Your Scores Played by Industry Heavy Hitters

How would you like to hear your latest opus performed by none other than the London Symphony Orchestra? Or witness your song ideas spring to life with performances by Victor Wooten and Neil Zaza? It's only possible with PreSonus Notion 6 software. No other notation software can touch Notion 6's playback quality, allowing you to focus on capturing a moment rather than getting your mic placement right. Notion 6 makes it easy to share ideas with your bandmates in the form of tablature, or share scores with your producer or director in the form of sheet music. Video playback supports film scoring. And iPad transfer and handwriting recognition allow you to finish compositions on the go (iOS app sold separately). Finally, integration with PreSonus Studio One software lets you flesh out arrangements using your own virtual instruments and FX.

Notion 6 is powerful, yet easy to use

Notion 6's user interface is easy to use - and Sweetwater knows how important this is to the creative process. Its sleek design and intuitive workflow let you focus on your music. That approach extends to the SequencerStaff feature; when you input music using a MIDI device, Notion 6 retains all the MIDI data like a sequencer, including modulations, bends, and dynamics. You can keep the SequencerStaff view or convert to traditional notation instantly.

Lifelike onboard instruments bring your compositions to life

Notion 6 comes with some astounding sounds built right in. It includes symphonic samples by the London Symphony Orchestra recorded at Abbey Road Studios. It also has guitar samples by Neil Zaza and killer bass and drum samples from Victor Wooten and his brother, Roy "Futureman" Wooten. You also get a glorious Steinway piano and other popular instruments - all with a wide array of dynamics, expertly recorded by top engineers using the finest gear.

ReWire integration makes Notion 6 perfect for studio use

Notion 6's ReWire integration supports both host and slave options. Built to be compatible with digital audio workstations, Notion 6 works effortlessly with third-party VSTi libraries and VST effects, has full MIDI functionality, and can save as or import audio files.

Great notation and playback program

Notion 6 (last version) is without any doubt one of the best software for basic and some advance music writing. Notion won’t create for you but, it will entice and motivate you to explore, experiment. arrange and create amazing demos of whatever you notate. If you don’t read/write music notation this is not for you. If you want to learn or you are already knowledgeable (composer, music student) in music notation, Notion 6 is for you. It does have a lot of features and the ability to use orchestra sound (VST). I have done 2 full albums for orchestra and chamber orchestra with Notion 6, working with dynamics, tenutos, ritardandos and more, and mastering the final music files with a DAW software. The result, music that is a pleasure to listen. Notion 6 is my number one tool as a musician and it gets 5 stars! Carlos Enrique – M. Mus & Performance - Composer/Classical Guitarist, Nashville TN.

Really Useful

My sight reading and notation skills need improvement. This is a really useful tool for both issues. The interface is pretty intuitive if you have a basic understanding of written music. The audio engine is perhaps not the highest quality, but extremely helpful to test what you've written, because if your notation is off, the playback reflects that. I would say it is excellent value for the money and it really does integrate with Studio One flawlessly.

Very bad software

This program has a lot more to be fix. It doesn't work well on PC. I have installed it 4 times and every time it's the same . Firts, it doesn't recognize automatically the files where the vst are installed. Once you you find the way around and star your project and want to save, the program halts. In addition when it halts always catches my computer. It's really badddd.
