Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Daniel Spreadbury - 27 Apr 09:00PM (edited 27 Apr 09:05PM)
We are pleased to announce that we have released Sibelius 6.2, which is a free update for existing Sibelius 6 users.

What's new


Sibelius 6.2 does not contain any significant new features, but it does include a number of important bug fixes, including a (partial) solution for the intermittent crashes that some Mac users have been experiencing when saving PDF files (see here).

Sibelius 6.2 is a multi-lingual application, allowing you to choose which language to run the software in (English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish), and also includes support for different keyboard languages.

A high-level overview of the changes, and a comprehensive PDF listing every change in detail, is available here:

http://www.sibelius.com/helpcenter/updates/sibelius6/6_2_0_improvements.html

Downloading the update


To get the update, simply choose Help > Check For Updates from within Sibelius, and you will be taken to the appropriate page on the site. Alternatively, you can download the installer from here:

http://www.sibelius.com/helpcenter/updates/sib6_2_download.html

The download is only accessible to customers who already have Sibelius 6: you will be asked to provide your serial number when you download the software in order to verify that you are entitled to download the installer.

There is no updater that updates previous versions of Sibelius 6 to Sibelius 6.2, due to some major changes in the way the application is organised on disk to accommodate multi-language support.

You should download the Sibelius 6.2 installer and simply run it: the installer will uninstall your previous version and replace it with the new version.

Sibelius 6.2 is not currently available on DVD-ROM, and new copies of Sibelius purchased for the time being (either physical copies or downloads from the Avid online store) will continue to be Sibelius 6.1 until Sibelius 6.2 stock is available. Customers who purchase Sibelius 6.1 can of course download a free update to Sibelius 6.2.

Running Sibelius 5 and Sibelius 6 on the same computer


If you run Sibelius on Mac and need to run both Sibelius 5 and Sibelius 6.2 on the same computer, please read this information carefully.

Scorch


We have also updated Scorch to version 6.2 today, and you can download the latest version here.

Thanks for this, Daniel!

I notice a couple of small items that might be of interest to some on this forum:

* new option: Truncate notes at end of bars when using Edit > Repeat on the Note Input page of Preferences

This appears to be the "reinstatement of the old R behavior" that had been requested a number of times

* New Hyphens allowed to disappear when syllables are too close together option on the Text page of House Style > Engraving Rules, switched on in both new scores and existing scores.

This looks like it will allow you to ask Sib to never remove hyphens, no matter how tight the spacing is.

Some folks should be made very happy by these changes, not to mention the rather large fact that you can now change the language on the fly. Very cool!

And this one I like very very much!

•Sibelius 6 now correctly recognizes Kontakt 4 as a Kontakt-type device, allowing it to load sounds automatically, provided a suitable sound set is available.

I love Sibelius!

I'm most excited about embedding OpenType fonts in EPS files and forcing hyphens to always appear in lyrics. My Sibelius 6 upgrade package arrived today and I'm installing as I write.

The new version installed OK and seems to work. However, when it first loaded it displayed a message, something like, "This is a competitive cross-upgrade, you must fill and and mail something". Mine ISN'T what it was accused of being, and I have nothing to mail in. This is just to check that it will continue working, and isn't just on a short-term registration that will lapse if I don't mail in the paper that I don't have.

It isn't necessary, unless for some reason you have lost your Sibelius 6 DVD-ROM and need to reinstall everything, including Sibelius Sounds Essentials.

It sort of is: the SWEX or SCEX serial number you have was once used for crossgrading from the Acorn version and is nowadays used for crossgrading from Finale et al. In any case, no need for you to worry: Sibelius won't bother you with that message again.

I'll see whether it's possible to get the download hosted on another server. This may take a few days to sort out.

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Peter Roos - 28 Apr 11:59PM
Congratulations Daniel and team! Lots of cool changes - ia the six language support (be careful before you switch to Japanese just for kicks or you might not be able to get back to English ;-), recognition of Kontakt 4 as a kontakt type, option to adjust page size when adding instruments, etc.

Quick question: does the recognition of Kontakt 4 also work if the 64 bit version of Kontakt 4 is used, jBridged? The 'Kontakt' version of Kontakt in my playback window appears to be the version that has 64 outputs which isn't supported in jBridge (and unless I am mistaken neither in Sibelius). When trying to activate it it crashes jbridge. That hasn't changed btw, occurred in 6.1 as well.

ps download here on the West Coast took little over an hour

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Ronald Pearl - 29 Apr 03:35AM
While I will almost certainly move up to 6.2, is it necessary if 6.1 is working fine? Or is that there might be a 6.3 which requires 6.2 to precede it?

Things are fine as they are, so I'm loath to mess with a good thing.

And maybe a little lazy...

Spoke too soon - read the pdf and it seems like a lot of cool new improvements. Now just have to wait for a little less traffic to download.

