I am about to embark on writing a show with a woodwind/brass arranger who uses NotePerformer for his instrument playback. In order to streamline the process of passing scores back and forth in Sib7.5 I would like to [i]NOT [/i] have to copy and paste into a different Sib file to use VDL for Percussion playback.
Does anyone know of any VDL and NotePerformer templates that exist? If not, does anyone know how I can merge to the two soundsets to create my own template.
Create your score with your instruments, and have the wind arranger add his staves on to that. NotePerformer doesn't need a specific template. It's designed to recognize the common markings and play back correctly.
A quick note though, the wind arranger needs to own a copy of the template from The Write Score I believe. Otherwise, you'd be basically giving him a copy of the template for free by creating your file first.
