I am new to Sibelius. Is there a way to save a Kontakt 2 multi within a Sibelius 5 project so that it will automatically load upon opening? i have it saved within kontakt (16 orch tracks), but have to manually load it each time i open Sib.
You can't save it with the score but, you can save it with a playback configuration. Load the multi and then go to playback devices and save a new configuration. If you save a config while instruments are loaded, they get saved with the config.
Sib 5 was works best with soundsets which loads the sounds automatically. It's counter-intuitive to those used to sequencers but, once you have a good soundset, you don't have to manually load sounds for each new score. Sib does it all automatically.
Craig - thanks very much! That'll save me a lot of time as I often have to open and close Sib.( as I'm swapping between Cubase and Sib and need to designate to the soundcard which is the primary program to drive sounds).
