Upgrading from version 4

All users with an active Cloud subscription will get version 5 at no additional cost. Go PlayAlong 4 Desktop license owners will be able to purchase version 5 at a reduced price. In addition to this, if you purchase version 4 close to the release date, you will be able to upgrade to version 5 by paying the price difference only (if there's any difference). This grace period will be 180 days long.

Beta testing

You can already start to explore the new score renderer engine for version 5 from within the Desktop player. Launch Go PlayAlong 4 and then select Preferences / Notation / Version 5 renderer engine (Beta).

An active Cloud subscription is needed to switch to the new renderer engine. Don’t have a Cloud subscription and you still want to take part in testing? Send an email to and you will be rewarded with 90 days of Cloud access for your efforts.
