Hi. I could'nt find any threads tackling this issue, so here goes.
This is probably a result of my inexperience, but I'm trying to make a recording of a piece I have written using GPO. I've done this before, sometimes successfully, sometimes less so, because things seem to be a little unpredictable. I loaded all the instruments into Kontact 2 player, in the order they appear in the score (Vln sol, vln 1, vln 2, vla, vc, bass), and then opened the piece in Sibelius. I pressed play, and and most of the parts were given their correct patches from the GPO sample library. However, there were some who weren't - the solo violin was being played by the double bass, and the double-bass part wasn't being played at all. I then tried loading each instrument into a seperate sibelius file, e.g. vln 1 on it's own in one file, vln 2 in another, etc. I then closed everything, opened Kontact 2, loaded a solo violin, and opened my solo violin part in sibelius. When I clicked play, there was no sound - it seemed the Kontact player was completely ignoring the midi messgaes from Sibelius. I checked to make sure the midi was set up correctly (which I assumed it was, as some of the instruments worked), and all was as it should be.
Sorry that was a bit long winded, but my question is, how can I ensure that the correct patches from the GPO library will be assigned to the correct parts in Sibelius?
(I'm using Sibelius Student, so the Kontact 2 player is recieving the midi through a virtual midi cable - midYoke. This works fine most of the time)
Thanks for reading,
