    Optimizing Sibelius with Vienna Ensemble © 2009 Vienna Symphonic Library Optimizing Sibelius Playback with Vienna Ensemble  A guide to get more out of your scores By Andreas Olszewski / Vienna Symphonic Library    Optimizing Sibelius with Vienna Ensemble © 2009 Vienna Symphonic Library 2 Introduction Here’s a bit of general information on materials on our website, Sibelius software versions and the installation of Sound Sets. Material for Sibelius users on the vsl.co.at website At the following location you can find a video tutorial on how to work with Sibelius and Vienna Ensemble: http://vsl.co.at/en/211/1343/1348/1594/1245.vsl Sibelius Sound Sets can be found in the User Area under Overview/Needful Things. http://vsl.co.at/en/68/141/460/576/655.htm  Currently there are Sound Sets for the following collections available: ã Special Edition ã Special Edition PLUS ã Solo Strings I+II ã Chamber Strings I+II ã Orchestral Strings I+II ã Appassionata Strings I+II ã Harps ã Woodwinds I+II ã Brass I+II ã Special Woodwinds ã Special Brass ã Saxophones ã Percussion ã Download Instruments (all wind instruments) Please always check the readme file that comes with every Sound Set. It includes very useful hints. In addition to these Sound Sets, we offer Vienna Symphonic Library House Style files for Sibelius 5 and 6 for download at the same location. Software Please use Sibelius 5.2.5 or Sibelius 6.1, as the Sibelius team did a great job fixing playback bugs with these latest versions. Also make sure to use the latest version of Vienna Ensemble. You can find it in the Software Section of your personal User Area. Vienna Ensemble PRO will also work with Sibelius. The latest version can also be found in your User Area.    Optimizing Sibelius with Vienna Ensemble © 2009 Vienna Symphonic Library 3 How to install and use Sound Sets Copy the Sound Set file to your Sound Set folder. If there is no “Sounds” folder yet you will have to create one.  Windows XP: Documents and Settings\your username\Application Data\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 5\Sounds  Windows Vista: Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 5\Sounds Mac OS X: Users/your username/Library/Application Support/Sibelius Software/Sibelius 5/Sounds Copy the presets that come with the Sound Set to your  VSL Custom Data  folder. (  Attention:  this does not apply for the Sound Sets VE Special Edition and VE Special Edition PLUS.) In Sibelius, create a playback configuration and load Vienna Ensemble (or Vienna Ensemble PRO; for details on using Vienna Ensemble PRO please check the according manual) from the list of available playback devices. Then choose the appropriate Sound Set in the right-hand column. On the Manual Sound Sets  page check Use manual Sound Set   and assign channels and programs for every instrument. If you use instruments more than once, please also reserve the according number of channels for them. Then save your playback configuration.    Optimizing Sibelius with Vienna Ensemble © 2009 Vienna Symphonic Library 4 In Vienna Ensemble, insert as many instruments as you need. Set the channels and load the matrices that came with your Vienna Special Edition or Special Edition PLUS. If you are using one of our bigger collections, use the presets that came with the Sound Set. Then save your playback configuration in Sibelius.  Attention:  If you open a score with a previous version of a Sound Set and want to change to the new Sound Set, you may have to reassign the instruments in Playback Devices/Manual Sound Sets . How to install and import House Style files  What is a House Style file? The Sibelius House Style defines various things, most of which are layout related. For working with Vienna Instruments, two points are very useful: 1. Playback dictionary.  For some articulations, special keywords are needed in the Sibelius playback dictionary. By importing the Vienna Symphonic Library House Style, all these keywords will be included in the dictionary. 2. Instrument defintions.  This is mainly important for the VE Percussion Sound Set. It enables many percussion instruments to work properly with a large variety of articulations.
