Fast and agile notation tool from PreSonus.

Notion 5 is the latest iteration of PreSonus notation software, and it is faster and more elegant than ever. In the vast jungle of notation suites, Notion 5 distinguishes itself in a number of ways. Perhaps relevant to you, it is the only notation suite that works with a standalone iPad app. But much more than that, its design philosophy and execution align with the real world needs of most musicians who need a notation program in a way that many of the stodgy, traditional notation suites do not.
PreSonus Notion is famed for outstanding playback sounds, speedy workflow, compatibility, and ease of use. It offers powerful features for scoring to picture. And it costs a fraction of what many of the slow, bloated, overcomplicated scoring programs cost. Thats why Notion 5 is a favorite notation software among composers, performers, producers, worship teams, arrangers, orchestrators, educators, and music students.

Hear Your Music Played by World-Class Musicians
Notion gives you killer playback of any notation you score. The orchestral samples were recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. Guitar samples were performed by Neil Zaza, bass samples by Victor Wooten, and drum samples by Roy œFutureman Wooten. Theres a wonderful Steinway piano, too. All were 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
Enter notes with ease using Notion 5s interactive fretboard, keyboard, and drum pad. Choose chords from a generous chord library (enhanced in version 5), and create your own chords.

Truly Cross Platform
Create a score in Notion for Mac or Windows”then continue to work on it in Notion for iPad. Or start with the iPad and transfer to your Mac or Windows computer for in-depth editing. No other notation software can do this.

Plays Well with Others
In addition to working well with VST instruments and transferring to and from iPad, Notion offers support for standard file formats”and ReWire.

Capture MIDI Parts and Edit Them with Your Score
Recording and editing MIDI data is easy in Notion. Viewing MIDI and standard notation together makes the experience special.

Every Bit Helps.
Notion 5 can run with 64-bit or 32-bit addressing on Mac and Windows. It works great with Windows 8 touchscreens and Mac Retina displays, too.
