This is probably - read, hopefully - a simple question to answer for all Sibelius users here, so here goes (and apologies if it has already been answered, but I did search before posting... honest!).
I have the Sibelius 5 demo, and now have enough pennies to buy the full version (until now I've been getting all this to work with Sibelius Student Edition, via Midi Yoke). I've been trying to find out how to set up Sibelius 5 with GPO, without the need for Midi Yoke; in other words, doing everything in Sibelius without using GPO as a standalone application in Kontact 2. Unfortunately, the tutorials for this are outdated and want me to load GPO studio, which must be part of an older release of the library. I did some research, and as far as I can tell, for Sibelius 5, I need to select GPO in the Sound Set drop-down box under Play > Playback Devices > Manual Soundsets. I most certainly would have done this, had GPO been listed in the box. Unfortunately for me, it wasn't.
I think this may be something silly and resultant of my inexperience - perhaps I need to paste a plugin into the plugins folder, but I'm really not sure. If someone could help me here I'd be very appreciative indeed. In fact I couldn't be happier unless it was christmas...oh!
Thanks for your time, and to all, a very merry christmas indeed.
Get it, Tom? You don't first insert GPO--it needs to be nestled in an audio engine. That's Kontakt. So in the full Sib 5, that's what you get - Kontakt--select either the Sound Essentials which includes the basic GPO instruments, or the full GPO.
