Recordare's Dolet plug-ins serve as "universal translators" between music notation applications. The Dolet 5 for Sibelius plug-in saves MusicXML 2.0 files from Sibelius. This lets Sibelius users share files with people using other music programs with the highest possible accuracy. Dolet 5 for Sibelius supports the new plug-in and notation features added in Sibelius 6. New features saved from Sibelius 6 include transpositions, octave-transposing clefs, hidden staves on systems, system and page breaks, color, jazz articulations, comments, feathered beams, and enhanced chord symbols. Dolet 5 for Sibelius includes more than 30 improvements to the MusicXML exported from both Sibelius 5 and 6. It also runs about 20% faster than Dolet 4 for Sibelius. Current Dolet 4 for Sibelius customers have praised the improvements in the new version. "The MusicXML files output from Dolet 5 for Sibelius and opened in Finale are stunning," said John Hinchey, owner of Hinchey Music Services in Nashville. "They are nearly perfect in their complete transfer of all relevant information. Often I'm in the position of coordinating the arranging and music prep on large projects. MusicXML has not only saved me hours of 'grunt work' but has literally made the difference in making the deadline - more than once." "If you work professionally with music notation software, the Dolet MusicXML plug-in for Sibelius is a must-have," said Robert Puff of RPM Seattle Music Preparation. "Dolet 5 fully supports Sibelius 6, and features dozens of new improvements with faster, more automated conversions. This impressive utility just keeps getting better."
