The Sibelius Music Notation Software 8.0 from Avid features an 8.0 systems upgrade from any previous multi-seat network Sibelius software version. It also includes one year of additional support and upgrades. Sibelius software is designed to assist composers, songwriters, teachers, and students in writing music and professionally sharing scores. Compositions created through this software can be easily integrated into most Pro Tools/Media Composer workflows for wide usage. There is a fast and easy activation process, allowing you to quickly start using the software and conveniently move the software to different computers. When used with Windows, the Sibelius software offers an interface that supports high-resolution displays and fast access to features with icons that appear in the ribbon and floating windows.
The 8.0 version of Sibelius software has been optimized for use with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, enabling you to add and edit notes quickly, as well as play music in real time using the tablet's onscreen keyboard and fretboard. The Surface pen's buttons also allow you to select, erase, and edit your music, drag your score, and resize objects while inputting notes. Additionally, using the system's Annotate technology, you can create reminders for yourself or communicate edits and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. The Annotate feature allows you to draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, or USB tablet and switch off the annotations so that they do not appear while printing.
When using the Sibelius software on a laptop with a trackpad or a Surface Pro 3, you can zoom in and out of your score using a pinch-zoom gesture for easy navigation and editing. The system also offers predefined zoom levels to zoom in and out with a quick double-tap. The Sibelius 8.0 software includes PhotoScore and NotateMe Lite technology for quickly reading notes in sheet music and PDF's, turning tangible compositions into editable digital scores, and converting handwritten music into professional scores. Additionally, the system's AudioScore Lite technology can create a score by transcribing music from a CD or from singing and instrument playing through a microphone, sending it directly to Sibelius for use.
