The Sibelius for mobile iOS app allows users to alternate between iPad and desktop without needing to import or export files — with projects saved to iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, or other iOS-supported cloud services.
This mobile version also takes full advantage of the Apple Pencil and iPad touch experience. It is designed to reimagine the pen and paper experience of composing music, but now on tablet devices.
"Music composition is no longer about just sitting in front of a piano or a desktop, working on a score alone," explained Sam Butler, Avid’s Director of Product Management in a press release. "Creators of all kinds have shifted to more remote collaboration and new workflows demanding more sharing and more flexibility.
"Sibelius for mobile opens up new workflows, allowing users to work on their pieces anywhere, to collaborate smoothly with others, and to showcase their work at a moment’s notice," he continued. "Fitting right into the new paradigm of music creation."
