Colin said:The student version is limited to 8 staves so is fine for smaller ensembles.
I agree it is seriously worth shopping aroundthe net for sibelius full version.
Careful about the educational version which can only be registered by schools not students or teachers.

It lists the main differences between the two versions.
GJG said:OK, well done Mike, I couldn't find that chart. Even more reason to ask, why are you wasting time with Sibelius, when "PrintMusic" (c. £60) will allow you to create full scores up to 24 staves (more than enough for average brass band scores) and extract parts, etc, etc. ?
jonford said:I used to have PrintMusic, it was ok, but no where near as powerful as Sibelius 3.
Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but please bear in mind that downloading illegal copies only serves to increase the costs to those law abiding people who purchase the programme legally. Maybe if everyone purchased a legal copy the price wouldn't be so high.catchynamegoeshere said:thats right roger...delete my posts. Just because there are people foolish enough to pay 500 quid for a computer program, doesnt mean that we all are. Sibelius charge that price because they know people will pay it.
