Since VDL 2.5 has completely revamped all sample data, it will be necessary for VDL:2 users to receive a new DVD. There will be a very small DVD processing fee for existing VDL:2 users who registered prior to April 1, 2007. More information about upgrading will be available on the Tapspace website soon.

We’re working feverishly and making great progress. Stay connected to the Tapspace website for the most current information or [url=]join the Tapspace email list[/url] to be notified when it is shipping.

  Can I get somebody from tapspace to answer? When are the templates for sibelius 5 and vdl2.5 going to be available?
Hi Snaretech. I'm from Tapspace. I'm afraid I can not give you a definitive date for the Sibelius 5 templates. We are working on them and will make them available just as soon as possible. My apologies for the delay, but the new playback system in Sibelius 5 demands a time intensive re-design of the old templates in order for them to function properly. It's a challenging operation, and we want to ensure it works properly when it's delivered. Thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, the existing Sibelius templates will work just fine with VDL 2.5 and Sibelius 4.

Dude - seriously - chill out.  I can guarantee that you can't find a better, faster, more complete and mature software forum on the internet.  Getting ";snippy"; won't make you any friends on here.  Just be patient and ask your questions.  Believe me - Jim and his gang are working as hard as they can.  He DID just finish up with the DCI season and all that ya know...
