Avid Sibelius First Product Description

Sibelius First is the fastest and easiest way for everyone to start writing music. From aspiring composers and songwriters, to teachers and students. Even if you’re more comfortable playing instruments than using notation software, the intuitive interface will guide your songwriting process. Magnetic Layout and other timesaving tools make it easy to get professional results fast and the premium sound library plays back your compositions in stunning detail. When you’re done, choose from a variety of ways to introduce your music to the world - make a video of your score, share directly to social media, export for iPad, and more.

Because the user interface is so intuitive, you’ll be able to jump in and start writing music right away. Choose the note input method that’s most comfortable for you—play a MIDI instrument, transcribe audio, or scan sheet music. Revolutionary features like Magnetic Layout automatically take care of the details, so you can write music and create print-quality scores with ease. If you get stuck or want to take your skills even further, just check out the how-to and help content.

Want to hear how your ideas will sound in real life?
