Welcome to the Sibelius feedback community


Important Notice!

At Avid, we understand the value and importance of capturing ideas and feedback from our community and strive to collaborate on innovative solutions and capabilities for future releases. In doing so, Avid has been reviewing the platforms used to collect feedback with the goal of optimizing the process for everyone.

As a result of this review, we have decided to retire sibelius.ideascale.com effective September 27, 2018. In preparation for this transition, we encourage you to start using the Avid Customer Association or the Avid Link beta app for submitting feedback around product innovations. As part of this transition, we plan to import many of the most popular existing feature requests from IdeaScale at the end of this year.

We look forward to having you continue to share your insight and ideas in 2019 and beyond.

Sincerely,
The Avid Team
