Symphony Pro Notation For iPad

Symphony Pro is a complete music notation editor that allows you to quickly write and playback music wherever you and your iPad go.

Open up one of your saved compositions, or begin with a blank page, and you’re ready to start writing. You can import MusicXML, MIDI, ABC, MXL, Symphony files, and even some scanned music sheets downloaded from the web, opened from other apps such as Mail and Safari, or from the device via iTunes File Sharing.

Select a note length and then tap anywhere on the score to add a note. Use the 88-key virtual keyboard or a Core MIDI compatible keyboard to rapidly enter a series of notes or chords. You can use the recording tool to play in phrases in real-time.

Symphony Pro supports a wide range of notational elements, including dynamics, arpeggios, trills, mordents, accelerandos, glissandos, tuplets, tempo changes, time and key signature changes, alternate endings, double bar-lines, and repeats. You can create and edit chord symbols and lyrics easily using the iPad’s standard keyboard.

When you’re done composing, you can export your piece as a MusicXML, MIDI, PDF, MP3, AAC, or Symphony file to iTunes or email. You can also quickly save a screenshot of each page in your score to Photos.

In addition, you can use the new AirPrint feature to print your scores directly from the iPad, AirPlay to wirelessly stream audio to compatible devices, and AirShare to easily share or transfer multiple files at once across your local network.

New Features:

Copy and paste using rectangle
Expandable crescendos and diminuendos
User defined beam groups
User defined stems
Added non-pitched neutral clef
Reposition rests vertically
