New Sibelius® 8 Now Available  
The fastest, smartest, easiest way to write music

With the newly released Sibelius® you will have more choice in how to access the software. Sibelius® will enable you to express your creativity in brand new ways with the integrated annotate feature, multi-touch gestures, Surface Pro 3 Pen support and more.

For Existing Sibelius® Customers
There has never been a better time to upgrade to the newest version of Sibelius® regardless of what version of Sibelius® you currently own. Existing Sibelius® owners will be able to upgrade their current version for as little as about 95€ per license, which includes the Avid Upgrade Plan providing all future Sibelius® upgrades and expert help for 12 months.

New features

Get easy access to the world's best-selling music notation tool

In addition to Sibelius® being available to own and upgrade as before, users can now subscribe on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, enabling them to access the latest version of the software affordably at any time and pay only when they need it. And users will have access to all future Sibelius®updates and upgrades as soon as they're available through the included Avid upgrade plan, as well as to expert help.

Write music with a pen on a Surface Pro

Sibelius® has been optimized for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, enabling users to add and edit notes quickly with just a tap of the pen, as well as play music in real time using the tablet's onscreen keyboard and fretboard. Use the Surface Pen's buttons to select, erase and edit the music. Users can even drag the score around and resize objects while inputting notes.

Add notes and comments directly on the score

With the new Annotate feature, users can create reminders for themselves about changes as they're composing, or communicate edits and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. Draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, USB tablet, or Surface Pro 3 Pen. Circle items and write or type comments or instructions to arrangers, players, or students. Because annotations are grouped intelligently and always attached to the bar they're added to, users needn't worry about losing their notes. Plus, annotations can be switched off so they don't appear when printing.

Interact with scores using multi-touch gestures

Whether users are working on a laptop with a trackpad or using a Surface Pro 3, they can quickly zoom in and out of their score by simply using a pinch-zoom gesture, making navigation and editing easier. Users can even set predefined zoom levels to zoom in and out with a quick double-tap.

Get up and running faster than ever

Avid has revamped and simplified the entire Sibelius® activation process so users can quickly start using the software and easily move to a different computer. No longer do users have to use a serial number, System ID, or Activation ID to activate, deactivate, and reactivate Sibelius®whenever they want to switch computers; now they can activate Sibelius® on any computer by simply signing in to the Avid Master Account. Plus, they will get access to support, downloads, and their Avid Marketplace account once they do.

Work quicker and see more detail on Windows

For Windows users, Sibelius® features an updated interface and new support for high-resolution displays, enabling users to see every detail of their score in stunning clarity. Plus, gain faster access to the features needed most with new and improved icons that appear in the ribbon and floating windows.

What's included with Sibelius

Sibelius software license with download access to

Avid upgrade plan (includes all upgrades for 12 months with a perpetual license purchase, renewable annually, or throughout the duration of an active subscription)

Avid Standard Support for Sibelius

Sibelius is available as software download. An internet connection is required for software activation and for downloading the installers. A high-speed Internet connection is highly recommended for downloading Sibelius and the Sibeilus Sounds library.

Network licenses

Sibelius's network licenses operate on a client-server model. The Sibelius program itself is installed on the local hard drive of each of the client workstations, and a separate License Server program is installed on a single designated server or workstation. The License Server program is supplied with your copy of Sibelius and enables the designated number of licensed client copies to run on the network simultaneously. In conjunction with Sibelius's Classroom Control feature, the License Server also lets you send messages to users of the client copies, send and receive Sibelius files between client machines, and close copies down from the server machine.

License Server requirements

Sibelius requires a network using the TCP/IP and UDP protocols. (Your network may use other protocols in addition to TCP/IP and UDP, but TCP/IP and UDP must be present in order for the License Server to communicate fully with the client copies.)

The Sibelius License Server and the License Server Control Panel will run on Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2, Mac OS X 10.9 and later. It will also run on a virtual server running VMWare using a qualified Windows operating system, as listed above.
