Electronic Musician reviews Sibelius 7: “More intuitive” and “outstanding sounds”


The January 2012 issue of Electronic Musician magazine carries a review of Sibelius 7 from renowned percussionist and composer Gino Robair,

I’m delighted to report that Gino loves Sibelius 7, and has good things to say not only about the new task-orientated user interface sported by the new version, but also loves the new Sibelius 7 Sounds library that is included with the software.

Here are a couple of choice quotes from the review. On the ribbon:

Not only is the Ribbon great for beginners, longtime users will likely find features they didn’t know existed in Sibelius.

On Sibelius 7 Sounds:

The sound library, which spans three DVDs, is top-notch across the board.

And in summary, he concludes:

Sibelius 7 should be a no-brainer for newbies and previous owners alike. Not only is the sound library outstanding, the new text and graphics features, combined with the simplified interface, make it easier than ever to create great-looking scores.

Thanks to Gino and EM for the review! You can read it in full on the Electronic Musician web site, or pick up the January 2012 issue of the magazine from the newsstand now.
