Avid has released Sibelius 2019.7, its latest update to Sibelius. 2019.7 contains no new major features, but there are some MusicXML improvements and fixes in the areas of stability, fonts, PDF export, and playback.
The plug-and-play NotePerformer sound library for music notation software is on sale. Normally available for $129, Avid is selling NotePerformer — which will work with Finale and Dorico, as well as Sibelius — at a special price of $78 through April 30, 2019.
As the sun set on the first day of the 2019 NAMM show, I talked with Mark Adler, MakeMusic’s director of production, and Jonathan Tschiggfrie, product manager of audio and notation, about the show, Finale v26, and more.
NotePerformer 3.2 is out with improvements to its plug-and-play sound library. Most significantly, for Dorico users, multiple articulations will now work with any new scores. The update also includes a number of performance fixes for all users.
NotePerformer 3.1 is out with some major updates. The main improvements are the vastly improved Finale implementation and the ability to override instruments directly from the NotePerformer mixer, but there’s lots more for users of Sibelius, Finale, and Dorico.
