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


    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..."


    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 - julian_r7's review


    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."


    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!"


    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…
