I'm arranging for a bucket drumming group. They have created a set of ";Bucket Tenors."; They are set up just like a set up marching tenors, pitch wise and everything. They want me to arrange the music so it ";looks"; like standard marching tenor music. They also want me to use Virtual Drumline to create an audio file of my arrangement.
I'm running Sibelius 6 and the latest version of Virtudal Drumline on a Mac. I'm using the most current version of Snow Leopard.
How can I create realistic bucket sounds using Virtual Drumline, while still notating it like a set of marching tenors?
I also tried tuning DOWN the tenorline sound. It's a very different sound, but sort of falls into the ";bucket"; family.
Thanks a ton Bryan. Much appreciated.

It's not exactly ideal, but tuning the BassLine instrument up about 9 half steps (9.0 on the tuning dial in Kontakt or Kontakt Player) presents about the closest I think you might get. I didn't do much experimenting beyond that, but it might work for you.
That tuning won't save, so you'll just have to go in and set that whenever you open your project.
