Bottom Bass Left Hand Hits

Hello all,

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?

Thanks to all for your help.
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.

Hey guys

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.
