How do I play my Yamaha Clavinova CLP100 from Sibelius 4

I have tried to connect my Yamaha Clavinova CLP100 to Sibelius 4 but get no sound through the keyboard. I am using a USB Midi connector which responds to the test.

Sibelius 4 does not respond to the CLP100 as an input device either.

Get the plugs right!
by: Gerry O'Brien

I have now answered my own question. The midi in and midi out plugs on the USB audio device were incorrectly labled.

Once I swapped them over the keyboard played properly but as the range of sounds is limited on the CLP100 some voices don't play without resetting sounds.

I will experiment to see if I can match voices to the general MIDI set in Sibelius.

I have yet to try playing into a score but the input test seemed to work.
