PreSonus has announced that the latest update to Notion for iOS introduces an in-app purchase that adds finger/stylus handwriting recognition.
Using a finger or stylus, you can write music in your own handwriting and see it automatically converted to digital notation. 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.
Notion’s handwriting recognition is powered by MyScript, technology for handwriting recognition and digital ink management.
“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.”
Notion for iOS is available in the Apple App Store for US $14.99.
