Avid has released Sibelius 2019.5, its latest update to Sibelius. The release contains no new features, but it brings a number of important improvements and fixes mostly in the areas of audio, playback, and printing.
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.
Sibelius 2019.4 introduces loop playback and a new scrubbing option. In addition, you can now mark up a score in Review Mode, finding instruments and plug-ins has gotten easier, and there are a couple of engraving and notation iterations.
Sibelius 2019.1, released to coincide with the opening of the 2019 NAMM Show, introduces a new Review Mode, adds some playback enhancements and integrates Avid Link, the new way for users to manage their Avid account, licensing, and subscriptions.
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.
