Default Finale/Sibelius Format Scores

Hi,

First, I'd just like to say how happy I am that this site exists, it's exactly what I was looking for!

I was wondering if it would be possible to offer the sheet music files in their original format (i.e. Finale or Sibelius, etc) so that users with those programs can do things like mute the solo part and play along with the accompaniment, or add in a metronome to keep tempo. It would also be useful if one wanted to transpose parts to accommodate other instruments (i.e. violin to viola, etc).

Thanks,
Ismail Degani

Dear Ismail Degani, thank you for your post and welcome on the forums. I am very glad to know you are enjoying Virtual Sheet Music.

Well, we cannot publish our sheet music in Finale or Sibelius file format due to copyright issues. By publishing them in those formats we would allow anybody to modify them and, possibly, republishing them easily by infringing our own copyrights. I hope you understand that.

Instead, to play along the music and mute single tracks, you can always download the MIDI files freely included with any piece.

Thank you for your kindness and understanding on this important matter.

Sincerely,

Hi mahmood and thank you for your message. Unfortunately I can't publish here that information, but I can assure you that when we started we didn't spend any money... or almost. You can start a site by paying a good webhosting company for only $5 a month and you can rise that money by publishing Google Ads or other ads on your website (just to start)... but this is without the purpose of this forum. You can always contact me by private messaging or e-mail.

Sincerely,
