The Norfolk and Pori angled slash chord (ASC) fonts for Sibelius have been updated so that they are as easy as possible to use while adding even more features for power users.

Major updates to the Pori and Norfolk fonts for Sibelius are here. The full Pori suite — the Sibelius-compatible derivative of Steinberg’s Petaluma handwritten font — is now available. There are more angled slash chord symbol fonts for Pori and Norfolk, and lots of other goodies, too.

One of the Pori fonts is something very special.
