Notion app for iPad uses London Symphony Orchestra samples

updated 09:40 pm EST, Mon December 19, 2011

Composers can capture, hear musical ideas

A new notation editor and playback app, Notion for iPad, offers the ability to write down musical ideas and hear them performed using samples performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. The app also features the LSO performing piano samples, together with other instruments and a track mixer. Scores can be customized using a full range of expressions, dynamics and articulations. For a limited time, the debut is being celebrated with a sale price.

Notion is accessible by all skill levels using a simple piano keyboard or guitar fretboard. Other instrument samples are included, such as guitar, bass, drums and others. Guitar functions include bends, vibrato, whammy bar, mutes, pull-offs, slides and hammer-ons among others. Orchestral functions include staccato, flutter tongues, trills and vibrato. The London Symphony Orchestra samples were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.

Users can e-mail their scores as Notion files, or as PDF transcriptions, MusicXML or MIDI files. The app, available at the iTunes Store, also lets users search for tabs and MusicXML files online, and is also compatible with Guitar Pro files. For the first few days of release, the app will cost $1 rather than its normal $15 price.
