Update - Sibelius 7 and More

Posted: July 27, 2011

Sibelius 7

Compatibility

AVID/Sibelius has released Sibelius 7 today and we are very pleased to announce that the current versions of all sound sets are fully supported in Sibelius 7! Nearly all sound sets are Sibelius 7 ready meaning any files needed specifically for Sibelius 7 are available immediately.

Several sound sets, including EWQLSO Play v3, Kontakt 4 and Stormdrum 2 v2 are not yet Sibelius 7 ready as other updates are pending. This does not mean that they will not work in Sibelius 7, only that you'll need to continue to work with the Sibelius 6 files when using Sibelius 7 for a short while longer.

Users will receive specific information regarding the sound sets they are using by email within 24 hours.

Discontinued / Older Versions

Discontinued products, such as the EWQLSO [Kontakt] sound sets, and sound sets that are not the currently available version are not officially supported in Sibelius 7. While they should generally work ok, there is no guarantee of compatibility either with Sibelius 7 or any current sound set. As a reminder, previous versions of any sound set are not supported when used together with the current versions.
