Sibelius 8.3 is available. It introduces the ability to individually color notes, improves upon 8.2’s sliding feature by more intelligently grouping rests, and improves the independent enharmonic spelling feature introduced in 8.2.
The 34th annual Major Orchestra Librarians’ Association (MOLA) conference will be held in Helsinki, Finland from May 13-16, 2016. I’ll be presenting sessions on Sibelius (the software, that is), Finale, and StaffPad, and Daniel Spreadbury will be giving a keynote presentation on the new Steinberg scoring software.
The latest StaffPad update brings support for pickup bars, D.C./D.S./Coda repeats, bar repeats, automatic drum kit notation, plus a host of miscellaneous improvements and performance upgrades that add up to a very solid update.
Sibelius 8.2 introduces the ability to enharmonically spell notes differently in a part and the score, a new sliding feature which moves notes and rests horizontally, and better placement of repeat barlines in relation to time signatures.
