PRESONUS NOTION Notation Software

Plays well with others.

In addition to working well with VST instruments and transferring to and from your iOS device, Notion offers support for standard file formats—and ReWire. 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. Or export audio from Notion as a PreSonus Capture Session that will open directly in Studio One and retain instrument name, score order, pan and gain settings, rehearsal marks, initial time signature, and metronome marks.Want to share audio files online? Simply upload them to SoundCloud™ from within Notion!

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. 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. Notion combines the power of the MIDI sequencer with the clarity of standard notation in a unique and powerful way.

Here’s more good news: Notion 5 can run with 64-bit or 32-bit addressing on Mac and Windows. It works great with Windows touchscreens and Mac Retina displays, too.

Don’t just play your music: perform and produce it, too.

Notion lets you play back a score with playback following metronome marks but you also can perform your scores live, continuously controlling tempo and velocity. Jump in and out of repeats, vamp measures, fade in and out, and navigate live from your computer keyboard or a MIDI controller. Performing your scores has many uses but it’s especially great for music students and educators.

Notion even offers features you expect in a digital audio workstation. Import audio files and mix them with your score using the built-in software mixer. Process your audio with the built-in reverb, guitar-amp simulator, and Native Effects EQ, compressor, and limiter plug-ins from PreSonus’ Studio One DAW. Yes, Notion is a professional notation program but it's clearly much more!
