Sibelius First 7



SibeliusSibelius
The complete software for writing, playing, printing and publishing music notation

The latest generation of the worlds best-selling music notation software, Sibelius® 7 is sophisticated enough to meet the demands of top composers, arrangers, and publishers, yet simple enough for beginners and students.
Work quickly with the brand-new, task-oriented user interface. Experience your scores in stunning clarity with the exclusive, professional-quality sound library. Collaborate more easily thanks to full MusicXML interchange support and other sharing options. And view beautiful, print-quality scores with advanced typography and graphics support.
Designed by musicians for musicians, Sibelius is the fastest, smartest, easiest way to write music. You can even take your scores on the go with the Avid Scorch® app for iPad.

Task-oriented user interface

The brand-new Sibelius user interface provides task-focused tabs that lead you through the process of creating a score from start to finish. Every feature has both an icon and a text description—which you can access via a button or a keyboard shortcut—with full contextual help available when you need it.

Professional sound library—only in Sibelius

You finesse every detail of your score—you want to hear every nuance during playback. Sibelius includes more than 38 GB of professional content, including a specially recorded symphony orchestra, rock and pop instruments, and much more. This exclusive sound library is only available in Sibelius.

Native 64-bit support—only in Sibelius

Today’s 64-bit capable hardware and operating systems provide big speed and memory advantages. Sibelius is the world’s first 64-bit notation software, enabling you to unlock the full power of your 64-bit system—and work more quickly, with more virtual instruments and effects, than ever before.

Optimized for single monitor use—only in Sibelius

We understand that many of our customers favor laptops or other single-display systems. That’s why we designed the Sibelius interface to allow you to focus on the music at all times—and easily hide information that you only need to see occasionally

Switch to Sibelius from Finale

There’s never been a better time to switch from Finale® to Sibelius. Sibelius now features a step-time note input method that is very similar to Finale software’s Speedy Entry method—right down to using many of the same keystrokes. So if you know how to input notes in Finale, you know Sibelius too. And because today’s workflows include a wide variety of software applications, Sibelius now includes full MusicXML export capability, so you can exchange files with hundreds of other applications, including Finale.

Creating music in Sibelius

Start writing music quickly and easily

Starting off

Start a score from scratch – specify instruments, page size, title, tempo etc. with a few clicks. Your score is set up instantly, all of the instruments with the correct names, clefs, transpositions and layout.
Then you can input notes in four easy ways:

MIDI input

Flexi-time™ is Sibelius’s unique system for notating music as you play it on a MIDI keyboard in real time. There’s no need to tap a pedal or play mechanically – just play naturally with both hands, and Sibelius will actually follow you as you speed up or slow down.
You can even listen to the music you’ve already written as you play in more music on top.

You can even listen to the music you’ve already written as you play in more music on top.

It takes just seconds to set up your score, ready for inputting notes.

Step-time lets you play pitches from your MIDI keyboard with one hand, and choose rhythms and articulations with the other from the keypad (see picture).

To input without a MIDI keyboard, pick note-values and accidentals from the keypad with the mouse, and click to place them in the score. For extra speed, use the computer keyboard instead – specify pitch using the letters A to G, and rhythms from the keypad using the numeric keys (see left). There are many other useful keyboard shortcuts for power users.Mouse & keystrokes

To input without a MIDI keyboard, pick note-values and accidentals from the keypad with the mouse, and click to place them in the score. For extra speed, use the computer keyboard instead – specify pitch using the letters A to G, and rhythms from the keypad using the numeric keys (see left). There are many other useful keyboard shortcuts for "power users."

You can get other markings such as clefs, slurs and time signatures from menus; Sibelius even positions them in the right place for you.

Keypad
Choose notes, articulations etc. with the mouse or corresponding numeric key. There are five different sets of symbols to choose from.

Scanning

Sibelius includes PhotoScore™ Lite – the state-of-the-art program for scanning printed music. It takes just seconds to read a page, and you can then edit or transpose the music in Sibelius, play it back, extract parts and print – just as if you’d input it yourself. It will also read music in PDF files.

The advanced version PhotoScore Ultimate (which you can buy with Sibelius) has many extra features, such as reading handwritten music, slurs, articulations, hairpins and text.

File conversion

Sibelius seamlessly opens Finale™, MusicXML, MIDI, SCORE™, Allegro™ and PrintMusic 1.0 ™ files in seconds – the ideal way to transfer your existing music to Sibelius.

