PreSonus Notion is famed for outstanding playback sounds, speedy workflow, compatibility, and ease of use, and it's the only notation software that works with a standalone iPad app. It offers powerful features for scoring to picture. And it costs a fraction of what those slow, bloated, overcomplicated scoring programs soak you for. That’s why Notion 5 is the best notation software for composers, performers, producers, worship teams, arrangers, orchestrators, educators, and music students.

Hear Your Music Played by World-Class Musicians.

Notion gives you by far the best playback of any notation product, including orchestral samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra. But that’s just the beginning of its playback features.

Interactive Tools Make Entry Fast and Intuitive.

Enter notes with ease using Notion 5’s interactive fretboard, keyboard, and drum pad. Choose chords from a generous chord library (enhanced in version 5), and create your own chords.

Truly Cross Platform.

Create a score in Notion for Mac or Windows—then continue to work on it in Notion for iPad. Or start with the iPad and transfer to your Mac or Windows computer for in-depth editing. No other notation software can do this.

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.

Every Bit Helps.

Here’s a bit of good news: Notion 5 can run with 64-bit or 32-bit addressing on Mac and Windows. It works great with Windows 8 touchscreens and Mac Retina displays, too.

Don’t Just Play Your Music: Perform and Produce it, Too.
