Increase music sales with Sibelius | Cloud Publishing

For music publishers, Sibelius | Cloud Publishing gives your customers the best online shopping experience imaginable. By integrating the technology into your website, you can provide previews of any sheet music for sale—with full control over the level of customer interaction. Plus, digital rights management (DRM) ensures that scores are secure and cannot be downloaded or printed without purchase first.

When a customer selects a score to view, your site pings Avid’s Sibelius | Cloud Publishing server, which then generates a preview of the score’s first page. You can choose to limit how many pages a customer can view and play prior to purchase, as well as the ability to transpose and/or change instruments. When a customer buys a score, the cloud server generates a high-quality file that’s fit for print.