Composing and arranging in Sibelius

You just think of the notes – Sibelius does the rest

Sketch & refine

Sibelius lets you change music whenever you like. Sketch a solo flute piece, then add a whole orchestra to create a concerto. Write in sounding pitch, then make a transposing score with one click. Add extra bars at the start of a score, and Sibelius instantly reformats every page – far more flexible than pen and paper.

If you completely change your mind, Sibelius lets you undo up to 20,000 operations, and keeps backups of 40 previous versions of your music.

Text & lyrics

Sibelius puts different types of text, such as dynamics, titles and lyrics, in the appropriate font, size and position. You can edit these text styles to change text consistently throughout the score.
To input lyrics, just type – Sibelius positions the words under the notes, puts in hyphens and lyric lines, and allows extra room for long syllables. You can also copy lyrics from a word processor.
To save typing all the lyrics into a score, you can now add them automatically from a text file - Sibelius even splits them into syllables for you. Or if you type the lyrics in yourself, Sibelius will check that you’ve split syllables in all the right places.

Arrange

Arrange is a unique feature to help with arranging and orchestration. It’s ideal for students learning instrumental writing, and saves hours of time for experienced professionals.

Just select some music, and specify how you want it to be arranged or orchestrated – Sibelius does the rest in an instant, using appropriate instruments, doublings, etc. It handles anything from keyboard reductions and ‘exploding’ chords onto separate staves, to sophisticated arrangement and orchestration styles, such as:

  • Band, using high brass and pitched percussion
  • Choir, tenor doubling soprano down an octave
  • Jazz, in the style of famous band leaders including Sammy Nestico, Billy Strayhorn and Thad Jones
  • Impressionist orchestration with harp and strings.

Over 150 of these styles are provided, and you can even create your own.

Focus on staves

Sibelius makes it easy to write large scores, by allowing you to view just the staves you're working on.

Copying & transposing

Copying music is far faster than re-writing it, so Sibelius copies anything with one click of the mouse – especially useful for doubled instruments and repeating figures. You can make multiple copies at once, e.g. to put the same dynamics onto every instrument.

Sibelius transposes music instantly into any key, and handles everything about transposing instruments for you. Write music in sounding or written pitch, and switch between the two whenever you like.

Music Fonts

Reprise fontReprise™: Reprise is the latest in Sibelius’s growing range of elegant fonts. In fact, Reprise is a whole family of 9 fonts that produce an astonishingly realistic simulation of handcopying. Its music symbols are drawn with a fixed-width nib (rather than the italic nib used in Inkpen2), and additionally it includes two rubber-stamp fonts for titles and other large text. Special characters and plug-ins are included for adding hand-drawn lines and boxes to text and rehearsal marks, and house styles for incorporating Reprise into scores. Overall Reprise is a beautiful reproduction of traditional hand-copying, in a style particularly suitable for jazz, lead sheets, big band, and show music.

Note Names font - The new Opus Note Names font lets you write the names of notes inside the notehead!Opus Note Names: The new Opus Note Names font lets you write the names of notes inside the notehead – ideal if you’re writing music for students who are just taking up an instrument, particularly those learning piano.

Chord symbols: There are two new fonts for chord symbols – Opus Chords Sans and Opus Chords Sans Condensed – with regular and narrow sans serif characters, similar to Arial / Helvetica. Plus various extra characters can now be included in chord symbols.

AvantGarde - Sibelius 6 now includes over 200 extra music symbols for early and contemporary music, such as prolations, Bach ornaments and clusters. Functional analysis: Musicologists and students can now write functional analysis in Sibelius 5, thanks to the new Opus Function Symbols font and text style.

Fits lyrics to music

To save typing all the lyrics into a score, you can now add them automatically from a text file – Sibelius 5 even splits them into syllables for you. Or if you type the lyrics in yourself, Sibelius will check that you’ve split syllables in all the right places.

Plug-ins

You can now undo plug-ins, so you needn’t be afraid of trying them out!

What’s more, the ManuScript language used to write plug-ins now supports tuplets, object deletion, notehead types, bar number changes, cue-sized objects, blank pages, time positions, score duration, and lyric syllabification. This makes current and future plug-ins far more powerful. With a total of over 100 plug-ins, the latest ones in Sibelius 5 include:

Tuplets plug-in - Split, join and modify tuplets, e.g. turn two triplets into a sextuplet, or a sextuplet into a quintuplet. Many other plug-ins now work with tuplets, too.Tuplets: Split, join and modify tuplets, e.g. turn two triplets into a sextuplet, or a sextuplet into a quintuplet.

