Well, I'm nearly there but after hours (alas, days and weeks!) of reading manuals, searching the internet and general playing around, I'm stuck...
I'm sure if someone could just spell out the final steps it would all make sense! Hopefully someone can help!
All I want to do is use Sibelius with my VSL samples, and when I input an articulation in Sibelius, it plays the corresponding VSL sample.
At the moment I'm using a combination of Sibelius 5, Kontakt 3 and the first edition of VSL.
I have created some instrument banks in Kontakt using the 'basic set' samples from VSL. But how do I get Kontakt to automatically recognise the different articulations in Sibelius when I write them (i.e pizz, arco, stac, long notes etc)
I can switch the samples using 'technique' or 'expression' coding in Sibelius (i.e. writing '~C2' for instance) and this works... but is very time consuming and to tell each instrument how to play each note in my piece would explode my brain I think!
I have tried using kontact scripts but this is where I get confused...
The 'matix alternation' tool posted here sounds like what I need:
