​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.

Write on!

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