How to use the key switches from Sibelius in your Logic Project!

So, you have spent ages writing your magnificent suite in Sibelius Ultimate, perhaps using NotePerformer 3 as your playback sounds, but now you’ve finished and everything is perfectly engraved you realise you’ve made a schoolboy error!…you didn’t use those stunning samples from Vienna Symphonic Library!

Fear not…you can still use them..as Sibelius has this brilliant ‘Secret Squirrel’ option!

How can this be I hear you ask!..surely I should have spent the time making a brilliant playback configuration in Sibelius and set up a template so I can use the amazing Synchron-ized Special Editions whenever I choose (and perhaps you should…as it’s not difficult…and loads of people use templates in DAWs…so why not Sibelius!…you can find out how in the courses section of the site)

In today’s blog, I’ll show you how to export your score from Sibelius, using the sound-set that you can install for free from VSLs website, so you can write in in Sibelius using one playback option, export the midi and open in Logic using VSL

It’s brilliant to be able to do this…but a little tip for you!

NotePerformer is staggeringly good for the money they charge for it, and the way it enables you to write Divisi passages in your strings and brass ensembles mean that perhaps you’ve used these techniques in your score.

If your score uses Divisi, you’ll need to edit the midi a lot more than I do in this video blog, as I used one instrument per stave for this demo.

I’d love to know what you think about these features, or indeed anything Sibelius related, so please feel free to leave comments below!
