    Product Description

    Sibelius has made a complete overhaul to how you buy your Sibelius software. Featuring a new model with monthly and annual subscriptions or a perpetual licence, all sofware updates will be available as and when they are ready rather than piling up for a big Sibelius"x" release. As a result you will now always be up to date with the latest tools and workflow enhancements to help you make music creatively.

    The Perpetual Licence

    The Perpetual licence offers customers a one-off fee to own a version of Sibelius licence forever. With this licence you will get 1 year of upgrades and support. After this first year you can decide to keep these updates and support going for a recurring annual fee, or you can keep your current version of the software. This is the cheapest way of owning Sibelius, but bear in mind that you need to keep this  going and once that annual upgrade date has been passed, you will then need to buy a new copy of sibelius to get the new updates. For example, you can't skip a year of updates and then pay the 2nd year to get all the updates you missed.

    What Is Sibelius

    For years gone by, Sibelius has been the go-to piece of software for music notation and scoring. As it evolves through the 21st Century, Sibelius is increasingly becoming a professional composition and music production tool as well thanks to the integration of high quality sound libraries (Sibelius 8 contains 36 Gigabytes of sounds!) and connectivity to other audio applications like Pro Tools, as well as sharing services such as SoundCloud.

    Avid Sibelius introduces more features to enable the audio representation of your score to be as expressive and dynamic as a performing musician. Being able to add these nuances into your score, and into the playback you hear, ensures that your compositions translate to live performances better than ever before.

    And of course, Sibelius' ability to produce musical score in almost any different style you can think of - classical or pop, formal or fun - ensures that it keeps its place atop the working musicians' pedestal as the number 1 application for notating music on PC and Apple Mac.

    Here's what Avid say about Sibelius

    Sibelius is the world’s best-selling music notation software, offering sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools that are proven and trusted by composers, arrangers, publishers, educators, and students alike. And with the new Sibelius, you can access the software in more affordable ways than ever.  And with the integrated Annotate feature, multi-touch gestures, Surface Pro 3 pen support, and more, Sibelius enables you to express your creativity in brand new ways, whether composing for a live performance, movie, television, media entertainment.

    Key Features

    Compose and edit

    Sibelius is the fastest, smartest, easiest way to create and edit musical scores. Sibelius delivers revolutionary, time-saving features like Magnetic Layout and Dynamic Parts—plus a powerful creative toolset including Flexi-time MIDI input, Keyboard and Fretboard windows, and a variety of other input options. With all this functionality and more, Sibelius empowers you to create incredibly complex scores quickly.

    Play, perform, and share

    In addition to creating and editing, Sibelius makes it easy to play back your scores with stunning realism. The massive included Sibelius Sounds library gives you immediate access to a wide range of professional-quality instruments. If you want even more great sounds, Sibelius supports VST and AU plug-ins, giving you access to third-party sample libraries. You can also sync Sibelius with other popular audio software—such as Pro Tools—via ReWire.

    Layout, export, and print

    Create beautiful, professional-looking scores easily using a full accompaniment of desktop publishing tools. Perfect text with tracking, leading, and other typography tools. Add graphics using drag-and-drop. And easily export publisher-quality scores as PDFs with just one click.

    Special notations

    Sibelius lets you produce scores so stunning, they’re virtually works of art. Slurs are the most beautiful and controllable of any program. Stemlets and beamed rests can be added and positioned instantly, as can arpeggio lines. Sibelius will even include cautionary accidentals automatically—helping you to produce performance-ready scores every time.

    Switch to Sibelius from Finale Switch to Sibelius from Finale

    Why switch from Finale to Sibelius? Not only can you write music faster and easier with Sibelius, as many top composers have stated, but the transition to mastering Sibelius is easy—not to mention we also offer a great crossgrade deal when you make the switch.
