Sibelius 5 Adds Full VST/AU Support, More

by , 8:25 AM EDT, June 12th, 2007

Sibelius Software announced Sibelius 5 on Tuesday. The new version of the music notation application added full support for VST and Audio Units plug-ins along with Ideas Hub - a feature that lets users capture, tag, and find musical ideas.

The update also bundles Sibelius Sounds Essentials with 2GB of sounds, SoundWorld which lets Sibelius select the best sound for any device, and Panorama for easier score composition and editing.

Sibelius 5 is a Universal Binary application, allowing it to run natively on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

Sibelius 5 is available for pre-order now, and should ship the last week of June. It is priced at US$599.
