Contact Sibelius Technical Support

Our highly trained support team will help you find solutions to all your technical issues.

Registering Sibelius

Before Sibelius has been registered, you will be prompted to register each time you start Sibelius. You can also register at any time after starting Sibelius by choosing Help > Register Sibelius (Sibelius 3 or later) or File > Register/Transfer > Register Sibelius (Sibelius 2 or earlier).

Users of Sibelius 3 or later

If you are running Sibelius 3 or later, you should register online if possible: from the choice of two radio buttons in the Register Sibelius dialog, choose Using the Internet connection on this computer (Sibelius 6) or On the Internet (Sibelius 5 or earlier) and click Next. Do this even if you are re-registering your copy, or you are installing and registering Sibelius on a new computer.

If you cannot register online, choose Using a web browser on this or another computer (Sibelius 6) or By fax, phone or email (Sibelius 5 or earlier) and click Next. Then go to www.sibelius.com/register and follow the instructions online.

Users of Sibelius 2 or earlier

Other Support Options

Purchasing further assisted support

Once your 90 days of complimentary support has expired, you can choose to purchase additional support, either on a per-incident basis, or by extending your support entitlement with an annual support contract, giving you access to assisted support for a whole year.

If you are from an educational institution and would prefer to purchase a support contract via purchase order, please contact an authorized reseller. Yearly support contracts for institutions also come with an additional 10% discount on any upgrades bought while the support contract is active.

The yearly support contracts are in the form of a single Avid Support Code that expires 365 days from the date of purchase. The ASC is used in the same way as your complimentary 90 day ASC, by submitting a case online or by telephone. See above for numbers and details of how to contact support.

Please visit the Avid web store to purchase an ASC. For more information about Avid Support Codes, please see here.
