    Avid Sibelius 8 - "Still a big mess but now you pay more for it"

    11/09/17

    Decade-old bugs not patched, same chaotic layout, still hundreds of plugins to sift through to find a workaround for a bug or a feature that should already be in the core program, the transport is still so rudimentary that it's practically useless, s...

    StaffPad StaffPad - "Not that natural..."

    01/10/16

    This software works correctly, but it only recognizes a single, very precise type of handwriting, hence a real waste of time as you have to erase and rewrite endlessly until the software finally understands. To me, the introduction video is misleadin...

    Avid Sibelius 7 - "Not Perfect, but still better than Finale"

    01/03/15

    I finally bailed on Finale after several years of working with it. (It was the standard program at my university so it's what I started with) Thank goodness I did. I now use Sibelius for any score or lead sheet I need to produce. I'm not saying th...

    MakeMusic Finale 2014 - "Just buy Sibelius"

    11/11/14

    Well here we are again, Finale. I don't know why I expected better of you because you never deliver. Too be honest I only even have this software so that I can still look at work I did in University, where Finale was the program we all had to use in ...

    07/30/14

    As an arranger and composer I've been faced multiple times with the task of choosing a writing software, and time after time I've chosen Sibelius. The seventh version was a little hard to get used to, though, as major changes were introduced in the i...

    Avid Sibelius 7 - "Just a notation software."

    07/24/14

    One of the first things to notice, it's that the program will take some time to install it (it requires a minimum of 40 gigabytes free space) and make sure that you have a better hardware than the one specified on the minimum requirements section, ot...

    Avid Sibelius 7 - "So-called "professional" notation is a BIG JOKE!"

    05/01/14

    Sibelius 7 is a TRAIN WRECK! SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE "Stable"??? LOL!!!!! OVERALL OPINION It's amazing how musicians will pretty much put up with any crap thrown at them... What passes as "professional" notation software is a joke. Obviously no s...
