Select this option to upgrade your copy of Sibelius 1 to 7.5 to the latest version of Sibelius 8. Your upgrade includes an annual Avid upgrade plan for Sibelius, which provides access to all future software upgrades and expert help for one year from the time of activation, renewable annually for $89/year.

Sibelius is the world’s best-selling music notation software, offering sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools that are proven and trusted by composers, arrangers, publishers, educators, and students alike. And with Sibelius 8, you can access the software in more affordable ways than ever. Compose with a low-cost subscription. Own the software outright. Manage multiple copies with Sibelius network licensing. Or get started with Sibelius | First. The choice is yours. And with the integrated Annotate feature, multi-touch gestures, Surface Pro 3 pen support, and more, Sibelius enables you to express your creativity in brand new ways, whether composing for a live performance, movie, television, media entertainment.

Get Easy Access to the World's Best-Selling Music Notation Tool
In addition to Sibelius being available to own and upgrade as before, you can now subscribe on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, enabling you to access the latest version of the software affordably at any time and pay only when you need it. And you’ll have access to all future Sibelius updates and upgrades as soon as they’re available through the included Avid upgrade plan, as well as to expert help.

Write Music with a Pen on a Surface Pro
Sibelius has been optimized for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, enabling you to add and edit notes quickly with just a tap of the pen, as well as play music in real time using the tablet’s onscreen keyboard and fretboard. Use the Surface Pen’s buttons to select, erase and edit your music. You can even drag the score around and resize objects while inputting notes.

Add Notes and Comments Directly on the Score
With the new Annotate feature, you can create reminders for yourself about music changes as you’re composing, or communicate edits and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. Draw directly on the score using a mouse, trackpad, USB tablet, or Surface Pro 3 Pen. Circle items and write or type comments or instructions to arrangers, players, or students. Because annotations are grouped intelligently and always attached to the bar you add them to, you needn’t worry about losing your notes. Plus, annotations can be switched off so they don’t appear when printing.

Interact with Scores Using Multi-Touch Gestures
If you’re working on a laptop with a trackpad or using a Surface Pro 3, you can quickly zoom in and out of your score by simply using a pinch-zoom gesture, making navigation and editing easier. You can even set predefined zoom levels to zoom in and out with a quick double-tap.

Scan and Transcribe Music with Ease
Sibelius comes bundled with additional tools to enhance your music writing and arrangement workflow. PhotoScore & NotateMe Lite can read notes in sheet music and PDFs in seconds, enabling you to turn tangible compositions into editable digital scores. You can even write music on a tablet or laptop and convert your handwriting into professional scores. And with AudioScore Lite, you can create a score by transcribing music from a CD—or singing or playing an instrument through a microphone—and send it to Sibelius. Need more comprehensive notation scanning and the ability to transcribe audio from MP3s, MIDI, and more? Get (or upgrade to) the Sibelius + Ultimate Bundle, which features PhotoScore & NotateMe Ultimate and AudioScore Ultimate.

Get Up and Running Faster than Ever
Avid has 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. Plus, you’ll get access to support, downloads, and your Avid Marketplace account once you do.

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.
