Notion VS Symphony Pro 4

Hi there,

I'm a composer looking to branch out into iPad composition for my long train ride to my school. I am hoping to invest in either Notion or SP4 but have heard mixed things about both.

What are your takes?

I love the Symphony Pro people—and am pleased they are making the software. That said, you aren’t going to find another mobile application with the power of Notion; plus there is a benefit that anything you do on Notion for Win/Mac transfers to the iPad. This means that you can actually add some things to a score that you can’t actually do on the iPad.

Add to this Notions wonderful sounds, and affordable sounds on iPad, and there isn’t really any comparison. I do legitimate work on Notion for iOS—I can’t do that work on Symphony Pro.

I would say that Notion is expensive compared to other programs I have used (LilyPond is open source), but it is probably the best notation software for iOS. By the way, Symphony Pro 5 has been released.
