Avid has released version 8.7 of Sibelius, its music composition and notation software.
The update delivers groundbreaking enhancements to Sibelius and Sibelius | First, including a revolutionary way to share music online: Cloud Sharing.
Sibelius | Cloud Sharing enables users to share scores directly from Sibelius to their own personal cloud space, post them on social media sites or embed them in webpages. Users also have the ability to invite others to view and playback compositions using any computer, laptop, or mobile device from anywhere in the world—whether in the studio, classroom or on a sound stage.
Scores are hosted on Avid’s cloud services powered by the MediaCentral® Platform, the industry’s most open, tightly integrated and efficient platform designed for media. Any changes made to the score can be dynamically pushed to the cloud, automatically updating the content online—all directly from the Sibelius application.
“The new version of Sibelius is part of Avid’s commitment to providing the most comprehensive tools and workflow solutions that make the entire music writing, collaboration and delivery experience easier than ever,” said Dana Ruzicka, vice president and chief product officer at Avid. “Sibelius | Cloud Sharing gives Avid’s preeminent user community of composers, educators and music bloggers a revolutionary way to share their content with the world.”
Sibelius 8.7 with Sibelius | Cloud Sharing is available now and is free to all Sibelius and Sibelius | First customers with an active subscription or support plan.
