    Question Newbie Q re: Kontakt + Sibelius


    I have not been able to find a concrete, step-by-step answer to this question:

    How does one use Kontakt in Sibelius?

    The sampler, not Kontakt Player Silver nor Gold. I know you can output a midi file from Sibelius, but I don't want to do that because I need to hear the samples as I'm writing.

    I know this is possible. Something about routing the midi output from Sibelius into Kontakt, but I have no clue how to pull this off, and I've done my research online. Is there a way to get Sibelius to recognize Kontakt, like it does the GPO Studio software? Or, is there any software that automates the midi routing?

    Thank you for any advice; I'm scoring a show that takes place in September, so I've got to get to work!

    I'm using Finale with Kontakt and Giga. You need a virtual Midi-channel to connect, e.g. from Marble sounds http://www.marblesound.com/ (if you're on Windows).
