Sibelius with Annual Upgrade Plan

The world’s best music editing software has been upgraded with an array of new features.

Renowned by professionals worldwide, Sibelius provides an exceptional experience in writing, composing and editing musical scores. The new version 8 is better than ever and provides you, the artist, with more options for creativity as well as improved operation. Trusted by composers, arrangers, publishers, students and educators, Sibelius will escalate the way you make music and provide sophisticated editing options for arranging scores so that they are performance-ready at all times.

Hands-on music writing experience with Surface Pro

One of the most important new features in the Sibelius 8 is its integration with Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet. You can now edit and add notes with just a tap of the pen, enabling you to quickly note down your ideas and providing a more interactive experience of writing music. Using the tablet’s onscreen keyboard you can play music in real time, perfect for composers and musicians on the go, enabling you to create great musical scores anywhere. Surface Pen’s buttons let you also select, edit and erase your ideas and, for ease of operation, you can resize the components and drag the score around while inputting notes.

Quicker, easier operating experience

Set up of your Sibelius 8 is much easier compared to the previous versions. To get started, all you need to do now is simply sign in to your Avid Master Account to activate Sibelius on any computer – it is that easy! Windows users will be pleased to know that Avid have updated the interface for stunning clarity as Sibelius 8 includes support for high-resolution displays. If you are working on a computer with a trackpad or on the Surface Pro 3 tablet, you can navigate through your scores, zoom in and out using simple multi-touch gestures for much faster, easier operation. But that’s not all! The brand new Annotate features lets you create reminders about music changes while you are composing – this is a great way to discuss edits and collaborate with others. Adding edits is simply and easily done using your mouse, trackpad, tablet or Surface Pro 3 pen. You can circle certain parts of the score and write comments to the players, and, they can also be switched off and on again to make sure you don’t lose them.

World class, professional music composing and scoring software at your fingertips

Of course, there is no match for Sibelius when it comes to other notation softwares. Its Magnetic Layout feature is seriously incredible, intuitively taking care of every detail of score layout and making components like accidentals stick to notes, preventing other objects from colliding with them. This saves a huge amount of time and gives you professional results without additional effort so you can create scores that are a true work of art quickly and easily. Timeline window presents you with an entire structure of your score, regardless of how large or complex it is for accelerated navigation through parts, individual editing and playback. You have a huge variety of instruments at your disposal from the Sibelius Sounds library that possess stunning realism and expression. If you need even more instruments, Sibelius also supports VST and AU plug-ins so that you can access third-party sample libraries or, alternatively, sync Sibelius with another music software such as ProTools via ReWire.

Great additional tools to enhance your experience

For an even better user experience, Sibelius includes Photo Score and NotateMe Lite tools which are able to read notes in PDFs and handwritten sheet music, turning them into editable musical scores. In addition to this, you will also receive AudioScore Lite which is extremely helpful in transcribing music from an MP3 or MIDI recording as well as singing or playing through a microphone. Now there are limitless ways of arranging and editing musical scores with these time saving, convenient tools.

Full support and regular upgrades for an entire year

Finally, the greatest thing about the new Sibelius 8 is the amount of support and help available to you for an entire year after activating the program. With each Sibelius you will now receive 12 month upgrade and support plans, which means you will be entitled to any new versions and software upgrades released during the 12 month period. During this time you will also receive a 24/7 support via unlimited email and one phone case per month. This is one of the many amazing benefits of the new Sibelius 8 making you feel confident in using the software whether you are a novice or a professional.
