Unrivalled expressiveness and feel
With the unique and fully redesigned Espressivo 2.0 feature, Sibelius gives you complete control over and customization of the rhythmic feel of any individual part to produce more expressive and realistic musical phrasings. And because the software can now better interpret such notation distinctions as tempo markings, metric emphasis, grace notes, mordents, caesuras, and breath marks on playback, you can hear every nuance of your score—the way you intended it to be heard.

Accelerated navigation
With the new Timeline window, you get a quick view of the entire structure of your score—no matter how large or complex—enabling you to navigate to any part fast for editing or playback. Simply click on any bar, in the timecode ruler, or on any landmark—the important objects that make up your score, including rehearsal marks, repeat structures, comments, key signatures, tempo, and more—to jump immediately to that section.

Easy collaboration and sharing
Get all of the score sharing and social media features of Sibelius | First in Sibelius, enabling you to collaborate more easily with others and distribute your compositions for the world to hear. Share scores through email, upload and publish them as sheet music on ScoreExchange.com, and even share your composition as a video or audio file on YouTube, Facebook, and SoundCloud.

Export video of your composition
Save a video file of your score to share your work with others on a DVD or online. Sibelius can export in a variety of resolutions—up to 1080p—in QuickTime format (.mov) on Mac or Windows Media Video (.wmv) on Windows, enabling others to see and hear your work without requiring Sibelius.

Full Scorch app integration
Export Sibelius scores directly to Avid Scorch on your iPad for fully interactive playback, practice, performance, and publishing. Sibelius automatically optimizes your score for iPad display, paying special consideration to page orientation, number of staves, margin sizes, and more.

Localized for Brazil and Russia
If Brazilian Portuguese or Russian is your native tongue, Sibelius 7.5 offers new native support for these languages in addition to English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.

Sibelius will even include cautionary accidentals automatically—helping you to produce performance-ready scores every time.   Switch to Sibelius from Finale Switch to Sibelius from Finale
