What's new in Notion 5

PreSonus Notion 5 includes exciting upgrades across-the-board, making it even faster and easier to use than previous versions. Notation has been juiced with an enharmonic spelling tool, cross-staff notation, layout and printing improvements, and cool shortcut sets. There's also an enhanced chord library with more library chords, user-created chords, and recent-chord recall. Add to that a new video window, new effects from PreSonus Studio One, and a custom rules editor, and the already value-packed Notion becomes a total no-brainer.

  • The ability to bounce all stems

Powerful, yet easy to use

Notion 5's user interface is incredibly easy to use. (Sweetwater knows how important this is to your creative process.) Its sleek screen design and intuitive workflow let you focus on your music. That approach extends to the amazing SequencerStaff feature; when you input your music with a MIDI device, Notion 5 retains all the MIDI data, including modulations, bends and dynamics like a sequencer. But, it shows the display on a traditional notation staff. You can keep the SequencerStaff view or convert to notation instantly.

Incredible onboard instruments

Notion 5 comes with absolutely astounding sounds! It includes symphonic samples by the London Symphony Orchestra (recorded at Abbey Road Studios, no less) and incredible guitar samples by Neil Zaza, as well as killer bass and drum samples by Victor Wooten, and his brother, Roy "Futureman" Wooten, respectively. You also get a glorious Steinway piano and other popular instruments - all with a wide array of dynamics, articulations, and performance techniques, expertly recorded by top engineers using the finest gear.
