Can I use the Sibelius 7 sounds in Logic?

Hi there,
Is there any way of using the Sibelius 7 Orch library (ideally as an instrument plugin) in Logic?

I'm afraid the short answer is "no".

So's the long one, come to that.

I don't think you're looking for what Rewire does?

I've never used Sibelius, but I imagine its sounds can be triggered via midi.

In which case, presumably you can use the Mac's internal midi bus (IAC) to route midi from Logic to Sibelius.

At a guess:

- switch IAC on in Audio/Midi Setup
- set Logic to output midi to IAC
- set Sibelius to receive from it

(if Sibelius works like Logic, and simply receives from all midi ports simultaneously, then the latter step won't be needed)

No. Sibelius is a score publisher, with SOME sequencer features. MIDI input is on a single channel, for the purpose of capturing notation from a keyboard or other MIDI controller.

You COULD prepare MIDI tracks in Logic, export a MID file and open it in Sibelius. Then Rewire Sibelius' audio output back to Logic. But I think this is far from what's required here.

Ah right. It sounds like we could route one midi channel from Logic. But, for orchestral arrangements, that might be a bit limiting...
