Thread Name: Tech: Sibelius vs Finale
Subject: RE: Tech: Sibelius vs Finale
Okay, Nigel. You're the composer, but you haven't dealt with this publisher for 20-30 years. Did the publisher or printer say that you have to buy Finale or Sibelius? Or is this Music Acquisition Syndrome?

(By 'printer' I don't mean a white plastic thing which sits on a table, I mean a corporation which prints things using printing presses.)

How big an income do you expect to result from this work? I understand that Sibelius and Finale cost hundreds of dollars. Will the profit cover that, plus more for taxes, plus something for you?

It could be that you could do your composing in Logic and the printer will simply import your work into a fancier program and then do the actual printing.

Remember, a penny saved is noticeably more than a penny earned.
