Converting Notation into PDF (.mus, .sib to .pdf)

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone with Sibelius chops can chime in on exactly what to do to accomplish this in Sibby. This post/thread will replace the unfortunately outdated one currently pinned.

Here it is:

1- HOW TO CREATE A PDF SCORE FROM FINALE and

2- HOW TO CREATE AN MP3 RENDERING OF YOUR .MUS FILE.

How to create a PDF score.

Step 1)

Go to one of these sites and download a free pdf creating software.

CutePDF - Create PDF for free, Free PDF Utilities, Save PDF Forms, Edit PDF easily.

Free PDF Creator - Convert to PDF from Any File You Can Print - PrimoPDF

PDF Split and Merge

I recommend PrimoPDF.

Step 2)

Open your .mus file and select "print." Click the "setup" button and from the list of printers and select "PrimoPDF" as your printer.

Step 3)

Click "Print"

Step 4)

Tell the dialog box which appears to create a pdf.

Finale Step)

Choose a location to save to and name your document.

How to create an mp3 rendering of your .mus file

Step 1)

Download a free wav to mp3 converter if you have no other software for it.

Step 2)

Open your finale/.mus file and select under the File dropdown menu "export to audio file"

Step 3)

Choose a location and name for your file and click "save"

Final Step)

Open your new WAV to mp3 converter, find your file and designate a target name for your to-be mp3. Be sure to select a higher bit-rate

Done. You now have a pdf and mp3 of your Finale document!
