How to print my digital sheet music ?

What's a digital sheet music ?

  • More than a PDF, digital sheet music allow you to read, play, transpose music, change the tempo and of course print.
  • Digital sheet music cannot be 'downloaded'. You print them straight from your account with Sibelius Cloud Publishing (html5) or Sibelius Scorch (plug-in). You will not be able to keep them as a PDF or any other computer file.
  • Sibelius Cloud Publishing has been developped in html5 and is hence compatible with all recent browsers and on all platforms natively (since 2014). The Sibelius Scorch plug-in tends to become obsolete, hence we strongly advise you to favor the use of the html5 solution, then fallback on the plug-in shall you really have the need to.

The musical world evolves : free scores to download or digital sheet music to print at home, find the guitar tablature, piano score (or any other instrument) you need ! Transpose, listen, print and play...

Scorch's installation

Windows (Internet Explorer)

Last Updated: Aug 21, 2013
Internet Explorer will automatically display a prompt to install Scorch underneath the browser address bar or at the bottom of the browser window :

ie install

Click 'Install' on this message to start the install. If you havent seen the prompt, just refresh this page (press F5 key). Once the install has completed, please close and re-open Internet Explorer. In certain cases, you may have to restart your computer.

If youre having problems getting Scorch prompt to appear, please install the plug-in manually by downloading and running this file.

In some cases when you have Scorch already installed and you are trying to view sheet music in Scorch format on our website, Internet Explorer would prevent the sheet music from showing and will show this information bar :

ie allow

If this happens, just click 'Allow' button on the information bar and the sheet music should appear.
