Avid is creating a new video tutorial series to help users start working with Sibelius 7.5. Entitled, appropriately enough, “Get Started Fast with Avid Sibelius 7.5”, the five-part series is designed mostly for those new to Sibelius.
Lesson 2 of the series, “Score setup and navigation”, was posted online yesterday. It includes a look at Sibelius 7.5’s new Timeline feature as well as more the familiar ways of getting around of the program that are common to Sibelius 7, like the Ribbon:
Yes, that’s my voice on the video, and I’ll be making the rest of the tutorials, too. The first lesson focused on the fundamentals of note entry, and on basic copy and paste operations. Lesson 3 will cover items you’ll find in the Notations and Text tabs. In the final two lessons, I’ll review transposing, playback, video, parts, printing, and the new exporting and sharing features in Sibelius 7.5.
Avid has said that Sibelius 7.5 will be available worldwide later this month, although a specific date has not yet been announced. You can find a comprehensive review of Sibelius 7.5’s new features elsewhere on this blog.
Even if you’re using Sibelius already, if you have 15 minutes a week to spare, you may well find a few useful nuggets in the tutorials — so why not have a look? The videos are rolling out every Thursday for the remainder of this month, and you can find the entire series directly on Avid’s web site.
