Having recently spent the better part of a month digging around for my sibelius dics after purchasing a nice shiny new PC - I finally unearthed it, and after half an hour fighting with windows ******* vista (grrr!) I finally got it to install. Looks: Brilliant! I've got a nice new monitor, much bigger than my old one, so I can see loads of the score. Runs: Faultlessly, and much faster now I've got a better spec. Sounds: ...erm... ...like a half-cut penguin playing a kazoo.... Do all modern PCs ship with absolutely apalling MIDI synths or what? Honestly I was nearly sick. It sounds like the worst casio keyboard you can imagine. And the Percussion parts sound like one of those beat-box keyrings from the 1980s. Just horrible. So Question. How do I cure it? Does it mean I've gotta go back to my supplier and get a decent sound card whacked into it? or is there a software solution? When I go to my device manager I've only the one midi synth. Anyone any advice? Please? It really is putting a heck of a crimp on my writing as everything I write sounds simply appalling... (...which yes, my writing probably contributes to somewhat but not that much!
