The new Sibelius 8.2 music notation software from Avid offers composers significant engraving and workflow enhancements to effortlessly create accurate, easy-to-read scores. Dana Ruzicka, VP and Chief Product Officer at Avid said that the update introduces some great notation improvements, including several enhancements requested by customers since the 8.1 release. “And thanks to the analytics and error reporting we introduced in 8.1, Sibelius is now more stable than ever,” he added.

With the new updates to Sibelius 8.2, music composers can now re-spell notes in parts, making it possible to have the same pitched note to have a different accidental in a part versus the score. It is also feasible for time signature changes to now appear after the barline, but before repeat barlines. Additionally, notes and rests can now be moved horizontally in the score, with new keyboard shortcuts that simplify the process, eliminating time spent cutting and pasting music around staves.

high quality music scores quickly and easily

In addition, Avid has added two new Sibelius bundles, offering composers even greater value by adding powerful capabilities to their notation workflows at a reduced price. The Sibelius + PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate Bundle enables music content creators to scan sheet music into Sibelius and handwrite music and notes using a pen and tablet. The Sibelius + AudioScore Ultimate Bundle also allows them to turn recorded audio or live mic performances into transcribed music notation.
