    Hi, Does anybody knows how to play vst instruments (like edirol orchestral) in a notation program like encore or sibelius or finale (since they don´t support dxi or vsti)???
    Is there a program to do it?? For example Rewire???

    Thank you, for any information anyone of you could give me

    Get something like Xlutop Chainer.

    Apparently Sibelius allows you to send MIDI out to external synths. In this scenario, think of you VSTi, within Chainer, as an external synth (well it is external to sibelius). The trick is to route the MIDI from Sieblius to Chainer, and Route the audio from chainer back to Sibelius (if its capable of that), or directly to your soundcard for monitoring.

    The specifics on how to do all this, I really can't help you with, as I'm not really familiar with the notation programs, and I've never done any windows MIDI configuration, but you should be able to work it out. Or maybe someone here could give you more help.

    I have an older version of Finale and the only way I've been able to accomplish what you're describing is to save the file as a midi file w/ seperate tracks for each staff. That's quite easy to do.
    Open it up with you sequencing software and then route it to your virtual instruments where you should have more success.
    I'm unsure if the newer versions address this or not. I'm going to be purchasing the latest finale in a few weeks and will let you know.

    Thank you guys, i will prove xlutop chainer, the other way is converting the archive to a Standard midi file but, this way you can get monitoring of what you are doing!! and this is specially important for those who writes orchestral music....
