upgrade to the full Vibraphone instrument, will it’s Preset then be listed under the principal “D. Percussion; Mallets" Preset category? Or will I still load the Vibes via the Matrix browser?

Hi Itchy, 

Yes, load the Matrix if you only need the vibraphone, this will be the same in the Full Library.

Paul, have you really called a vibraphone "small"?!?

(I still remember when I had to carry a marimba up to a steep hill...)

@PaoloT: Hehe, I was waiting for that. 

"Small" in terms of articulations, of course. 
And you should only carry these instruments DOWN a hill, if possible 

Best,
Paul
