How to transfer your Finale / Sibelius scores to NOTION3

Postby astinov » Tue May 25, 2010 9:41 am

There are two methods for transferring Finale or Sibelius files to NOTION3 – via MIDI and via MusicXML.

The preferred method is to always use MusicXML, since MIDI files do not contain score articulations and score markings information.

Using MusicXML:

Finale - MusicXML:
1. In Finale, open your file and go to File-MusicXML-Export and export your score
2. Start NOTION and click Import on the launch screen or go to File-Import and select the .xml file you just exported from Finale

Sibelius – MusicXML (note Sibelius does not come with XML export. You need Recordare’s Dolet plug-in to export MusicXML files from Sibelius):

1. In Sibelius, open the file and go to the Plugins menu. Find the MusicXML plug-in and choose Export MusicXML. Save the file to a location of your choice
2. Start NOTION and click Import on the launch screen or go to File-Import and select the .xml file you just exported from Sibelius

Using MIDI Export:

1. In Sibelius or Finale, export your score to a MIDI file using the File Export feature.
2. Start NOTION and choose Import at the launch screen or go to File-Import
3. Choose the MIDI file you just exported and click OK
4. Your MIDI file imports in Sequencer Staffs by default. To convert it to notation, go to Edit-Select All and then go to Tools – Convert to Notation

as of Version 7, Sibelius has native export of MusicXML. Works very very well with notion btw.

If you have Sibelius 6 or earlier, 'Recordare Dolet' XML translator is now a free plug-in for Sibelius!

Go to: http://www.musicxml.com/

Now, I can get my old scores into Norton 4 without having to upgrade Sibelius or buy something else! Yay!
