Today Avid released Sibelius 2018.4, a broad release with many new features and some longstanding requests addressed. Areas of improvement include multi-edits for text, a new note spacing rule affecting multiple voices and other cases, deleting and adding bars at the beginning of the score, smarter ties, and many more other enhancements. Avid also announced a new naming strategy where the pro-level version is now called “Sibelius Ultimate”.
Avid announced its board of directors has terminated the employment of Louis Hernandez, Jr., former chief executive officer, effective immediately, “due to violations of Company policies related to workplace conduct.” Jeff Rosica has been appointed chief executive officer.
Cloud Sharing (in Sibelius 8.7 and later) identifies a score using a hidden file ID that is created when a score is saved or exported in Sibelius. It is important to understand that if you make a copy of a score outside of Sibelius, the file ID will not change. Bob Zawalich discusses where multiple variant copies of a score are generated from a single score, and how to use Cloud Sharing with such a score.
With its release coinciding with the opening of the 2018 NAMM Show, Sibelius 2018.1, the latest update to Sibelius, brings broad improvements to how users perform common tasks in Sibelius like placing slurs, hairpins, other lines, ties, special barlines, and a new note editing feature.
The 2018 NAMM Show will take place from Thursday, January 25 through Sunday, January 28, 2018, at the Anaheim Convention Center. We’ll have blog coverage from the show; here’s what to expect.
