When it comes to creating bespoke pieces of music that can be played back with the utmost levels of realism Sibelius is without a doubt one of the best software packages in the business today. Not only has this system been around for more than a decade but some of the most trusted musicians in the world have touted its numerous benefits.
A One-Size-Fits-All Music Creation Package
Sibelius is unique in the fact that it allows users to add multiple instrument layers into their composition. One is literally 'placed' atop another through the use of realistic standard digital sheet music. The user can then play back a single layer or instead choose to listen to the entire piece. Editing is quick and a handy tool bar at the top of the page clearly displays all customisation options.
The Power of Flexibility
It can be argued that the main benefit of Sibelius is the fact that users can customise their experience to best suit unique needs. Favourite instruments can be chosen staff sizes are able to be modified and a massive memory allotment enables multiple pieces to be accessed when the time is right. The newest version (8.4) has also included a virtual on-screen piano.
