Using Kontakt sounds in Sibelius Ultimate

Post by kingy75 » Tue Jun 23, 2020 11:14 am

I know this has likely been covered before but I can't seem to find anything right now.

Is anyone using Kontakt sounds successfully in Sibelius Ultimate? Or any other VSTs? Any tips for getting it to happen?

First, you need to have Kontakt included in your playback devices. Add how many different Kontakt plugins you will need to the column on the right and then save your playback configuration.

Then in the mixer, for each instrument, you click on auto or sibelius to change it to the number of the Kontakt vst you want to use.
You then press on the dented wheel for each instrument and configure Kontakt vst as you wish.

Actually, I'm a noob myself so I have a little more advanced question on this topic!

How can I use snapshots from Kontakt in Sibelius? For example, I'm using Kinetic Treats in Kontakt vst in Sibelius but can only use the main variation of each instrument. I can change the snapshot but it does not change in the playback sound.

Can anyone please help?
