What’s new in Sibelius 2020

Auto-Optimize staff spacing - Sibelius will automatically optimize the space between the staves in your score to fit the music you’re writing.
New Dashed and Dotted and Tie-into Ties - Improvements to ties with three new styles of ties: Dashed, Dotted and Tie-into.
  • Dashed and Dotted - Commonly used in choral work to indicate a difference in verses within a repeated structure, or to suggest an editorial tie.
  • Tie-into - Useful across a repeat structure where the last note before 1st-time repeat is also tied into the first beat of the 2nd repeat.
House Styles and Manuscript Papers - Brand new House Styles in Sibelius to give your scores an elegant, contemporary or casual handwritten appearance.
Accessibility – significant improvements, that not only provide more rich feedback from the score and Sibelius’s UI, but also controls for choosing the verbosity of what’s sent to the screen reader.
Large film score time signatures - A new style of Time Signature, which is common in film and TV scores.

Sibelius is the world’s best-selling music notation software, offering sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools that are proven and trusted by composers, arrangers, publishers, educators, and students alike. And with the new Sibelius, you can access the software in more affordable ways than ever. Compose with a low-cost subscription. Own the software outright. Manage multiple copies with Sibelius network licensing. The choice is yours. And with the integrated Annotate feature, multi-touch gestures, Surface Pro 3 pen support, and more, Sibelius enables you to express your creativity in brand new ways, whether composing for a live performance, movie, television, media entertainment.

Write music quickly and easily

Sibelius features an intuitive task-based interface that leads you through the entire score creation process, so you can jump right in and start composing music immediately. Enter notes from the onscreen notation, keyboard, or fretboard windows, or from your MIDI or computer keyboard. Sibelius takes care of all note layout, orientation, and rest details for you.

Build up your composition

With support for up to 16 instrument parts (staves), you can create rich, multilayered compositions. But it’s not just about notes. Add chord symbols and guitar chord diagrams by simply playing a chord on a MIDI device or typing suffix elements. Turn guitar tab into notation and back again. And easily add lyrics, titles, text, and graphics to round out your score.

Create beautiful scores fast

Spend more time writing music instead of fixing it. As you write, Magnetic Layout automatically gives everything just the right amount of space and avoids collisions to produce beautiful results, cutting writing time in half. And Dynamic Parts can automatically create and update separate instrumental parts whenever you change your score.

Turn music into scores

Sibelius comes with two companion applications that enable you to turn recorded, performed, printed, and handwritten music into notation. With AudioScore Lite, you can input notes by singing or playing a monophonic instrument through a microphone. With PhotoScore & NotateMe Lite, you can turn printed, PDF, and JPEG sheet music into editable scores—and even handwrite music.

Hear your music in stunning detail

With the included 10 GB sound library of high-quality sampled instruments, you can play back compositions to hear how it would sound with full instrumentation. The Espressivo feature adds a more humanistic feel, so your score sounds the way you intended it to be heard. You can also use VST and AU virtual instruments and effects.

With Avid Scorch on your iPad, you can view scores and adapt them to your instrument by transposing the music, changing instruments, or even converting to and from guitar tab.

Get updates and help when you need it

Sibelius is available through a low-cost monthly or annual subscription, or you can purchase a perpetual license and own the software outright.
