I'm new to Sibelius. I purchased the program about a month ago. It has worked very well on my pc which exceeds required specs. I recently installed GPO Sibelius Edition but get no sound from Kontakt Player when I load my scores or compose test scores. The instruments do not load into the player, the controls (mod wheel, volumes) do not function and there is no sound as the score is played. I've checked the audio settings/asio drivers/sound card controls, but haven't found the problem. Kontakt Player shows up in the device list, but doesn't function. The Kontakt Silver Player in Sibelius worked fine with my sound card (Creative Soundblaster X-Fi) so I don't think the card or asio is the problem. I've emailed tech support. Any ideas? I'm looking forward to hearing GPO.
If I remember correctly, Sibelius looks for the GPO samples in a particular place. I had to copy the .nks files and move them to a folder inside Sibelius - it's a little hazy, now. Check the installation notes - I think they tell you what/where with regards this.
