AVID SIBELIUS Ultimate 1-Year SUBSCRIPTION
SIBELIUS ULTIMATE ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION WITH UPGRADE + SUPPORT PLAN
WHAT DOES SIBELIUS SUBSCRIPTION MEAN?
You don`t buy a full version, you rent a Sibelius License for 1 year. After this you need to buy a new license to continue working with Sibelius Ultimate, which means that you do not own the software.
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'll be able to 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. Or get started with Sibelius. 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, or in the classroom.
COMPOSE, ARRANGE, AND ENGRAVE WITHOUT LIMITS
Sibelius | Ultimate (formerly Sibelius—learn more) offers an advanced toolset, enabling you to work with an unlimited number of instrument parts and tailor every facet of your score to your needs. Create sophisticated sheet music with an expanded set of notation tools and symbols, customizable notes and instruments, and film scoring workflows. And speed through score refinement with advanced layout, editing, and publishing tools.
WRITE MUSIC QUICKLY AND EASILY
With a complete upgrade of its underlying infrastructure, Sibelius | Ultimate offers powerful multi-edit capabilities and a task-based interface that leads you through the entire score creation process. Enter notes from the onscreen notation, keyboard, or fretboard windows, or from your MIDI keyboard. Add notational elements, dynamics, custom symbols, and text. And easily navigate large, complex scores using the timeline.
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.
GET UNMATCHED PRO TOOLS INTEGRATION
Take your compositions even further when you integrate Pro Tools into your workflow. Using ReWire (included), you can easily record instrument parts from your Sibelius | Ultimate scores to Pro Tools and other DAWs for further recording, editing, and mixing. And you can directly send Pro Tools tracks from its Score Editor to Sibelius | Ultimate for further notation refinement.
Got a little melody line, chord progression, or lyric you want to file away quickly? No need to drop everything you’re doing. The Ideas Hub enables you to capture and tag those inspired snippets of music and ideas quickly for later use or reuse. If you’re having writer’s block, Sibelius | Ultimate also comes with over 2,000 ideas in its library to help get you inspired and rev up your creative flow.
POLISH YOUR SCORE TO PERFECTION
With a full suite of desktop publishing tools and score Inspector, you can control and finesse every score element with ease. Fine-tune lyrics, dynamics, and other text with tracking, leading, scaling, and alignment tools. Use hierarchical styles to change fonts and add emphasis. Add graphics using drag-and-drop. Even create your own house styles and manuscript papers to give your scores a unique look and feel.
GET UPDATES AND HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT
Sibelius | Ultimate is available through an annual subscription, or you can purchase a perpetual license and own the software outright. Both include access to all new Sibelius releases and Standard support throughout your active subscription or renewable 1-Year Software Updates + Support Plan (included with perpetual license purchases).
TEACH MUSIC COMPOSITION
Sibelius | Ultimate is ideal for teaching music notation, composition, and theory to students of all ages.
