    Sibelius 7 upgrade

    Still learning to use it, but well worth the upgrade. Probably need a Sibelius tutorial. Next step is Mbox.

    Great Service, Great Stuff

    I purchased Sibelius 7 at the lowest price anywhere I looked and customer service and shipment were smooth and flawless. Then in a couple of days I received a follow-up call from Sweetwater making sure I'd received everything in good order. Now I'm printing out beautiful notation charts for the band...and, I'll be back!

    SIbelius 7 upgraded from Sibelius 4

    Love it! So much more user friendly with a better range of sounds from orchestral to world instruments. Very intuitive software to adapt to, not a walk in the park, but I found I can get what I want with minimal searching. The sound through earphones is incredible.
    Finally, I tried to buy this directly from Sibelius/Avid and got nowhere-no dealer returned my calls, the contact on the website got you to a user forum etc. I almost gave up.
    Then I stumbled across Sweetwater who not only carried Sibelius, but had a phone number, and very helpful staff! Awesome!.
    I love Sibelius and for any other purchases I will turn to Sweetwater first.

    Sib 7.03

    Sb 7 is a worthy upgrade--it requires "more computer" than the earlier versions but the sounds are really nice - saxes sound more saxophone-like sand the other sounds are also good. I did add memory because I couldn't load all the sounds w/ 2G. When they say '4G' , believe 'em!
    I'm glade that I upgraded - nice to have those soounds.

    Don't Bother, try Logic's Notation

    I had Sibelius 5 before I was forced to upgrade due to apple's new OS. I was very familiar with the program; I'm not any more. Sibelius 7 is very different. Without spending too much time, it seems like a new program. I might as well spend the time learning Logic's notation, saving a little cash not bothering with Sibelius. I was a fan of this program because it was easier than finale, but now it's just a pain. I don't care about 'new and improved sounds.' It was fine the way it was.
