We collected their responses in the video above. Take a look.

“Avid is absolutely crucial to my everyday business work. Using Sibelius, using Pro Tools, it’s just collaborating, connecting and feeling that I made an impact and that it was of value to the people that are paying me to do it.”

Jay Terrien

“I write music for film, TV, and videogames. I can switch octaves and explode a chord or a staff—it makes my workflow faster.”

Switch to Sibelius

Why switch from Finale to Sibelius? Not only can you write music faster and easier with Sibelius, as many top composers have stated, but the transition to mastering Sibelius is easy—not to mention we also offer a great crossgrade deal when you make the switch.
