What Users are Saying:
"Having access to all of my Sibelius files as well as being able to manipulate them on my iPad is simply fantastic. Who needs a laptop when Scorch's great sound set and playback capabilities have made my Sibelius library truly portable and useful on the go," said Doug LeBow, Producer, Composer, Arranger; Disney English
"I have found Scorch to be an excellent companion to Sibelius. With Scorch, I no longer have to worry about dragging out my laptop to view scores. I have even used Scorch while performing live with various ensembles. Who needs to drag out a pile of paper? I turn on my tablet and it's all there--no digging required," commented John Wales, Owner, Spotlight Music Inc.
"It is invaluable to me to be able to use Scorch to direct from the iPad in a club setting where there simply isn't enough space to have a conductor's music stand with 11x 17 scores. If a musician has a question about their part I can easily zoom into the Scorch file, find the specific passage and get them back on track in no time. Thank you Avid for making it possible to have my entire Sibelius score collection at my fingertips," said David O'Rourke, Jazz Guitarist, Arranger, Bandleader.