Stunning new built-in sounds - Sibelius Sounds Essentials

Sibelius Sounds Essentials  - Sibelius 6 comes with Sibelius Sounds Essentials as standard

150+ high-quality built-in sounds

Sibelius 5 comes with Sibelius Sounds Essentials as standard – a collection of over 150 pitched and hundreds of percussion sounds, covering a wide range of orchestral, rock & pop, jazz and marching band instruments, plus the full General MIDI set. We’ve selected the sounds from top-name libraries such as Garritan Personal Orchestra, SONiVOX, Garritan Jazz & Big Band, Garritan Concert & Marching Band, M-Audio Session, and Tapspace Virtual Drumline – everything you need to start producing high-quality playback, audio files and CDs.

Sibelius Sounds Essentials plays back using Kontakt Player 2, the very latest version with much improved performance. It can play any number of sounds simultaneously (limited only by your computer), loads them almost instantly, and has extra built-in effects. Any other Sibelius Sounds you have (e.g. Kontakt Gold, GPO Sibelius Edition) will work better than ever, too.

Enhanced realism

You can now specify exactly how articulations, lines, tremolos and symbols play back – for example, to change the length and loudness of accents and staccatos, the speed of tremolos, or how fast chords with wiggly arpeggio lines are spread. Hairpins automatically read dynamics to work out how loud or soft they should end up, and sustained notes get continuously louder or softer along the hairpin.

Always chooses the best sounds

Our revolutionary new way of categorising sounds, called SoundWorld™, ensures that Sibelius always chooses the most suitable sound available on any device – with no need to reset them if you switch equipment. And if you want to tell Sibelius which device you prefer for particular sounds, e.g. GPO for strings

VST & Audio Units

Audio Units & VST - VST (on Windows and Mac) and Audio Units (on Mac only) are state-of-the-art standards for high-quality instrumental sounds VST (on Windows and Mac) and Audio Units (on Mac only) are state-of-the-art standards for high-quality instrumental sounds. A huge variety of VST and Audio Unit instruments are available from numerous manufacturers – and now Sibelius 5 can play back using any of them!

Espressivo™ & Rubato™

Espressivo and Rubato are unique features which add elegant expression as Sibelius plays. Espressivo makes subtle adjustments to the dynamics to produce musical phrasing, and Rubato varies the tempo, just like a human performer.

Rhythmic feel™, SoundStage™ & reverb

Sibelius lets you choose from numerous "rhythmic feel" styles which make subtle enhancements to the rhythm – anything from jazz swing to Viennese waltz!

When playing back scores for ensembles such as orchestra or band, Sibelius’s unique SoundStage feature positions the sounds correctly in 3-D space, as if the instruments were on a concert stage. You can also choose the reverb characteristics of different natural acoustics.

Because Sibelius has such sophisticated playback features, you can use it for far more than just listening to music. Sibelius makes it easy to check the notes you’ve written, accompanies while you practice, and helps you make rehearsal tapes and CD recordings of your music.

Repeats

Sibelius supports every kind of repeat you can imagine - not just D.S., D.C., Coda, Segno and Fine, but complex repeat structures with up to 8 repetitions. You can even make Sibelius jump between arbitrary points in the score during playback, e.g. to skip guitar fill boxes or simulate aleatory performances.

You can make individual notes, dynamics etc. apply only to certain verses or repeats, so you could have the brass play only the second time round, or make verse 3 p and verse 4 f.

Never lose another idea

Ideas are precious. That’s why Sibelius 5 gives you the Ideas Hub - the easy way to capture, tag, find and bring together your musical ideas. With Ideas Hub, you’ll never let another flash of inspiration slip by again.

As well as your own ideas, Ideas Hub comes preloaded with over 2000 ready-made ideas. They cover all styles of music and help provide useful inspiration for your compositions.

Ideas Hub is a unique new feature that lets you capture, use and re-use snippets of music. As well as using your own ideas, over 2000 ready-made ones are included – ideal for teaching.

