Playback Configuration Doesn't Activate Plugin

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7
  • EWQLSC Sound Sets
  • EWQLSO Sound Sets
  • LA Scoring Strings Sound Sets
  • Miroslav Philharmonik Sound Sets
  • Wallander Brass/Woodwinds Sound Sets


When selecting a playback configuration provided with a sound set, no devices are activated.


This indicates that the plugin is not installed in the directory Sibelius is scanning for VSTPlugins. See: Plugin Doesn't Appear in Available Devices for instructions to install the plugin correctly.

After the plugin is installed correctly, re-install the playback configuration .xml file(s) from the sound set package as its possible settings could be lost if the configuration is selected while the plugin is not available.
