Sibelius 7.5.1 Build 209

Comprehensive program for writing, playing, printing and publishing music notations, with impressive import and export capabilities and many customizable features
Sibelius is a software application designed for creating, manipulating and sharing music notations. It is mainly developed for composers, arrangers and publishers.

Sufficient documentation and straightforward interface

When you first initiate the program, you can watch a few videos to get familiarized with the Sibelius platform (whether you have used a similar software before or not), view tutorials and some reference guides.

The GUI is very attractive and quite well-organized, as it encompasses a tabbed ribbon, quick access toolbar and a pane in which to preview music scores. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can learn how to handle it, without facing many difficulties.

Creating or importing a new score

When you create a new score, you can either choose from a blank, bass staff or treble staff, or from several categories - bands, chamber groups, choral and song, hand bells, jazz, Latino, marching band and percussion, orchestral, Orff instruments, rock and pop, or solo instruments.

Optionally, you can import a MIDI file created in another music application or downloaded off the web, or a MusicXML file.

Use the built-in sound library and customize notes

In the ribbon you can choose note input (triplets, respell), notations (clef, key signature), text (lyrics, chord symbol), play (live tempo, live playback), layout (magnetic layout, freeze positions), appearance (reset note spacing, beam groups), parts or view.

In addition to that, Sibelius offers a professional sound library (includes over 38GB of professional content), optimization for single monitor use (especially useful when you have a laptop), advanced text and typography options, as well as the possibility of importing and exporting graphics from all major formats.

Evaluation and conclusion

This utility is highly demanding when it comes to CPU and memory, yet this is quite a normal thing when considering the complexity of the app. The response time is quite good, and the interface is professional and intuitive.

Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say Sibelius is a well-rounded program designed for professionals in the music-creating industry.
