VDL and Sibelius 7 Sound Issues

Hello. I am using the following equipment:

MacBook Pro
Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8
Sibelius 7.1
VDL 2.5
Kontakt Player 5

I am having issues with playback. I am using a write score template and have followed the instructions on installing VDL. I am finding the instances of Kontakt player that I need in my playback devices and the sounds are showing up in my score. The issue that I am running into is that some sounds are extremely soft (almost inaudible) while others are playing just fine. For instance, my vibraphone sounds are nice and loud while my marimba, drum set, and marching snare sounds are all extremely soft. Any thoughts or ideas on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Matt,

I'm guessing you're running an older version of the VDL 2.5 library that exhibits these problems when running them in Kontakt 3 or higher. If you update to the latest version of the VDL library (currently 2.5.5) that problem should probably be resolved.

The alternative would be to continue using Kontakt Player 2, however that won't likely be supported in your version of Sibelius.
Hi Jim,

That worked perfectly. Thank you so much for your help!
