express yourself

compose arrange 

from concert halls to scoring stages, more composers, arrangers, copyists, and engravers use sibelius than any other tool. it’s the fastest, smartest way to write music.

express your music as notation

sibelius helps drive the composing process while ensuring your score is accurate, legible, and beautiful. from the intuitive task-oriented interface and professional sound library, to the timesaving magnetic layout, sibelius helps you bring your musical vision to life.

write parts with ease

enter notes quickly using the onscreen notation, keyboard, and fretboard windows. or, use your midi keyboard and sibelius music writing software will capture the nuances of your performance and intelligently lay out the notes. magnetic layout automatically adjusts and spaces out your notation as you write, avoiding collisions to produce a beautiful score with minimal effort. 

spark ideas with loop playback

with loop playback, you can select any part of your score to loop repeatedly, enabling you to improvise and experiment as you play along. you can even slow down the tempo for easier rehearsal and practice.

hear your music in stunning detail

with a high-quality 32 gb sample library filled with a wide variety of musical instrumentation, you can hear what your compositions will sound like when performed. the espressivo advanced notation interpretation even lets you adjust rhythm and swing to create a more humanistic feel.

transform music into perfect scores

quickly adapt your music and arrangement for any ensemble and performance with a full suite of powerful orchestration tools. from intelligent midi import workflows, to the ability to refine every instrument, sibelius enables you to create arrangements intuitively whether you’re working with a solo piano or a full orchestra.

import midi intelligentlynew!

with intelligent midi import, you can transform midi compositions from pro tools and other daws into fully orchestrated scores with just a click. import midi into a sibelius score or template, and all proper notation, instrumentation, techniques, and articulations are automatically assigned, preserving the composer’s intent and saving hours—or even days—of clean-up time.

create and arrange parts fast

the arrange feature makes it easy to orchestrate additional instrument parts from existing ones. simply select an orchestration style and sibelius automatically creates new parts based on your source parts. you can also automatically “explode” notation across multiple instrument parts to speed your workflow. or consolidate multiple parts into one at the click of a button.

keep scores safe during review

review mode locks down your score, enabling collaborators to freely navigate and review your composition. contributors are free to add comments and annotations without the fear of inadvertently changing a score.

perfect and polish your score

with a full suite of notation editing tools and the score inspector, you can control and finesse every element with ease. fine-tune lyrics, dynamics, and charts with desktop publishing tools. plus, add graphics and create your own house styles or manuscript papers to give your scores a unique look and feel.

create parts dynamically

dynamic parts automatically creates individual instrument parts as a score is being created. for copyists, this eliminates the need to extract parts or make destructive changes to a score when prepping sheet music for different instrumental parts. changes to the full score are automatically reflected in the parts, while individual parts can be changed without affecting the full score.

engrave intelligently

create beautiful, legible scores quickly with advanced notation tools and multi-edit capabilities. add slurs, hairpins, ties, or other staff lines across multiple instruments, and make edits to barlines, expression and technique text, and lyrics all in one action. sibelius intelligently spaces notes and elements, keeping everything in perfect alignment.
