The task-based interface allows you to create scores with confidence. It gives you the ability to build up your compositions with support for up to 16 instrument parts. You can enter notes from the on-screen editor, keyboard, MIDI keyboard or computer keyboard. Sibelius automatically orientates your notation and the layout for added convenience.
The intuitive interface allows you to create and build up complex compositions. You can do everything from add chord symbols and guitar chord annotations. You can even add lyrics, titles and graphics around your score for further customisation.
The Magnetic Layout provides an innovative way to map and notate your compositions. It ensures that everything occupies the right amount of space, kind of like quantizing musical notes. You can even use and edit your scores via Avid Scorch – the IOS applications that transforms your iPad into an interactive score library.
Sometimes as musicians we can hit a writer’s block that can stop us from getting inspired and creating. One of the most unique features of Sibelius is the Score Starter. This creative hub allows features 40 genre-specific score templates to get you started. The Ideas Hub also provides you with an extensive library of over 300 ideas to kick-start your creative flow.
Not only is Sibelius perfect for composing scores, it also provides you with a 10GB sound library for playing back compositions. The library features a wide range of premium-grade sounds spanning from traditional pianos to saxophones and more. The cutting-edge Espressivo feature provides a more natural feel to your sound. You can also utilise VST and AU virtual instruments and effects to achieve the sound you desire.
Drawing inspiration from other artists has resulted in countless classic musical pieces. With Sibelius | Cloud Sharing, you can share your compositions with other artists and also view and play their music. This also allows you to collaborate with other composers. It provides a number of file types which can be shared and view by other artists such as MIDI or PDF files.
