Santur Sound

Postby hankNoorani » Fri Dec 28, 2018 8:10 pm

Sibelius has the option of using Santur (Santoor) sound for string tuned-percussion instrument. I have repeatedly selected this option, but the score still produces a Harp sound for Dulcimer. How do I make the change of sound? Thanks.

This is because Sibelius is primarily for notation, and not playback. You can create a score that includes most any instrument. As you have discovered, there just aren't proper sounds for them all. That being said, Sibelius does include a lot of sounds.
