Converting from .sib to .xml

Hello all,

So, long story short I lost everything but backups to scores and my copy of Dorico. I don’t have Sibleius anymore and want to open .sib files in Dorico, but can’t convert them to .xml without Sibelius. Is there any solution?

a Sibelius trial ?

If you know (and trust!) someone with Sibelius, you could send them all your Sibelius files and ask them to convert for you. There’s a Sibelius plug-in called “Convert Folder of Scores to Musicxml” that makes the conversion process pretty quick.

No reason I know of why that won’t work.

Sibelius also has a subscription model where you can rent it for awhile.

you could always go to your Avid account and download Sibelius from there.
