Sibelius sound not working

Postby hiddenskies » Wed May 19, 2010 6:18 am

I'm having trouble with sound on sibelius. Sound working fine on al other programs, and the sibelius start-up music works. I have Sibelius 6 on a Mac.
In play- playback devices, i selected the sibelius sounds configuration but there are no active devices shown, only available devices, and i can't/ don't know how to move them.
Please help!

When i press play the green bar moves, but nothing is heard. Nothing has been muted & nothing makes sense.

Let me know if you know what's going on

"Available Devices" are only there to be added to an existing or new Configuration. When you choose from the Configuration drop-down list, devices should appear in the right-hand column (Active Devices). For instance, if you select the Sibelius Sounds Configuration the right-hand column should show:

Sibelius Player . . . Sibelius Sounds . . . Essentials

If this doesn't happen, something very wrong with your Configurations, since in Sibelius 6 you ought not to be able to delete or edit the default configurations (General MIDI Basic, General MIDI Enhanced and Sibelius Sounds).

Try starting a new Configuration (click on New) and add some Available Devices (click "Activate") to the new Configuration, then Save.
