I'm not sure if this belongs in general discussion or technical. I searched both and didn't find it.
First of all, I just got VDL 2.5 and Sibelius 5.1, and the integration is outstanding! Congrats to Jim and the gang on making a great thing even better.
Anyhow, on to my issue...
When I enter left hand hits on the bottom bass using my midi keyboard (the f natural key), Sibelius notates and triggers the drum above (bass drum 5 of the 6 drum set). The right hand bottom bass hits (f#) work fine. Has anyone encountered this problem?
I looked at the mapping in the Template and somehow the Drum 6 LH Hit entry for the [b]BassLine Manual LITE[/b] instrument is just not there anymore. The [b]BassLine Manual[/b] instrument is still good though.
I won't be able to do anything about it until early next week. If you feel up to trying to add the note back in yourself, dive on in. Hint: make it look like the full version.

you are not alone...I encountered this problem as well. I just ended up using all RH hits in the bottom BD part. I've got the same software setup: VDL 2.5 and Sibelius 5.1, using a M-Audio Oxygen 8, 25 key as my midi controller.
The notehead mapping says that the bottom BD (drum 6) is using notehead #31 for the LH. (All BDs are RH = notehead #0 & LH = #31). I can't remember if I tried to insert that notehead manually or not, but you might give that a try and see if it works.
