Notion bridges the gap between notation and an audio application. So now, not only can you compose and hear your notated score played back instantly with real instrument samples, you can actually perform live or produce music that sounds amazing.

Traditional Notation or Tablature – Fast and Easy:

  • Easily compose, play back, and edit music.
  • Perform scores using Notion as a live instrument and save your performance.
  • Create a score on a Mac, Windows computer or tablet, and continue to edit on iPad or iPhone and vice versa.
  • Interactive Entry Tools: Keyboard, Fretboard, Drum Pad, Chord Library (including custom chords).
  • Cross-platform handwriting recognition, powered by MyScript for written entry.
  • Sequencer overlay to see notation and MIDI data on the same staff.
  • Windows touchscreen support... just use your finger or stylus and tap.
  • Work with Notion in your native language with options for Sim. Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.

Create and Perform with Unmatched Sound Quality:

  • Best playback of any notation product, with samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra, Roy and Victor Wooten, Neil Zaza, Soundiron, and others.
  • Full guitar and bass articulations in playback.
  • Custom rules editor for instrument specific articulations.
  • Increase your sonic palette with additional expansion sounds from PreSonus or your favorite VST Instruments and libraries.
  • Process audio with included PreSonus Native Effects Limiter, Compressor, and Pro EQ plug-ins or other VST plug-ins.
  • Mix with a DAW-style console with up to 8 individual buses.

I love this software when comparing with sibelius and finale.The price is low. Easy to compose and there are some hidden features.Those who can't spend more money .This one too good for their needs.As a composer and music teacher .i am enjoying working with notion 6 Software.Only thing need frequent updates. Worth to buy.
