As part of Avid’s continued commitment to Sibelius and its community, head of development Bobby Lombardi and director of engineering Randy Fayan were in the UK this week to meet with customers, revealing plans for the product, its development and support.


The guys, who were also joined by Sam Butler of Avid’s UK support team at Pinewood, held a series of positive meetings – with Audio Network at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, the Musicians’ Union, Music Producers Guild, British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors and the Music Publishers Association. One key topic discussed was the benefit that would come from closely aligning Sibelius product development with Avid’s successful Pro Tools and Media Composer development teams.


The visit marked the first stage of the new team’s plans to build on the existing relationships with Sibelius’ incredibly passionate UK user community. The team outlined the plans to engage with users more regularly, collect feedback and ensure that the community knows how devoted Avid is to the continued success of the product. Also, they explained the planned investment being made to the Sibelius line of products, as well as the series of upgrades recently announced.


In addition to the UK visit, Avid is also delivering improvements to the Sibelius support structure - from feedback and development ideas from UK customers to becoming more visible and open to discussion through the Sibelius Blogs on Avid Community.


As part of this initiative, the last 12 to 18 months’ worth of blogs from Sibelius blog - the independent site for users of the software - will be added alongside three new guest bloggers, David Tobin, John Hinchey, and Robert Puff. Bobby Lombardi will also be a regular contributor with blogs updated weekly from w/c 15 October with Sibelius, music composition or music notation related news and comment.


Also, there will be an increase in communication on support and development from the Sibelius development team across online communities such as Sibelius Feedback Community (similar to our Pro Tools Feedback Community, on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.


If you have any further questions on Sibelius, please contact Bobby Lombardi, Avid audio product management.


In other Sibelius news, Avid is currently running a promotion on Sibelius 7 upgrades, which are discounted by 25% until 31 December.
