The latest update to PreSonus Notion for iOS takes mobile music creation to the next level with a new in-app purchase that adds handwriting recognition for iPad users. Using a finger or stylus, you can write music in your own handwriting and see it effortlessly convert to digital notation. And with an Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro, you can even write with pressure and thickness, which gives you a much more natural feeling and even greater accuracy.

With Notion for iOS, you have your choice of easy-to-use note-entry methods. Use the onscreen fretboard, a MIDI keyboard, selecting and touching notes onto the staff, and now entry with your own handwriting—or any combination.

“Composing music with handwriting can be an important part of the creative process,” observes Arnd Kaiser, general manager of PreSonus Software Ltd. “We selected MyScript technology because it enables our users to compose music naturally while leveraging the convenience and powerful capabilities of our composition software. It is the best of both worlds for today’s musician.”

MyScript powers Notion’s handwriting recognition. Notion for iOS is available on the Apple App Store and was recently featured as one of Apple’s “Amazing Apps for iPad Pro.”
