Expand your Cloud Sharing storage
Get more space to share and store more music—even beyond the 20-score limit if using Sibelius (formerly Sibelius | First)—with an Avid premium cloud storage plan. And if you’re a Pro Tools user, you’ll be able to host cloud collaboration projects in the same space too.
Make multiple text changes simultaneously
Need to add or update expression text in more than one part of a score? You can now select multiple staves or notes and add or edit expression text to all instruments at once. You can do the same to add or edit technique text and other text types.
NEW - Add comments directly on a score (new for Sibelius; currently in Sibelius | Ultimate)
With the Annotate feature, you can draw directly on a score and communicate edits, instruction, and feedback to others, streamlining collaboration and review. All annotations are grouped intelligently and always remain attached to the bar to which you’ve added them.
