During the years we have tested and worked with most of the major notation softwares, of which Finale and the Swedish Igor also sponsored our work.
But we were never fully satisfied. Either the actual notation took too long a time, or the notes started jumping around once they were inserted. Also, we are musicians firstwe don't want to study a software for 200 hours before we can work with it, we want to get an arrangement done so we can start playing it
Thus our meeting with Sibelius came as a relief. Very fast, very easyand you don't forget 90% of it if you aren't working with it for a month or two. After Sibelius, there are no other alternativesit's Sibelius or back to pen and paper!
In Sweden, Sibelius is distributed by Fitzpatrick Import Group.
