Sibelius Sounds in My Cloud external (ethernet) drive?
Posted by jimlapbap - 02 Mar 08:05AM
Hello,

Sib 2018.1
MacBook Pro, High Sierra 10.13.3

I figured I could install Sibelius Sounds on an external drive that's on a local network. I have an 8TB WD My Cloud drive that transfers about 40 MB/s to my computer. This isn't much slower than the USB 3.0 external drive at 60MB/s, which I used before.

However, when I indicate that drive as my location for Sibelius Sounds, Sibelius accepts it, asks for my administrative password to change the location, but when I load Sibelius Sounds in the program, there is no sound.

I checked this site:

http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/How_To/Installing-and-using-Sibelius-Sounds-across-a-network

But it seems to apply to a network computer rather than a drive on a computer as it requires installing on a system drive.

The sound is working fine, switching to MIDI plays back normally.

Had anyone had success using an external drive like this to host Sibelius Sounds?

Thanks for any information.

1. What, precisely, is the macOS "volume name" of the "My Cloud" drive when it is connected to the Mac?

2. Using the Finder (not Search or Spotlight) do the following:
- pull down the "Go" menu and select "Go to Folder";
- in the box, type precisely:

/Library

and click "Go";
- in the System Library that opens, open sub-folder "Application Support";
- in "Application Support", open sub-folder "Avid";
- in "Avid", open sub-folder "Sibelius Sounds";
- in "Sibelius Sounds", open sub-folder "Libraries";
- in "Libraries", right-click on the icon for file "Sibelius 7 Sounds.xml" and select "Open With" => TextEdit.app;
- take a screen-shot of the TextEdit window displaying this file, and attach the screen-shot here.
