Sibelius First

  • Generic Company Place Holder Sibelius First

Looking to do pop band or gospel arrangements? Scoring a small play? Avid's Sibelius First musical notation program has you covered. A subset of the $599 Sibelius professional application, Sibelius First has all that features most users will need and provides a number of handy templates aimed at the novice. The sounds are decent, but limited compared to the pro version. A complete comparison chart is available at the company's site.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you must register to download the software. The registration routine demands some personal information that shouldn't strictly be necessary.
