Notion Mobile 3.1 Now Available

22/03/2023

Notion Mobile v3 took mobile music creation to the next level with support for iOS, Android, Windows and macOS. Now v3.1 adds over 100 enhancements and fixes, leading with its innovative new lasso selection that intelligently swaps between handwriting and selection mode before selecting all objects within the drawn area.

Notion Mobile is free, and all add-ons are included in a PreSonus Sphere membership or available through the Feature Bundle in-app purchase. Download from your preferred App Store now

Top 5 New Features

All Changes in 3.1

Top 5 New Features 1. Lasso select One of the most requested features for Notion is now here the ability to freely draw around objects thereby selecting them. Once the handwriting recognition is engaged (available via the Feature Bundle in-app purchase) a user can select a number of different types of object in one go from notes and articulations to dynamics and slurs. Notion will also intelligently switch between handwriting notes and creating a lasso selection this means a user can remain in a single mode.

2. Chord improvements It is now even easier to create leadsheets with improvements to chord entry for 3.1.

Add multiple chords to empty measures Now there's no need to attach chords to hidden rests/notes to add more than one chord per empty measure. Notion will now attach chords to the nearest rhythmic position over an empty measure.

More chord extensions available Additional common chord types are now available to combine in the chord picker

Chord placement improvement Chords will now automatically go beneath repeat brackets

More chord diagrams Further diagrams have been added for common chords for guitar and ukulele

3. Demo Files A long requested feature for Notion on mobile devices ten new demo scores help new users see and hear what's possible with Notion Mobile. Choose from Tchaikovsky to modern rock download Notion's soundsets first to listen. Go to: Create new score>Demo Scores.

Acoustic Guitar The Root

Bach Brandenburg Concerto No.4 Allegro

Chopin Raindrop Prelude

Dad Rock

Jazz Trio Meet me after 5

MF Blues

Mozart Clarinet Concerto Adagio

Saint-Sa ns Septuor, Gavotte et Final

Tchaikovsky Nutcracker Overture

Tchaikovsky Romeo And Juliet

4. Note entry playback improvements Playback of selected staff Notion is now able to play just the selected staves make a selection of one or more instrument staves and hit play. The selection will automatically be solo-ed.

Get feedback on your orchestration fast just select a chord for example across the instruments you've scored it for, and hit play. No need to dive into the mixer to manually solo/mute.

Automatically add new measures to end during step-time or real-time record

Notion will now add extra measures to the end of your score if you continue adding notes in either real-time or step-time record. In real-time, the metronome will continue and once you have stopped, Notion will analyse your performance and add the bars. In step-time, bars will be added as you go.

Note entry preview dynamics set at mf When entering notes, Notion sounds a preview of the pitch to be entered this is now set at a consistent dynamic making it easier to hear and compare when entering notes for different instruments

5. Part handling improvements From improvements to multi-measure rests to quickly toggling between score and part views, Notion 3.1 has a number of features to ease the preparation of parts for your players.

Toggle between score/part If you want to quickly check the part layout of an instrument, select the instrument in the full score, then just hit F5 with an attached keyboard. Press F5 again to return to the full score. If you don't have a keyboard attached, then go to Score Setup and tap the part/full score toggle button

Show / hide instrument key signature A long standing request for Notion! Now you can hide key signatures for selected instruments nowadays most commonly required for French horns, but also in older scores for trumpets too. Horns generally do not have a key signature, rather, their parts show accidentals for each note.

Part title improvements Now part titles are populated automatically from the full score, if they are initially set. You can still have different titles between score and part if you wish it's just they are now set by default.

Part names (in the top left hand corner of a part) also now show the instrument key by default, e.g. Clarinet in A making it easier for players to see the key of their part at a glance
