Sibelius | First makes it easy for anyone to compose music. Built on the foundation of Sibelius 8 - the world's best-selling notation software - Sibelius | First 8 is powerful enough to create professional scores, yet simple enough for beginners, enthusiasts, and musicians to use. Get timesaving new features and hundreds of improvements to drive your creativity - without sacrificing the ease you love about Sibelius | First.

NEW in Sibelius | First

Share music in the cloud - just added

Sibelius | Cloud Sharing opens up a whole new way of working. This groundbreaking technology enables you to share scores from Sibelius | First to your own personal cloud space (included free), or embed scores in a webpage, and invite anyone to flip through pages and play your compositions using any computer, laptop, or mobile device. Its ideal for previewing and reviewing musical works in the studio, in the classroom, or on a sound stage.

Share your music more easily

Want to let your client, colleague, or friends hear your latest composition? You now have the option of exporting your score as an MP3 audio file, making it faster and easier to send your music through email or over Skype, or even posting it across all of your social network channels. Not only do you have control over the bit depth and sample rate, Sibelius will automatically generate ID3 tags from your Score Info dialog.

Effortlessly glide through music with Magnetic Glissando

Create beautiful glissando and portamento lines easily with new Magnetic Glissando automatically attaching and optimally positioning lines between the start and end notes. Should you need to move a note, the glissandi or portamento line will automatically follow the notehead it's attached to as you move it. This saves you tons of time from manually positioning lines when you create a slide or edit notes.

Collaborate more easily with MusicXML

Working with other composers who use different notation software? With improvements to MusicXML import and export that preserve the integrity and layout of the original notation, it's easier than ever to work on music coming from or going to other applications.

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.

Hear your score like never before

Just like big brother Sibelius, Sibelius | First now delivers more expressive playback with Espressivo 2. This revamped playback mode can interpret the nuances in your score better than ever before, so all of your instrumentation sounds more cohesive, fluid, and natural. It also enables you to add a more realistic rhythmic feel to any individual part in your score easily by simply selecting from a variety of presets.

Compose at warp speed

Sibelius | First includes many of the same enhancements and improvements found in the latest version of Sibelius. Slide notes and rests using keyboard shortcuts. Color individual notes and/or chords to highlight parts or make them easier to read or learn. Stay up to date with the new Application Manager. Create on the latest Mac and Windows OSs. And enjoy an even smoother composing experience with over 200 software improvements.

Work faster and with more detail

See every detail of your score in stunning clarity. Sibelius | First 8 features an updated interface and adds new support for high-resolution Windows displays. Gain faster access to the features you need most with new and improved icons that appear in the ribbon and floating windows. And save time with new Magnetic Layout enhancements, which automatically reposition rests optimally in your score.

Get easier access to just the core Sibelius tools

If you're new to music notation or a composing enthusiast who doesn't need all of the advanced arranging, engraving, and customization features of Sibelius, Sibelius | First 8 is the perfect accompanist. And it's now more affordable than ever.
