What's new in Sibelius

Create custom staff sizes in your score—just added

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 color 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, but Sibelius will also automatically generate ID3 tags from your Score Info dialog.

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 playback just the way you expect them to. And, by default, time signature changes now appear after the barline but before repeating barlines.

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, but it also 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 All-Access with Sibelius
With the latest version of Sibelius, creating beautiful, accurate, easy-to-read scores is more effortless than ever. Whether you choose to own, upgrade, or subscribe to Sibelius, your purchase comes with an All Access plan, giving you access to all future releases and expert help for the duration of your plan or subscription. Write at the speed of your creativity with the tools used most in live performance, music publishing, and film composition.

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 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 playback 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, and even share your composition as a video or audio file on YouTube, Facebook, and SoundCloud.

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

Need more comprehensive features? Get (or upgrade to) the Sibelius + Ultimate Bundle, which features PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate and AudioScore Ultimate.

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.

Enhance online score purchasing
