Great program for notation and compositional purposes in nearly every musical genre: from singer-songwriter to rhythm sections, rock, classical etc. Plug-ins and instruments already on the program are useful for playback purposes and lending an idea of what you are composing. The keypad and shortcuts on this program are extremely useful and can save you hours of time! They are very easy to learn and come in very handy for getting your ideas out quickly and efficiently. You can export and import midi and audio, the playback has a mixer on it so if you wish to tweak instrument sounds or add effects it is possible, you can save different versions of your work which is very useful if you wish to see the differences between the last version of your composition and the current version- without having to re-write or print out your previous work for comparison, the program rarely stalls (if it does it is extremely rare), and there is now Photoscore and Audioscore transcription which can also be useful for example, if you only have printed music and need to scan it and edit it! The program is essential for anyone from amateurs, beginning composition/theory students, music teachers, and professionals. It is very easy to learn how to use and very user friendly. Emailing yourself files of your work on Sibelius is also great because the files aren't large and don't take up a lot of space so they send quickly and open with (your choice) of whatever settings you had on Sibelius for that composition. Overall a great program, with a wealth of uses, easy to learn and user friendly, a lot of useful features, and if you work in previous versions of the program and open up your work into Sibelius 6-it will open and you can continue to work on your compositions!
Sibelius 6 is an incredible music engraving software, allowing for excellent quality scores to be produced more efficiently than ever before. Sibelius 6 is huge upgrade from Sibelius 5 mainly due to the magnetic layout feature, which automatically adjusts the positions of dynamics and text to avoid "collisions." It doesn't work completely flawlessly, but it is still a huge time saver. I recently prepared full orchestral scores and all the parts for 105 minutes of music with Sibelius 6, and there is simply no way I could have met the deadline without the tools and efficiency that Sibelius 6 offers.