Never lose another idea

When writing music you often come up with a bit of melody, rhythm, accompaniment or chord progression with some potential. Now, instead of wondering what to do with it, just tap a key to store it in the ideas Hub. Then you can re-use these ideas later in any score, just like pasting from the clipboard; Sibelius even transposes ideas into the right key and range.

Ideas keywords - An idea can be a passage of music of any length, any kind and for any number of instruments.Tag, organize and search

An idea can be a passage of music of any length, any kind and for any number of instruments. Once you’ve captured an idea you can edit it, tag it with your own keywords (e.g. canon, lyrical, riff) to help find it later, or even colour-code it. The Ideas window lets you browse and search through all the available ideas by keyword tags, instrument, time signature, key and so on, and even play them back. Plus, you can export them later to share your ideas with other people.

Ideas genres - Over 2000 ready-made ideas are included for students to use, in a huge range of styles from classical, jazz and band to world music, rock and hip-hop...Ready-made ideas for students

Over 2000 ready-made ideas are included for students to use, in a huge range of styles from classical, jazz and band to world music, rock and hip-hop. By using these ideas in their music, students of all abilities can discover how melodies, harmonies and rhythms can be put together to create differing textures and musical structures.

They could start with just one or two ideas for inspiration, or alternatively use ideas as building blocks to create a complete piece. You can keep track of what they’ve done, because Sibelius marks where ideas are used in the score.

If you prefer, you can switch off all of the ready-made ideas, or just give students a few specific ones, for more focused exercises.
 

Dynamic Parts™ in Sibelius

Parts in other programs

In other programs, to get instrumental parts you have to ‘extract' them from the full score. You then have to spend time checking them and cleaning them up. And if you make revisions to the score later - which almost always happens in practice - you either have to spend ages making the same revisions in the parts yourself, or extract them all over again.
Not so in Sibelius.

Dynamic Parts

Sibelius has a unique feature called Dynamic Parts. You don't have to extract them – in fact, you don't have to do anything to get parts! As soon as you start a new score, all the parts are already there – and you can look at any of them from a list on the toolbar.

Sibelius has a unique feature called Dynamic Parts. As soon as you start a new score, all the parts are already there – and you can look at any of them from a list on the toolbar.

Editing the full score (left) automatically changes the part (right)

As you add music to the full score, it appears in the relevant parts too. In fact, whatever you do to the score, Sibelius instantly updates the parts. Or you can even write music in the parts, and the score will change to match! But you can also change things in parts without affecting the score if you like, such as adding cues.

The parts are transposed if necessary, have bar rests grouped into ‘multirests', and include all the relevant markings such as time signature and tempo changes. So you don't have to think about anything.

Create cues instantly

Creating cues in parts is now the work of a moment. Simply copy the music you want to appear in the cue, and choose Paste As Cue. Sibelius 5 does the rest for you – it makes the cue small, puts it in a suitable voice, transposes it or changes clef as necessary, deletes dynamics and articulations (optional), adds a text label, hides the cue in the score, and stops it playing back. You can even add a cue to multiple instruments at once.

What’s more, there are two new plug-ins to make cueing even easier. Suggest Cue Locations suggests suitable points for cues in your score, based on either the number of bars rest or the duration of a rest in a part, while Check Cues verifies that cues you’ve previously added are still correct, in case you’ve changed the music.

Paste as Cue - Paste As Cue makes creating cues the work of a moment – Sibelius automatically makes the music small and stops it playing back.

Paste As Cue makes creating cues the work of a moment – Sibelius automatically makes the music small and stops it playing back.

Customize cue appearance

Sibelius 5 does the work of creating cues for you, but you still have complete control over how they appear. You can choose whether you want articulations and dynamics to be included, and whether you want the cue to have new clefs and octave lines or be transposed to an appropriate pitch for the destination instrument.

Easy instrument changes

Scores often have two or more instruments played by the same person, such as percussion, or clarinet doubling saxophone. Or sometimes you need to rewrite a whole part for a different instrument. Now Sibelius will do this automatically for you: simply put an instrument change anywhere in the music, and Sibelius 5 will change the instrument from that point onwards – altering its name, clef, sound, even the transposition and staff type if necessary.

Plus, if you write for unusual instruments you can now design your own, choosing the name, clef, range, sound, etc. you want. From glockenrimba to trumpet in F#, your imagination is the only limit!

