Sibelius has the ability to automatically load Virtual Drumline instruments into hosted AU or VST plug-ins of Kontakt Player allowing for a seamless way of integrating VDL into Sibelius. This functionality was first introduced in Sibelius 5 as a part of its ";Soundworld"; technology.
Depending on the version of Sibelius you're using, only certain versions of Kontakt Player will be recognized as a ";Kontakt"; style VST or AU plugin. If Sibelius doesn't specify it as a ";Kontakt AU or VST"; in its Playback Devices window, it will not be able to auto-load your VDL instruments.
