composing application for ipad

Post by ceddia » Wed Feb 22, 2012 12:59 pm

Does anyone use the ipad to compose music and if so which applications do you use.
I like a program that I can write the notes but also at the same time can hear them back after I wrote it.

Thanks for your suggestions.
:D :D

The only notation program I've come across for iPad that looks any good is Notion!
Eric from GuitarLoot
Renaissance and Baroque freak; classical guitars by Lester Backshall (2008), Ramirez (Guitarra del Tiempo 2017),
Yamaha (SLG 130NW silent classical guitar 2014).

Not to hijack the thread, but does anyone know about any good apps for android too?

I mean sometimes apps are available for both apple and android, but for notation, it seems it's only available for apple.

From a quick Google search it seems that maestro is the highest regarded one for android, but I have no experience with it.

Any suggestions? Thank you!!

Thank you for your suggestion.
I went to their website and app looks pretty good.
They have also Pregression Guitar Tab Editor for the ipad, whick looks good as well.

Theresa you are not hijacking the thread,but on their website they advertise that both apps are available in the Itune store.

Good luck.

Symphony pro is a really good app
Easy to use, quite a few different instrument sounds for play back, even converts regular music PDF's so that you can hear/see them played with this app.
Great value at $15

Can anyone compare "notion" to "progression"? Notion is more expensive and you have to buy a guitar editor for another buck. Progression is made by the same company, but seems geared towards guitar. I haven't seen a good side by side comparison though, and don't want to buy both to find out one is all I need.

Symphony pro is really good but it crashes all the time, hope the next update fix those bugs, but it is a really great app!
