Sibelius® is one of the world’s best-selling music notation software programs, offering sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools that are proven and trusted by composers, arrangers, publishers, educators, and students alike. And coming soon to Sibelius, you can access the software in more affordable ways than ever. Compose with a low-cost subscription. Own the software outright. Manage multiple copies with Sibelius network licensing. Or get started with Sibelius | First. The choice is yours. And with the integrated Annotate feature, multi-touch gestures, Surface Pro 3 pen support, and more coming soon, Sibelius will enable you to express your creativity in brand new ways, whether composing for a live performance, movie, television, media entertainment, or in the classroom.
Get easy access to world-class music notation
In addition to Sibelius being available to own and upgrade as before, you can now subscribe on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, enabling you to access the latest version of the software affordably at any time and pay only when you need it. And you’ll have access to all future Sibelius updates and upgrades as soon as they’re available through the included Avid upgrade plan, as well as to expert help.
Write music with a pen on a Surface Pro
Sibelius has been optimized for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, enabling you to add and edit notes quickly with just a tap of the pen, as well as play music in real time using the tablet’s onscreen keyboard and fretboard. Use the Surface Pen’s buttons to select, erase and edit your music. You can even drag the score around and resize objects while inputting notes.
Add notes and comments directly on the score
With the new Annotate feature, you can create reminders for yourself about music changes as you’re composing, or communicate edits and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. Draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, USB tablet, or Surface Pro 3 Pen. Circle items and write or type comments or instructions to arrangers, players, or students. Because annotations are grouped intelligently and always attached to the bar you add them to, you needn’t worry about losing your notes. Plus, annotations can be switched off so they don’t appear when printing.
Interact with scores using multi-touch gestures
If you’re working on a laptop with a trackpad or using a Surface Pro 3, you can quickly zoom in and out of your score by simply using a pinch-zoom gesture, making navigation and editing easier. You can even set predefined zoom levels to zoom in and out with a quick double-tap.
Scan and transcribe music with ease
Sibelius comes bundled with additional tools to enhance your music writing and arrangement workflow. PhotoScore & NotateMe Lite can read notes in sheet music and PDFs in seconds, enabling you to turn tangible compositions into editable digital scores. You can even write music on a tablet or laptop and convert your handwriting into professional scores. And with AudioScore Lite, you can create a score by transcribing music from a CD—or singing or playing an instrument through a microphone—and send it to Sibelius. Need more comprehensive notation scanning and the ability to transcribe audio from MP3s, MIDI, and more? Get (or upgrade to) the Sibelius + Ultimate Bundle, which features PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate and AudioScore Ultimate. (To upgrade an existing PhotoScore/AudioScore Ultimate product, visit this Neuratron page.)

Plus, you’ll get access to support, downloads, and your Avid Marketplace account once you do.
