Will Kontact 2 or 1.5.3 work with sibelius 3.1.3?
I'm trying to get sibelius 3.1.3 to playback through Kontact 1.5. And I'm considering Kontact 2 as a solution.
I've got a Imac G5 1.8 ghz, 1 gig ram, OSX 10.3.8, Sibelius 3.1.3, Kontact 1.5 (sampler not silver or gold), built in G5 sound output (no sound card or device), and no keyboard or external midi equipment of any kind.
At first I couldn't even get sibelius to recognize Kontact. But I found this web site which describes how this is accomplished:
So now Sibelius can 'see' kontact 1.5. I can go in the mixer and select 'Apple IAC Driver Bus 1' as my play back device. I can even hit the 'test' button in sibelius's mixer and hear the sample I loaded in Kontact 1.5.
BUT! when I click on a note OR try to play back any score, the computer freezes completely, (beyond a force quit) and I hear this loud buzzing sound that only goes away when I turn off the computer by holding down the power button.
I'm so close to getting these things to work! What is causing the computer to freeze on playback? Is the loud sound a symptom of something? Perhaps a midi loop somewhere? HELP!
