Sib. 7.1.3: Kontakt 5 not loading Sibelius 5 Essentials into Sibelius 7.1.3
Posted by phillip - 27 Dec 07:23PM (edited 27 Dec 11:31PM)
Hello. I've searched the Internet-at-large for an answer to no avil, and I could find nothing in forums either; if there is an existing post that might help, please point me in the right direction.

A couple of months ago, I upgraded from an HDD to an SSD. I launched Sibelius for the first time since cloning yesterday. I am using the last version of Mac OS 10.6, still using Sibelius 7.1.3, and Kontakt 5 for loading Sibelius 5 Sound Essentials. I pair both Sibelius 7 Sounds with two instances of Kontakt 5 in my playback settings, and use Core Audio (integrated) as my output device.

When Sibelius first launched, it could not find the appropriate files to load. I manually found the folder in which the Sib5 sounds were located, loaded them (the load window indicated success), and I started a new score.

Upon trying to test my sounds in the new score, I found that nothing loaded. I might get a note to start when using my MIDI controller, but nothing would sound. During playback, the mixer indicates sound but nothing played back.

I would often get a dialogue box when trying to click on a note or play the test notation back: "File Not Found. Please Make Sure That External Drives Are Connected." I don't load Sib5 Sounds from an external drive.

In the audio engine options, I notice that under Vitual Instruments and Effects Folder, the "Folders" button does not appear. I only have a "Rescan" button.

I tried several things to troubleshoot: when I click "show" in playback configuration, no instruments appear - Kontakt itself cannot find a library, but I can manually load individual .nkm and .nki files; I've uninstalled Kontakt and Sibelius and reinstalled both; I've reloaded the sound files upon launch; I've moved the sound files to Appliations Support/Avid/Sibelius 7/Sibelius Sounds and reloaded from there. Nothing works.

I had problems loading Sib5 sounds via Kontakt when I first got Sibelius 7, but eventually I solved the problem. Everything worked just fine before cloning to an SSD. Now, I can't seem to find a solution.

Any ideas? Thank you.

I recommend NOT relying on the macOS clone function to move installations from one disk to another.

Please install the Sibelius 5 Essentials sound library all over again: I suspect that Kontakt has lost the pointers that tell it which libraries are installed and licensed.

The "Folders" button is not a feature of Sibelius for Mac.

Thank you, Robin. That's a good idea. I'll probably need to download the Sib5 library again, unless I can find my old .dmg for the updated library.

On a related note, how would you recommend cloning in the future?

And thank you for the information about the "Folders" button.

Run the proper installers for the products you want to use on the new system.
