Sib. 6.x: greyed out in playback devices
Posted by William W.E. Scott - 01 Sep 07:17AM
My keyboard won't record. It registers on the input device as playing. But when I go to the play playback options playback devices, my keyboard is there but greyed out and I am unable to choose it as my keyboard.
If I reinstall Sib would I lose all saved work?

For input devices, go to File > Preferences and then the Input Devices page, and check that everything is set up as it should be there. Refer to 'Input Devices' in Help > Documentation > Sibelius 6 Reference for more help.

It sounds as if this is a "Configurations" issue in "Playback Devices". The Playback Configurations that ship with Sibelius are read-only and cannot be changed (for instance, by the addition of your MIDI device).

To use a MIDI device as output, you need to CREATE a new "Configuration". Then, with that new Configuration selected, your MIDI output device will no longer be greyed out in the left-hand column, and you can move it over into the right-hand column.

Many thanks. It was the USB lead. I use a long lead with a connection. It was slightly loose. many thanks for your help.
