Bought Notion 6 earlier today and been with a couple of hours.
I also have StudioOne 4.1.1.

I've found settings for split point - for record and import of midi.

But cannot get this into grand piano double staves?

I started with transfer from StudioOne, but same result. So went into separate midi to see if import setting works.

So simply want to select all bars of double staves grand piano and make a split point so left hand become lower stave.

I tried changing transpose thingy up or down octaves - but only become more or less extra support lines - never flows over to lower stave.

And bar 25 and some further down get strange in Notion but plays and look perfect in StudioOne 4.1.1 as well as other daws. This bar become 6 whole notes, both as played and visually - and nowhere close what is there.

So this is all translate problem in Notion.

I try to upload a mid-file and we see how it goes.

There is some useful information in this topic that should provide some help . . . :)

How to convert a single clef to a grand clef (when importing a midi track for example) ~ PreSonus NOTION Forum

Lots of FUN! :)

Thanks a lot.

I liked the comment
"6) Then I had an epiphany, which is the way it works here in the sound isolation studio . . . "

You're a funny guy. :D

I consider Notion education money, nothing you can really use for anything.

I did the same in Sonar 8.5 from 2010, and it was a breeze to get two staves and the notes splitted properly. Just open Layout dialog in Staff view, select treble+bass, and split note C5 and done.

and nothing funny how it interprets the midi file either. And having key signature to D-major in Sonar track - you get the two sharp accidentals in place as well.

For reference I did in Finale Guitar 2003 - and it also interprets correctly. I thought for a bit something was strange about the midi file since Notion made crap out of certain bars in there all through.

I focus on StudioOne which is incredible.

I assume as Steinberg just released Dorico, after having excellent notation already in Cubase/Nuendo - there is a market for it.

Hope Notion get the makeover it deserves.
Best regards

Yes, it's difficult or impossible to move notes between clefs of Grand Staff after the fact in Notion. You either need to import MIDI into a Grand Staff already established, and choose the split point correctly at that time, or... (I primarily use Cakewalk, so have not verified this) if the track is assigned to a piano VSTi in Studio One, my understanding is that the export to Notion will automatically put it in a Grand Staff. And I presume you get to choose a split point in that case as well.

But you're kind of SOL if the desired split point moves later in the piece.

P.S. I opened the MIDI clip in Cakewalk. It had a tempo of 100bpm, but feels more like 50bpm, and will probably notate better at that tempo. The timing of the pickup measure is a little wonky. If I listen to it in isolation, it wants to be a measure of 5/8 at 50bpm or 5/4 at 100bpm, but needs to be quantized a bit.
