At the 2015 NAMM Show, Avid introduced Sibelius Cloud Publishing, a new publishing technology that’s designed to make it easy for you to publish sheet music online.

Once published, you can share the score or embed it on your site, and people can view, play, transpose, print, and purchase scores, using any current web browser or mobile device, including Android, iOS, and Linux.


  • Easy implementation: Publishers simply embed code to display and deliver scores through online store pages, without requiring visitors to install a browser plug-in.
  • Security: Digital rights management ensures that scores are secure and cannot be downloaded or printed in full without purchasing them first.
  • Cross-platform compatibility: Customers can use a Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, or Linux operating system and enjoy the same level of score interaction, no matter what device they use. Enhanced customer experience: Customers can play scores, transpose to different keys, and change instruments directly in a web browser. Future upgrades to the Cloud Publishing server playback engine and samples are instantly available to all publishers and customers.
  • High-quality score printing: Once customers purchase music, the Cloud Publishing server sends a high-quality printable version to the webstore page for customers to print.
  • Preview and playback options: Publishers can shape the experience further by setting how many pages can be shown prior to a purchase, as well as other preview and playback choices.
  • Complete Sibelius integration: Customers receive the full experience when a Sibelius file or secure Sibelius file from Sibelius Internet Edition is used for the score. The technology also handles scores prepared in PDF format.
  • Control over sales: All transactions occur on the publisher’s website.
  • Reduced preparation time: Music publishers can deliver this experience without the pain-staking manual preparation previously required, since Sibelius | Cloud Publishing manages those tasks automatically.

Sibelius | Cloud Publishing will be a service offered through the Avid Marketplace. Details on availability are to come via the Avid site.
