About This Course
So..you’ve got yourself some lovely samples that use the Kontakt sample player!…well done you, as there are some stunning libraries available for this sample player.
You use your samples in your favourite DAW with no trouble at all…yet your stumped when it comes to Sibelius, as everyone knows its almost impossible to use Kontakt with Sibelius WITHOUT a Sound-Set, that mystical bit of software that enables all the articulations and dynamics to change with instructions in your score!
Well you can use Kontakt without a Sound-Set for your all time favourite samples in Sibelius Ultimate. Ok..its not as elegant as using a Sound-Set, but it’s perfectly possible and a lot of fun to do!
This short course will show you all you need to know to setup Sibelius Ultimate with Kontakt using Key-switch staves.
These key-switch staves will allow you to change articulations in your scores whenever you want (so long as your library of choice uses key-switches) and I’ll show you how to do this using Native Instruments ‘Session Strings Pro’ as an example.
As with all my courses, the video in each lesson shows how to do everything, but for this course I have assumed that you know how to input notes into a score.
