VST Plugins Integration

Postby jaxlrose » Wed Mar 13, 2019 4:26 am

Heya everyone,

I am looking to incorporate some third-party VST plugins with Sibelius. Is it possible to do that?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, but something of a minefield as you'll have to create manual soundsets for each VSTi sound library.

If you're talking FX plug-ins, I've not tried it.

Whatever you do, just remember that Sibelius doesn't work like a DAW, and the more you try to make it do so, the more it fights you!

Thanks for the update. One more question, is Sibelius compatible with VSTs on this list: https://techraver.com/best-synth-vst-plugins/ since most of them are either 32-bit or 64-bit.

Do I have to manually sift through each one of these plugins? Seems like a lot of work.

All versions of Sib since version 8 are 64 bit onlyand will only see 64 bit vstis.

The point made above about treating Sibelius like a DAW is a good one. Sibelius' main aim in life is score engraving. All DAW-like functions are add-ons and are not designed to do the work of a full DAW like Reaper or Cubase. If you want to spend months of your life trying, you can create your own soundsets but it is very laborious stuff.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2019.1, Windows 10, 8MB RAM, 7TB 7200RPM Storage, Note Performer 2, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others.
