  • Write for your choice of ensemble

    NotePerformer's string sections are created by stacking solo players using section-building technology, allowing near infinite variations in sound—NotePerformer also contains a comprehensive range of woodwinds and brass instruments, British-style brass band, pitched and unpitched percussion, saxophones, piano, harpsichord, theremin, accordions, a pipe organ with multiple stops, guitars, choir vocals and more

  • Easy to install and learn

    Working in Sibelius, NotePerformer instruments are assigned automatically from your score, and you control them from the Sibelius mixer—Sounds are so easy-to-use and contained within a single interface, switching between the built-in sounds and NotePerformer is just a one-click operation in Sibelius

  • Orchestrate more accurately

    NotePerformer did not choose how it should read notation, it was determined from benchmark works by composers such as Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and John Williams—With this combined knowledge under the hood, NotePerformer will add to your skills whether you are a novice or a highly accomplished composer

  • Sound good—with no layout compromise
    Ensure a realistic playback even when writing for multiple instruments on the same staff you will hear each instruments playing—For musicians playing more than one instrument in the same score, you can do real-time instrument changes at any time
  • Concert hall reverb
    The instruments are positioned in the sound field simply by turning the Sibelius mixer's pan knobs, powered by our own powerful panning technology—Giving you that true sensation of being in front row at a concert
