Feature-rich music notation software with incredible sound and more.
PreSonus Notion is famed for outstanding playback sounds, speedy workflow, compatibility, and ease of use, and it's the only notation software that works with a standalone iPad app. It offers powerful features for scoring to picture. And it costs a fraction of those slow, bloated, overcomplicated scoring programs. Notion 5 is a great notation software for composers, performers, producers, worship teams, arrangers, orchestrators, educators, and music students.
Hear Your Music Played by World-Class Musicians
Notion has many strengths but it's best known for superb playback. The orchestral samples were recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Guitar samples were performed by Neil Zaza, bass samples by Victor Wooten, and drum samples by Roy "Futureman" Wooten. There's a wonderful Steinway piano, too. All were painstakingly recorded by top engineers using the best equipment. You get a wide array of dynamics, articulations, and performance techniques.
Interactive Tools Make Entry Fast and Intuitive
For many musicians, Notion's interactive keyboard, fretboard, and drum pad are the fastest and most convenient way to capture pitches, drum parts, and guitar fingerings. You can even customize the number of guitar strings on the fretboard and the order of entry for each voice for the drum pad.
The chord library makes it simple to enter the chord name or voicing you want to appear in your score. Choose from standard chord symbols and fretted chord symbols and design custom chord symbols and diagrams. You can work even faster in Notion 5 than in previous versions; chords now remain on the fretboard for repeated entry, and version 5 adds the ability to recall recently used chords. Chord symbols can vertically align on the page, too.
Truly Cross Platform
Only Notion allows you to create a score in standard notation on your desktop and transfer it to your iPad, where you can continue to edit and play back your music. With Notion and Notion for iPad (a separate purchase), you can create, send, and open scores between Mac, Windows, and iOS devices and continue to work on your score, anywhere, anytime! No matter which platform you use, you get the high-quality playback sounds for which Notion is famous.
Film, video, and TV composers have specialized needs that just start with a synchronized video window. Notion's video window includes a new timecode view, and you can add hitpoints and select the volume, frame rate, and start time. That's all important stuff but not uncommon.
However, other scoring software falls short when it comes to supporting modern video file formats. In contrast, Notion can handle all of the most important formats, including mp4, WMV (Windows only), H.264, mpeg, mov, avi, m4v, and 3gp on Mac and Windows.
Plays Well with Others
Notion 5 offers compatibility with other applications in several ways. It can import and export Wave files, including upsampling for export, and can export the audio for each staff or bus as an individual stem and import it into PreSonus' popular Studio One DAW. Want to share audio files online? Simply upload them to SoundCloud from within Notion!
Capture MIDI Parts and Edit Them with Your Score
Capture your MIDI performances better than ever before in Notion. Choose keyboard, guitar, or drum entry and dial in exactly how Notion will follow your playing. Enter in real time or in step time. Then view your MIDI performance data in Notion's Sequencer Staff.
Better yet, use the Sequencer Overlay, which allows you to see notation and MIDI performance data on the same staff. Edit each individual note's velocity, duration, start point, and end point using drag-and-drop. For precise values, double-click each note and enter in the numeric values as well. With this feature, Notion combines the power of the MIDI sequencer with the clarity of standard notation in a unique and powerful way.
