Upgrade and Support Plan for customers who own any Sibelius Academic Version - Download

Click here to go to the Sibelius website stating the below information - I'm an existing Sibelius user (version 7.5 or earlier); what happens to my software now? Do I have to upgrade to this new licensing model?

You can choose to get the new Sibelius Upgrade, that comes bundled with a 1-year Upgrade and support plan, which gives you access to technical support and free upgrades to Sibelius. (Support plans may be renewed annually for $89.) Or, you can choose to not upgrade and remain at your current level of software. If you do not get the Upgrade/Support plan, you can continue to run your current version of software indefinitely. However, you won't have access to the latest updates/upgrades.

*The introductory upgrade price of $89 will end June 30, 2016. After that, the cost to upgrade from Sibelius 1-7.5 to Sibelius 8 will be $299.
(For customers in education, tiered pricing has been removed altogether so that you can upgrade for $89 at any time in the future. For schools with multi-seat licenses, the price to upgrade and renew is $29 per seat. To qualify for this discount, you must provide proof of eligibility.)

With Avid Sibelius 8, you'll deliver better scores, faster than ever.

Score on your Surface Pro

Avid has optimized Sibelius 8 for use with Microsoft'a Surface Pro 3 tablet, letting you quickly add and edit notes with just a tap of the pen, as well as play music in real time using your tablet's onscreen keyboard and fretboard. You can use the Surface Pro Pen's buttons to select, erase, and edit your music, and you can even drag the score around while you're inputting notes.

Many ways to create and share your music

Avid Sibelius 8 lets you play back your scores with impressive realism, with immediate access to an extensive instrumental library filled with a broad variety of pro-quality instruments. You can sync Sibelius to Pro Tools and other DAWs via ReWire, or collaborate through MusicXML. Share your music as a score, audio file, or video through email, ScoreExchange, YouTube, Facebook, SoundCloud, and more - or export it to Avid Scorch, which lets musicians perform your compositions on an iPad.

Full palette of desktop publishing tools

Creating gorgeous professional scores is easy with Avid Sibelius 8's full palette of desktop publishing tools. Perfect your text with tracking, leading, and other industry-standard typography tools. Drag-and-drop graphics. With a single click, easily export publisher-quality scores in PDF format.

Transcribe and scan into Sibelius

Avid Sibelius 8 includes Neuratron AudioScore Lite and PhotoScore Lite, which let you transcribe and scan music into Sibelius. Using AudioScore Lite, you can sing or play an instrument to input notes into Sibelius, or import music from a CD. And you can scan printed music with PhotoScore Lite and send it to Sibelius for playback, transposition, and editing. PhotoScore even comes with NotateMe for real-time conversion of your handwriting into notation.

Get up and running faster than ever

We've revamped and simplified the entire Sibelius activation process so you can quickly start using the software and easily move to a different computer. No longer do you have to use a serial number, System ID, or Activation ID to activate, deactivate, and reactivate Sibelius whenever you want to switch computers; now you can activate Sibelius on any computer by simply signing in to your Avid Master Account.

Work faster and see more detailed beauty on Windows

For Windows users, Sibelius features an updated interface and new support for high-resolution displays, enabling you to see every detail of your score in stunning clarity.