I didn't see this, but is there a soundset for JABB w/ARIA?

Jeez but is the site slow at the moment as everyone tries to download the update.

Just a quick question - I have downloaded the update only. Can I just install this on top of the existing Sibelius 6.1? Do I need to de-register just in case anything happens and I have to reinstall from my DVD?

Cheers
Debbie

Peter: yes, Sibelius will detect Kontakt 4 when run via jBridge.

Ron: there are no plans for any future versions of Sibelius 6. Sibelius 6.2 does include a sound set for JABB3.

Debbie: you don't need to unregister before you start. Simply install Sibelius 6.2 on top of your existing copy and all will be well.

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Peter Smith - 29 Apr 10:18PM
I'm now on my ninth attempt to download the file. Even though I'm using DownThemAll, the download is apparently non-resuming, so that after each failed attempt I have to start again from the beginning rather than picking up from the point where the download failed. I'm not sure quite what is involved in making a download resumable, but for a large file like this, it would surely make sense, both in terms of keeping the customers happy and in saving Avid’s bandwidth - I have now downloaded the first part of the file nine times!

Hi Peter

I have the same experience as you, and live an hour or so east of London.

My ISP says that there are serious problems around London with re-routing of internet traffic due to the Paddington fire last month which knocked out an important node. This would only affect users with some ISPs, as it's dependent on the path of the download through sub-ethernet spacetime.

Or something. I tend to glaze over during conversations with my ISP's tech support. Anyway, that's his excuse for recently terrible download speeds from particular servers. Does anyone think that seems likely?

In the third attempt I succeeded! I was sleeping - maybe that's the way ;-)

However now I came to think - why are there two versions, is it just to have a full install for the next time you need to install Sib62 on e new pc, or would we miss any content by upgrading with the small file?

If I use the full, are we recommended to uninstall 6.1 first? (sorry if this is already covered).

Oh dear - here, there was no difference in download time. I just chose the same link up at the top of this thread - of course 500+MB is huge but there was no "netcongestion" or anything to indicate a slower download time. I'm sure sorry. Hope that will work soon - I've only had a plug-in issue with 6.2 which I'm going to address in a new thread now...

Thanks Daniel,
Fingers crossed then that nothing goes wrong!.

Thankfully, although I am in the UK, Sheffield in fact, my download of the full Sibelius 6.2 included Sound Libraries only took 1 hour.

I'm on talktalk and was getting 500kb/sec plus.

I sympathise with those others in the UK that live in congested areas, where lets face it we are not all getting the fantastic speeds that have been advertised for broadband.

Anyway, here I go with the update.

The downloads are not resumable because they're protected behind a serial number check, which affects how they are served.

I am working on getting the downloads hosted on faster, dedicated servers, but I'm not having any luck just yet. Hopefully I'll manage to accomplish this next week.

Hi all,

Two things : 1) Sibelius 6.2 is great ! I like it very much; the possibility to choose the langage is perfect. 2) Yes it was really difficult to get the download ! And I also was not asked to enter my serial to be allowed to download, nor to enter it once runing Sibelius 6.2 for the first time on my Mac. I also got a strange "invisible" Sibelius.app icone in the Mac OS X Dock ! I could manage it and get the normal icone back by setting the "Authorisations" to "Read and write" for the Sibelius.app ! Some troubles, but all seam's to be ok for now.

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Matthew Fields - 03 May 11:49AM
Observations since installing it last night:

1) I don't normally run as Administrator--I work most of the time in a limited-rights profile. If malware were to try to use my credentials to install itself, it'd be blocked by the limited rights of my profile. So naturally I switched to my administrative account to install the update, then switched back to try it out.

2) In my orchestra score, bar numbers now appear over the strings even when the first violins are off the score. This is a good bug fix, though it did mean a full pass through the score looking for format errors.

3) As with 6.1, at startup, 6.2 opens its main window in front of its splash screen on my system, but the main window doesn't respond to events until the startup sequence finishes and the splash screen is dismissed. Nothing new here, but apparently there's some combination of features of WinXP that just make this happen.

4) On a per-user-profile basis, the first time it is launched, it opens a modal dialog box reminding the user of the licensing terms. Once that is dismissed, it continues loading, and that dialog box doesn't appear on subsequent launches.

I feel your frustration! In the circumstances, as I see you are UK based, if you pm me your snail mail address I would be happy to send you a CD of the upgrade installer, if this would help. And, of course, if this would be in keeping with any Sib user license obligations, Daniel? It would give me something positive to do while following the mire that has become the post UK election TV coverage!

I have to say like many who have posted here I to have been trying for weeks to download the new update. I find it hard to believe a large global company like AVID who owns Sibelius is having trouble hosting an update file ! ? and then have to try and find a faster server, which so far seems to have taken over a week to resolve and is still not resolved.

