Hi, everybody ... and especially Nickie Fønshauge ....
I begin teaching an orchestration course for the first time in my university next Tuesday and I cannot get GPO, Sib5 and KP2 to work (almost ready to roll back to Sib3 and KP1).
Here are the symptoms:
1.NI shows that everything is activated
2.GPO is registered
3.Sib5 is registered
4.KP2 is loaded and shows Garritan Personal Orchestra KP2 in the left side column
5.In Sib5, Devices, GPO, when I activate GPO to the left column, it appears, but, it’s sound set options do not show a GPO option
a.options are None, General Midi, General Midi 2, Yamaha XG6. In Sib5 pressing M brings up the correct mixer (the one with the pastel buttons at the top), however
b. In the Sib5 video tutorial, KP2 is shown in the Available Devices on the left as type “Kontakt.” On my screen, KP2 appears as type “VST plugin”
a.Looking in KP2, the channel shows that Port A is not available.When I play a newly created Sib5 score with devices set, instead of a flute and piccolo, I get GPO percussion sounds!!
7.When the Sib5 mixer (the newer one with the pastel buttons at the top) is brought up and I press the button for Garritan, it brings up the old KP overlay, not the fancier one for KP2.
Isn't that a mess??
Can anybody tell me what is wrong here? Nickie, your help in the forum seems to be especially well regarded ... may I hear from you?
