I've finally decided to try out my favorite notation program with my favorite player to see how things go in that combination (trying to see how some of my tracks would sound directly from the score), but for the life of me I can't figure out how to connect the two.
I use MIDI Yoke for the connection, but K2 doesn't respond to the notes, there's no MIDI activity whatsoever, and I can't even figure out how to configure this, how to assign staves to channels, nor anything else.
I spent the last two days Googling to no avail.
If anyone can give me some pointers, I'd be very grateful.
Sibelius 5 has VST implementation. You should just be able to use K2 in Sibelius. I have the demo and I can use K3, Miroslav, Pianoteq, VSL Vienna SE, pretty much everything that's VST and AU plug-ins in Sibelius. I just ordered the competitive cross-grade since I finally realized how deep Sibelius is.
Yes, I know I can use K2 to as a plug-in (even though I don't even know how to configure that so it responds to MIDI messages), but I would like to use the feature to use it in standalone mode, for different reasons.
Do you maybe know how to do that? This is really important to me, so any help would be much appreciated.
Believe it or not, but as I've never used notation programs for playback before, I couldn't figure out where to configure the MIDI channels for the staves and failed to notice the drop-down menu for each stave.
It's working fine now, K2 responds to Sibelius properly, from what I can see.
I'm on XP x64, so I can't use Maple MIDI as it doesn't have x64 support yet, but so far MIDI Yoke is working fine.
I was wondering one thing, and seeing that you are quite experienced with sequencing from notation programs, you might know this - is there any way other than keyswitches to have multiple articulations from libs not pre-programmed for Sibelius (EWQL libs or SISS) respond to the same stave?