Is the company still run from someone's bedroom?

A large company should have had thought of the potential problems and hosted the file in more than one place. It shouldn't be taking this long to find a server.

Yes, thank you sibelius for allowing the old 'r' behavior back in. I was really afraid it was gone permanently.

One question regarding the improvements made to slur appearance and spacing improvements in general. If we have made our own manuscript paper, are there specific settings somewhere in house-styles that we should turn on to get these improvements? I saw the note about sibelius' manuscript papers being updated in this regard, and wondered how we could update our own.

I'm looking forward to the update, many thanks!

Mark: the company is not run from somebody's bedroom, but for various boring internal reasons there is currently nobody dedicated to handling these sorts of requests for me, and the folks I'm working with to resolve the situation have yet to provide a solution. It's complicated by the fact that we do need to protect the download behind a serial number check. I am still working on this and I will post here when more information is available.

Nathan: all of the new settings in Engraving Rules are documented in the release notes provided, so you can simply read about them and decide whether or not you want to switch them on.

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Nathan Shirley - 12 May 02:57AM
Right. I guess what I was getting at is the statement (8.8) in the PDF where it says-

"The default house styles included with Sibelius have been updated to ensure they have the most up-to-date Magnetic Layout settings."

And then in 8.2 regarding Magnetic Layout, it lists many tweaks like this one-

"The bounding box of flat signs has been tweaked to allow slurs to route a little closer to them than before."

Are these Magnetic Layout changes things that are not by default applied to our existing manuscript papers? If I need to go into 'Magnetic Layout Options' and make this tweak for my own manuscript papers, the PDF doesn't list a number for how much the flat sign bounding box has been adjusted. Perhaps this is under engraving rules? Or are all of these Magnetic Layout adjustments made permanent, so that even with an old manuscript paper, no updates are necessary?

Thanks again, hopefully the last question is correct and I've just overcomplicated things.

Re: Sibelius 6.2 update now available for download
Posted by Daniel Spreadbury - 12 May 09:26AM
There is no option to determine whether or not Magnetic Layout should use the new, more precise routing around flats. In practice this makes a very small difference anyway, and only when the last note of a slur has a flat and the slur goes above. You don't need to do anything to update the settings.

If in doubt, and you're not married to a given score's particular settings, you can simply click Restore Defaults in Magnetic Layout Options to get the latest and greatest settings.

Thanks Daniel that's good to know. One last thing, are the default magnetic layout settings in Helsinki font the same as in the default music font, or are the newly updated Helsinki manuscripts slightly different in regards to magnetic layout?

Thanks again. I do like to have the 'latest and greatest' appearance settings up to date, as I've noticed sibelius always makes them ever more elegant, requiring less manual tweaking.

It's interesting that you are so worried about this, when the existing download doesn't seem to need serial numbers. I have downloaded the update on two different computers and haven't once been asked for any serial numbers. Comments here suggest this is true for some others too. So the existing system isn't exactly secure.

I didn't do anything special to download, just clicked on the link given.

Presumably the downloaded program gets your serial number and registration information from the existing installation, so I don't see the need for the check on the download.

But you *do* have a valid Sibelius serial number embedded in a cookie in the web browser on your work computer. I can tell that is the case, because you are posting here. And that's why you didn't have to quote a serial number again.

It's not that the serial number itself is embedded in the cookie, but the fact that you have a cookie from this forum means that we can look up your serial number based on that cookie, and if the serial number shows in our system as having been upgraded to Sibelius 6, then you're given access to the download.

OK, fair enough, Daniel. It's a pity you weren't able to find a faster server from the start.

Well, we were under the impression that our current server was fast enough, because it certainly is in theory, but that proved to be a misapprehension.

Hi Daniel

When I try to run the installer, I get an error message saying "the set up files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program."

Any ideas what that means?

Matt

It may mean your download stopped before the entire installer was downloaded.

My download was 528MB, 553,819,416 bytes. Make sure your downloaded install file is at least that big.

Wow... I'm having a LOT of issues with 6.2. It's completely unstable on our system here... crashes all the time for no apparent reason (it's completely random). We're using a Symphony 64 as an audio interface and It *seems* that it's not crashing when it's not selected as the playback device. Could the problem come from there?

It's really horrible right now. I have to save every 30 seconds because I never know when it's going to crash... on average I'd say I have to restart Sibelius ever 15 minutes.

I've tried reseting the preferences... but... same problem.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,
Jerome

I have been trying for a week to download v6.2 and was getting nowhere fast, until this morning (23rd) when the upgrade downloaded very quickly. I had almost given up! The Installer loaded well but my added plugins are no longer available to me, despite being in the plugins folder.

Sounds like you have been putting the plug-ins in the wrong place. Please see this page for information about the correct location to install plug-ins (hint: it's not inside the Sibelius 6 folder in Program Files):
