Sibelius Update –
November 9, 2012
Continuing our coverage of the situation with Sibelius notation software, it has been reported by our friends at Arts Journal that Steinberg Software (the makers of Cubase among other things) has hired the former development staff of Sibelius presumably with the intention of launching a new notation program to replace Sibelius. Although Sibelius has been rumored to be on the chopping block as a software platform, Avid, the owners of Sibelius, have said nothing to that effect. An anonymous source within Avid assures me that the software is alive and well and will continue to be developed and supported by Avid.
