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. Plus, gain faster access to the features you need most with new and improved icons that appear in the ribbon and floating windows.

Includes Photoscore Ultimate 8

Scan music for transpositions, arrangements, and editions. PhotoScore Ultimate is the full-featured version of the PhotoScore Lite scanning software for Sibelius. This powerful software can also scan music into other MIDI software, such as sequencers. You can even use it on its own to scan in, play back, transpose, and print scores, and even save audio files. PhotoScore Ultimate reads printed and handwritten music or PDFs in seconds-not just the notes, but also printed slurs, dynamics, lyrics, guitar tab, chord diagrams, and more. You can then edit or transpose the music, play it back, extract the parts, and print-just as if you'd input it yourself.

Includes Audioscore Ultimate 8

AudioScore Ultimate is the full-featured version of the AudioScore Lite audio transcription software included with Sibelius. With AudioScore Ultimate 7, you can open a CD track or MP3 file and transcribe it to a score. The software employs the most intelligent technology available today to convert up to 16 instruments or notes at a time into multiple staves, with up to four voices per staff. After transcribing your music, you can send it directly to Sibelius or save it as a MusicXML, NIFF, or MIDI file for use in most other music programs. You can also print a professional-quality score directly from AudioScore.
