Music Software : Notation Giants Battle Over Mac Users - macmusicRival notation software developers MakeMusic (formerly Coda, makers of Finale) and Sibelius are at again. Finale 2004 for Mac, originally scheduled for October, before that scheduled for summer, has pushed its ship date -- and long-awaited OS X compatibility -- back to December 15, as we've reported here. Sibelius has responded by trying to woo OS X customers to a competitive upgrade. (Banner: You've waited long enough.) Sibelius has been on OS X for quite some time, while Finale users continue to be stuck with Classic mode. Sibelius claims 20,000 users have switched to Finale "and haven't looked back."

The folks at MakeMusic apparently took notice of Sibelius' web campaign, as they've responded with "Our Commitment to Mac Users". Most interesting in this: the bugs of the Finale 2004 Windows release should be fixed on Finale for Mac thanks to the delayed release. (Sibelius 2.1 and 1.1, both of which shipped later on the Mac than the PC, had similar benefits for Mac users' patience, in contrast to buggy PC releases.) It's unclear why MakeMusic is pushing "Core MIDI" support which is present in virtually every Mac music app. Also, Finale users apparently took "plug-in support" to mean support for audio plug-ins -- it's not; they're referring to Finale plug-ins. Neither program supports much audio interoperability, though the new Sibelius does ship with a soft synth from Native Instruments.
