NOTION Music has announced the new NOTION app for iPad. They say that this notation editor and playback app gives musicians the ability to compose, edit, and play back scores using top notch real audio samples performed by The London Symphony Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios. With the mobility of the iPad, NOTION allows users to capture musical ideas at any time and any place.
NOTION Music tells us that NOTION is suitable for all skill levels with its user-friendly interface and simple interactive piano keyboard. The app includes an abundance of advanced functions including an interactive 24-fret guitar fretboard, drum pad note entry, and a full-featured multi-track mixer with effects. Users can alter their score and playback using a palette full of articulations, expressions, and dynamics.
In addition to the notation editor, users can also hear their music performed with real audio samples, playing the most realistic playback possible. NOTION comes bundled with piano and orchestral samples recorded by The London Symphony Orchestra as well as popular instruments such as guitar, bass, and more. NOTION includes a full range of orchestral functions and articulations including staccato, flutter tongues, trills, and vibrato. Guitar functions and articulations consist of bends, vibrato, slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, mutes, whammy bar techniques, and more.
