The installation was without problem. I had a little trouble with kontakt gold (we must respect what is said in the instructions and do not install kontakt silver. We install kontakt gold and then they ask us the cd that will install Sibelius him m I kontakt silver)

No incompatibility.

Configuration gnrale clear.

Notice: norm! It's a bit dcourageant, but fortunately, Sibelius is so intuitive that I use without using the manual mostly.


I have a pentium 4 2.4 Ghz with 1GB Ram rcemment, 80 GB hard drive. And yet, if I run a partition with 16 gates rverbration, a saccade. on the other hand, without rverbration, it must be 1GB of RAM and the software runs without any problem. With 80 GB, 45 GB used with dj, a paddle at times. It was enough that I empty some of my hard drive so that Sibelius no longer crashes. Be careful to pc with a drive smaller than today.

on the other hand, those who have 256 MB or 512 MB of RAM, 1GB go, otherwise, has not load all the sounds and plant.

The hardware configuration + software is stable, it is ttonner a bit to find the right lag, especially if you have a 3 year old pc like mine, but is fast enough.


I use it for about 2-3 weeks.

I think I like everything in Sibelius. Except that sometimes, for the polyphony is a bit broken up, if we start with the two voices and want to add the one we galre a little bit, but frankly, I am extreme extremely happy, really, for me is the software you have to go fast and sound quality (except the violin solo, Finale 2005 is better here, fortunately we can combine with Sibelius Garritan Orchestra for Personnal sounds great conductor)

Sibelius is convenient, fast and intuitive. Ideal.

Finale 2005, compared to him, is just as effective but much more technical. Galre to swap it over doorways to get the notes (for example, to transform a black tip white, just to set the black point and press the pav numrique corresponding with Sibelius. It deletes the following note. With the final, you have to first delete the following note and then we can transform the black tip white. It can not but stepfather Eventually, it breaks trs-foot), it is necessary to memorize all the shortcuts to the notes (whereas with Sibelius, the pav numrique as listed, no need to mmorisation).

With Finale 2005, I work a lot with the mouse, with Sibelius, many with the keyboard (since most intuitive keyboard shortcuts).

Both are software professionals, made it possible to obtain flawless and sounds good, but Sibelius can work faster and more intuitive Manir.

I could buy the software both in the field of Education, so a price infrieur that found around (700) and that I find outrageous. However, even if I had to pay 700, if one intends to make the composition, the software purchase.

In the end, if I had the choice again, I do it again because it does not go a day without whom I thank the developers of Sibelius that have not usurped their reputable when they say "we like to say that with Sibelius, it is 1% perspiration and 99% inspiration "
