How to get a perpetual license from a crossgrade

Post by Redshawn66 » Fri Jul 09, 2021 7:17 am

Does anyone know if its possible to crossgrade from Finale V26 to Sibelius Ultimate Perpetual license. After numerous emails to Avid sales, there's just no response on this topic.

The Avid website does navigate to a perpetual license page, and also its FAQ section does tell of such a purchase, but its hyperlinks no longer work, and the sales page is ambiguous as to if its Sibelius, or Sibelius Ultimate one is purchasing.

Some online retailers seem to suggest its possible, one offers this 'Avid Sibelius Ultimate Cross-G Perpetual', but I'm unsure if its genuine.

I've just done a quick check on the "Competitive Crossgrade" and it is 'On Hold' at the moment. Probably because there is an imminent release of a new version of Sibelius due.
