Hear your Music Played by World-Class Musicians.

Compose, edit, and play back scores using real audio samples performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Notion gives you by far the best, most realistic playback of any notation product. Hear your music performed with real piano and orchestral samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, along with outstanding sampled guitar, bass, and other popular instruments

Interactive Tools and Advanced Functions Make Composing Fast and Intuitive.

With a user-friendly interface; a simple, interactive piano keyboard, guitar fretboard, and drum pad; and an abundance of advanced functions, Notion makes it easy to compose your music. And now you can write freehand too!

​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.

And with Notion’s abundance of advanced functions you can take your most basic ideas to an entirely new level right on your mobile device.
Begin by using the simple score setup tool—or use a template, open a Notion or Progression file, or import a MusicXML file. Continue to alter your score and playback using a palette full of articulations, expressions, and dynamics. Create the perfect balance using the multitrack mixer with distortion and reverb effects.

Once you are happy with your creation, share your work by simply sending a Notion, MIDI, or MusicXML file or by emailing a PDF file that can be viewed and printed.

Now with Optional Handwriting Recognition

Write On!

Using a finger or stylus, you can now write music in your own handwriting style and see it effortlessly convert to digital notation. And with an Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro, you can even write with pressure and thickness, which gives you a much more natural feeling and even greater accuracy. Handwriting recognition support is available separately via a new in-app purchase for iPad.

Now you can choose which note entry method suits you, and when: use the onscreen fretboard or a MIDI keyboard; select and touch notes onto the staff or draw in with your own handwriting. Better still, create your own custom combination of them all.

Notion’s handwriting recognition is powered by MyScript® who are the source of the world’s most advanced technology for handwriting recognition and digital ink management.
