    Express yourself with Sibelius
    Create beautiful, captivating scores more quickly than ever before with the world's best selling notation software.

    Edit scores more easily
    Thanks to popular demand, you now have more flexible layout and composition possibilities to best present your score. Work faster with the updated Inspector interface, which now offers more flexible access. Change staff sizes by system, individual instruments, and groups of instruments to create a clear and perfect looking score. And gain fine control of the new staff sizes in Engraving Rules.

    Make music easier to learn
    Music doesn't have to be so black and white. With the latest Sibelius, you can now colour individual notes and/or chords, giving students a more enhanced and visual way of learning to read and write music notation.

    Get better rest
    Inserting rests into your score is now easier and more intuitive. Whenever you add one, Magnetic Layout automatically repositions the rest to align optimally with the phrasing of preceding notes, no manual fixes required. Create easy-to-read scores faster than ever. Plus, you can now move rests and notes horizontally in your score.

    Re-spell and repeat with ease
    It's now possible to have the same pitched note display a different accidental in any part compared to the rest of the score. You can also create concise first, second, and third time bars that appear and play back exactly like you'd expect them to, eliminating manual correction. Plus, all time signature changes now appear after the barline but before repeat barlines by default.

    Share your score
    Want to share your composition with a colleague, client, or friend? You can now export your composition as an MP3 audio file for faster file transfer that won't hit email size limits.

    Write music with a pen on a Surface Pro
    If you own a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, you can now add and edit notes quickly with just a tap of the pen. This makes it easier than ever to fine tune your compositions on the go. Plus, you can play back your music using the tablet's onscreen keyboard and fretboard.

    Add notes and comments
    Sometimes you have a great idea, but you forget to write it down. Then the next thing you know, your idea is gone. The new Annotate feature allows you to add notes directly on the score. You can create reminders for yourself as you're composing, or communicate edits and feedback to others.

    Use multi-touch gestures
    With Sibelius, you can create scores faster than ever before thanks to an advanced user interface. You can navigate and edit even the most complex scores quickly using multi-touch gestures on your laptop trackpad or Surface Pro 3.

    What's new in Sibelius

    Work faster with the updated Inspector

    With the new, improved, and enhanced Inspector window, accessing, editing, and controlling elements in your score is easier than ever. You can now dock the Inspector window to the left of your score, or have it float freely, for always-available access. Plus, you can now style and align text right from the Inspector's Text pane.

    Change staff sizes by system

    Nee more flexible and precise control when engraving your score? You can now set the staff size of individual instruments, a set of staves, or an entire page to be any of the four sizes available in Sibelius. You can change the size of a staff throughout your score, or resize smaller portions. Plus, with new features in the Inspector, you can take full control of the layout of your score.

    Create custom staff sizes in your score

    Thanks to a popular suggestion from our Sibelius users, you can now change the individual staff sizes of independent instruments and groups of instruments. This gives you more flexible composition possibilities to get the best layout for your score. You'll also find new Engraving Rules options, providing you with fine precision control over the layout.

    Make music easier to learn

    Music doesn't have to be so black and white. With the latest Sibelius, you can now colour individual notes and/or chords, giving students a more enhanced and visual way of learning to read and write music notation.

    Share your music more easily

    Want to let your client, colleague, or friends hear your latest composition? You now have the option of exporting your score as an MP3 audio file, making it faster and easier to send your music through email or over Skype, or even posting it across all of your social network channels. Not only do you have control over the bit depth and sample rate, Sibelius will automatically generate ID3 tags from your Score Info dialog.

    Give it a rest

    Inserting rests into your music just got a whole lot easier. Now any time you add one to a measure, the newly enhanced Magnetic Layout tool automatically repositions the rest to align optimally with the phrasing of your preceding notes. Rests in multi-voice staves also automatically reposition to avoid collisions. Not only does this eliminate having to manually fix note and rest bump-ups, it makes your score much easier to read. You can also move rests and notes horizontally with new keyboard shortcuts, eliminating cutting and pasting music.

    Get perfect repeated endings

    If you've ever written music with first, second, and third time bars, you may have spent some time fixing lines that Sibelius created a bit too long. That's not the case anymore. With the layout improvements, you can now create multiple time ending bars that appear and play back just the way you expect them to. And, by default, time signature changes now appear after the barline but before repeating barlines.

    Compose and edit

    Create with unrivaled compositional tools

    Whether you're well versed in writing music notation or prefer to use a keyboard, guitar, or your voice to enter notes, creating scores has never been easier. Save tons of time with unique tools such as Magnetic Layout, which takes care of almost every layout detail, and Dynamic Parts, which automatically creates and updates separate instrumental parts.

    Get more expressive playback

    Add more expressive and realistic feel to any individual part in your score and customize your own rhythmic feels for swing with the completely revamped Espressivo feature. With its exquisite interpretation of notation distinctions, you can hear every nuance of your score play back the way you intended it to be heard.

    Compose quickly with an advanced user interface

    We built Sibelius from the ground up for accelerated navigation and performance, so you can create scores more quickly than ever before. A task-based front-end leads you through the entire score creation workflow, and the Timeline window displays the entire structure of even the largest, most complex scores at a glance.

    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.

    Play, perform, and share

    Integrate with Pro Tools

    Integrate Pro Tools into your workflow and take your compositions even further. Using ReWire, included in Sibelius and Pro Tools, you can record instrument parts from Sibelius scores to the DAW for further recording, editing, and mixing. And you can directly send Pro Tools tracks from its Score Editor to Sibelius for further notation refinement.

    Easy collaboration and sharing

    Collaborate more easily with others and distribute your compositions for the world to hear. Share scores through email, upload and publish them as sheet music on ScoreExchange.com, and even share your composition as a video or audio file on YouTube, Facebook, and SoundCloud.

    Compose with every instrument

    Play back and hear every nuance of your composition in stunningly realistic detail with Sibelius Sounds. You get 36 GB of professional content, including a specially recorded symphony orchestra, rock, pop, and jazz instrumentation, world-class licensed sounds, and much more.

    Layout, export, and print

    Create with full desktop publishing tools

    Create beautiful, professional-looking scores using a full set of typography and layout tools. Polish text with tracking, leading, scaling, text frame, and alignment tools. Change fonts and add emphasis using hierarchical styles. Drag and drop graphics in any major format. And export publisher-quality scores as PDFs with just one click.

    Transcribe and scan music

    Transcribe and scan music directly into Sibelius with Neuratron AudioScore Ultimate and PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate. With AudioScore Ultimate, you can input notes into Sibelius by singing or playing an instrument, or importing music from a CD. With PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate, you can scan printed music and send to Sibelius for playback, transposing, and editing. You can even write music on a tablet or laptop and convert your handwriting into professional scores.

    Add notes directly on the score

    With the Annotate feature, you can create reminders for yourself about music changes as you're composing, or communicate edits and feedback to collaborators. 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.
