Sibelius 6
Sibelius 6 is a giant leap forward in notation software”with amazing new-to-the-series features and improvements for educators, students, composers, arrangers, copyists, and musicians of all kinds.

No more tidying up scores
Sibelius' Magnetic Layout takes care of almost every detail of score layout for you”so effortlessly, you'll hardly notice. As you write, it gives everything just the right amount of space and avoids collisions”producing beautiful results. This one feature saves you up to half your writing time.

Track changes and compare versions
Have you ever written something better the first time around? Siblius 6's Versions keeps track of revisions to your score, lets you look back at earlier versions of it, and see what changes were made since. Collaboration becomes a joy, and you can even add sticky Comments to leave notes for yourself, or others.

Conduct your scores
It's time to take to the podium. Live Tempo lets you conduct the playback of your score to produce a nuanced, musical performance. Simply tap a key on your computer keyboard, MIDI keyboard, or foot pedal, and Sibelius follows your beat.

Great new sounds”in no time
High-quality playback now needs no set-up at all”just hit the space bar, and Sibelius 6 plays back using amazing sampled sounds. High-quality playback is more seamlessly integrated than ever, thanks to technology from Digidesign's AIR team.

Sync with sequencers and DAWs

With Sibelius 6, you can add a live performance to an audio recording, or sync a recording with your score playback. You can do all of this and more thanks to ReWire support, which lets you sync Sibelius playback with products like Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, GarageBand, and more.

Beautiful Keyboard & Fretboard windows

If you prefer using a keyboard or guitar to notation, these beautiful new windows are ideal. Simply click on the keys or frets to input notes and chords”or 'play' your computer's QWERTY keys just like a piano. They're great for teaching, too.

Easy chord symbols & guitar diagrams
Chord symbols and guitar chord diagrams can now be created quickly from your computer keyboard, MIDI keyboard, or MIDI guitar. Sibelius 6 also features many enhancements and extra notations, including guitar scale diagrams.

Unrivalled pro engraving

Sibelius 6 lets you produce scores so stunning, they're virtually works of art. Slurs are beautiful and controllable. Stemlets and beamed rests can be added and positioned instantly, as can arpeggio lines. Sibelius 6 will even include cautionary accidentals automatically”helping you produce performance-ready scores every time.

Sell your scores around the world makes it even easier for you to earn an income from electronic sales of your scores around the world. Or you can just share and exchange scores with fellow musicians and Sibelius users.

Sing in music!
People have been asking for years about inputting music from a microphone”and AudioScore lets you do just that. Developed by Neuratron, creators of PhotoScore, AudioScore lets you input music into Sibelius simply by singing or playing an instrument. Then hit a button to put the results into Sibelius.

    If you qualify, you MUST buy this crossgrade!

    By Musetek

    from Brattleboro, Vermont

    First, with the music community near me, Sibelius is the standard, and being compatible is essential. Next, the application is amazing, powerful and deep - no cutting corners here! Then, the value is incredible, as this product often qualifies for a promo from this retailer that can shave up to another 15% off. Then, Avid's customer service is great; I bought my V5 copy a couple of months before V6 came out, and they upgraded me for free! I could not be happier with this purchase!
