New Features For Sibelius | First 8

Rest Collision Avoidance & Musical Grouping

In the newest version of Sibelius First rests now avoid collisions with notes as you input and edit notes. When working in multiple voices, rests are now automatically vertically grouped with the pitches of surrounding notes. The result is clearer, more beautiful, accurate notation without having to manually adjust it yourself by hand.

Nth time ending lines now align perfectly with the bar beneath every time, with no extra adjustment required from you. The way that repeat bar lines and time signatures are displayed on your score has also been adjusted, so that they are now in the correct order.

Slide & Move Notes In Time

You can now move a note or rest within time without having to use your mouse or use cut-and-paste. Sibelius will, in most cases, move your selection by a musically appropriate amount, given the current time signature and the length of your selection. If you slide your selection into existing notation, Sibelius will swap your selection with the notes at the destination.

New Licensing Options

Sibelius | First now comes in the same two licensing options that you find in Sibelius: perpetual and subscription (available on month-to-month and annual plans). Sibelius | First is still available as a perpetual license as well, which works the same as Sibelius: you purchase a perpetual license to keep, and included in your purchase is a year’s worth of upgrades. After one year, you can choose to renew your annual support contract to continue to receive software upgrades. Your perpetual license never expires though, so you’ll always be able to use your Sibelius | First software at the last version you’ve downloaded—even if you allow your upgrade plan to lapse in the future.

Other Upgrades

  • New staff sizes
  • Espressivo 2 for more realistic, expressive playback
  • A Tempo marking now returns to the last tempo change
  • Support for high density displays on Windows
  • Added support for Windows 8 and 10
  • Added support for macOS 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra
  • 64-bit only architecture
  • Multi-touch support for the Microsoft Surface Pro and Apple track pads (and other touch-compatible devices)
  • Avid Application Manager – a centralized location to manage your licenses, replacing Avid License Control
  • Over 200 general stability improvements