Complete layout control

Sibelius 5 also offers users complete and easy layout control, covering bar and page numbering, blank pages, sheet music margins and more – making it easier than ever to produce beautiful scores.

Insert blank pages

You can now insert blank pages anywhere with a couple of clicks, then add text, graphics, etc. to produce title pages and performance instructions. They even work in parts too – in fact, you can make any blank page or title page appear in the score, the parts, or both.

Different margins for different pages

Scores no longer need to use the same margins throughout – you can set different margins on different pages, e.g. to allow room for titles and copyright lines. Plus you can now easily alter margins in parts.

House Styles

When importing a house style, or copying between scores, Sibelius 5 only adds extra text styles, line types, notehead types, symbols and so on where necessary, and won’t overwrite existing ones if they differ. You can now also move individual text styles and other object types between scores.

Flexible numbering

Bar numbers, page numbers and rehearsal marks now support special numbering formats used in some types of score.

Bar numbers: You can set any passage of music (such as introductions and inserted sections) to use special bar number formats, e.g. 1a, 1b, 1c… or a, b, c… in capitals or small letters. Or use your own prefix/suffix, such as 1 new, 2 new…, alt 1, alt 2… You can also number bars in any frequency you like, such as every 8 bars instead of 10.

Bar numbers - Bar numbering can now take account of repeats in various formats. Automatic bar numbers can be selected, moved, hidden and filtered just like anything else. And to make it all easier, the main bar number options are now all in a single dialog.

Bar numbering can now take account of repeats in various formats. Automatic bar numbers can be selected, moved, hidden and filtered just like anything else. And to make it all easier, the main bar number options are now all in a single dialog.

Page numbers: Sibelius 5 lets you re-number, change the format of, or hide page numbers anywhere in a score. For example, you could number the introductory pages of your score i, ii, iii… or a, b, c…, with the music pages numbered 1, 2, 3...

Rehearsal marks: Add automatic prefixes/suffixes to rehearsal marks, e.g. 1A, 2A, 3A… And where rehearsal marks coincide with bar numbers, you can hide the bar numbers automatically to avoid collisions.

Auto Layout™

Sibelius also takes care of the layout of parts for you. It puts page turns at convenient places, and positions rehearsal marks, new sections, key changes etc.Sibelius also takes care of the layout of parts for you. It puts page turns at convenient places, and positions rehearsal marks, new sections, key changes etc. at the start of systems, to make them easier for players to locate. In fact, you'll hardly need to adjust parts at all – just a quick look through and then print.

You can print a complete set of parts with one click of the mouse, and even specify how many copies you want for each instrument.

Overall, Dynamic Parts will save you many hours of work on every score – all the time spent writing out or extracting parts is now a thing of the past.

Video in Sibelius

Sibelius is already used for many films and TV shows – from Shrek 2 to The Simpsons. And you can use it yourself to write music to video. This is ideal for everything from student multimedia projects to professional scoring. No other notation program can do this.

Composing to video


As usual, it's very easy to do. You can simply add any video file to a score; Sibelius displays the video in a window, and plays it back in sync with the music. In fact, the video and score are always kept in sync, whether you're writing music, playing back, fast-forwarding or rewinding.
You can play the video at different sizes or even full screen to watch the finished result; and Sibelius's audio export feature makes it easy for you to add your finished music to the video soundtrack.
But that's not all. You can add ‘hit points’ in the score to mark important visual events; these make it easy to write music to fit the action. Hit points automatically move when you alter metronome marks, so you can tweak the tempo to make a hit point fall exactly on a beat.

Example videos - To get you started, Sibelius 5 comes with a variety of short videos to compose to – ranging from Shackleton's legendary Antarctic expedition to Chalie Chaplin.Videos included!

And you can get more for free from SibeliusEducation.com. The Internet also has thousands of adverts and trailers to download, which are ideal for students to write for.

Timecode & score duration

Sibelius calculates the time position (timecode) of every bar and the total duration of the score to high precision – useful for film/TV scoring, or for any work which requires timings.
Timecode is written above barlines and shown as a digital clock during playback, taking into account tempo marks, irregular bars and rits/accels. Display formats include seconds, centiseconds and various frame rates.

(This feature does not display or sync to incoming SMPTE or MTC.)


Publish, or sell, your music online

As well as printed music, Sibelius publishes beautifully online, too. You can create web versions of scores which can be viewed by anyone using the free Scorch web browser plug-in.
