Recordare LLC, an Internet music software and publishing company, has released version 3 of its Dolet plug-in for the Sibelius 4 music notation program. Dolet 3 for Sibelius writes MusicXML 1.1 files for the highest-fidelity translation available between music notation programs. Dolet 3 also includes a batch translation feature to automate the process of moving music notation files from one program to another. Dolet 3 supports Sibelius 4.0 and 4.1 on Windows and Macintosh.

Recordare's Dolet plug-ins serve as "universal translators" between music notation programs. While Sibelius 4 can read MusicXML 1.1 files, Dolet 3 for Sibelius adds the ability to save MusicXML 1.1 files. The combined products allow two-way sharing of files between Sibelius, Finale, and other programs at a level that has never before been possible.

Music preparation professionals who need to use multiple music notation programs have enthusiastically embraced the Dolet 3 and MusicXML 1.1 product families. The MusicXML format works with 50 different programs running on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems, including:

  • Notation programs such as Finale 2006 and Sibelius 4
  • Scanning programs such as SharpEye Music Reader and PhotoScore Professional
  • The musicRAIN interactive sheet music player for web browsers
  • The MuseBook and OrganMuse electronic music stands for piano and organ
  • Sequencers
  • Algorithmic composition programs
  • Programs to create play-along CDs
  • Tablature editors

This combined support makes MusicXML far and away the most widely adopted music notation format since MIDI.

Dolet 3 for Sibelius is available for US $129.95 direct from Recordare.

Upgrades from Dolet 1 for Sibelius are available for US $79.95. Dolet 1 continues to be offered for customers needing to save MusicXML 1.0 files from Sibelius 2.1 or 3.1.
