Accordion in Sibelius sounds

Post by gonebon » Thu Feb 07, 2019 2:15 pm

Hi. I have a score with instruments played by Sibelius Sounds. But this library has no accordion. I have some good ones in kontakt VST. Is there a way to set kontakt only for the accordion and leave the other instruments with sibelius sounds?
Thank you

Read through Playback Devices in the manual for instructions on how to do what you want.

OTOH, Sibelius sounds uses the same patch for accordion, harmonica and melodica. And probably a few others. When you think about it, those instruments make their sound all the same way.

Or are you saying that there is no sound associated with accordion at all?

Thanks Bob! It worked.
Yes, there is a default for accordion but it sounds like a clarinet :roll:

Glad it worked.

It seems I misspoke. Sibelius uses reed organ for accordion (which doesn't sound much like an accordion). I think that might be because melodica doesn't have enough range.

Yeah, I think you're right. Melodicas have less range!
