i've heard it's a very capable program, but i've also heard it said that finale (its direct competition for the exact same price tag) is if only a wee bit better - and i believe finale comes with the WHOLE garritan orchestra, whereas sibelius comes with the 'Garritan orchestra - sibelius package'. i'm not 100% sure on that one, so a good double-check would be in order.

 

i'm going to be getting one of the two right after the holiday season, but i'll be using it more to arrange horns and strings. anyway, get back to us as to what you decide, as it will help me greatly as well ...(and if you wait as long as january, i'll keep you informed, too)

Well for my music theory course we use Sibellius 4, so far I'm very pleased with it. Very easy to use and certainly one of the top programs out there. I've heard Finale is about the same, but I think you can't go wrong with either one, so just go with the $ if you're planning on buying a full version.
