Description

SymphonyPro 5 is a complete and intuitive app for writing music notation on iPad. It allows you to compose music for just about any size ensemble, from piano, symphonies, band, lead sheets, chord charts, guitar tabs, and more.

Starting Version 5, Symphony Pro now offers handwriting recognition as the only in-app purchase: Perfect with Apple Pencil, and works great with touch or capacitive stylus

GETTING STARTED

SP provides all of the key options to begin your work. Import a score via MusicXML, MXL, MIDI, or SP file from your computer, or from apps like Dropbox, Mail, iCloud Drive, or Safari. You can base your project on a template, or start a blank score and add additional parts later.

EDITING

To add notes, choose Pencil mode, and tap anywhere on a bar to begin editing right away. You can quickly specify note properties before or after placing notes. By switching to Select mode with one touch, you can also transpose, erase, cut, and paste multiple notes/tracks.

With an on-screen instrument, a QWERTY keyboard, or Core MIDI compatible keyboard, you can quickly enter notes & chords in step entry mode. Record a part in real-time with on-screen instruments to transcribe into notation.

Versions 4 & 5 take greater advantage of the iPad touchscreen. With shortcuts and contextual menus to edit note & bar properties, many of the commonly used editing commands are right at your fingertips.

SP supports a wide range of notational elements for your composition. Including dynamics & articulations, time & key signature changes, clef changes, pedals, and repeat conventions. Edit chord symbols, lyrics, and annotations using the iPad’s standard keyboard.

EXPORT & SHARE

When you’re finished, print out your score with AirPrint, or export it as a PDF, MusicXML, AAC, MIDI, or Symphony file. Share files via email or directly to another computer or iPad via Dropbox/iCloud Drive.

Huge Dissapointment

Handwriting recognition simply does not work. Massive waste of money. Real shame as it had potential. Had no word back from the company after trying to make contact on social media either. Very poor.

Much better than I thought it would be.

Have successfully used app to write individual parts for a choir. Am very happy with the results, pdf output is good and audio playback works well. Was disappointed that midi output did not include lyrics, but maybe expecting too much.

Am using iPad Air with just my finger with no problem. Love the handwriting recognition feature.

Did not take too long to work out how to use menus.
Program crashed three or four times when using it for about 6 hours but I did not lose any work. So not much time lost.

Would like to be able to copy music notes only from a section of music notes and associated lyrics and paste the music notes only. This would be in order to replace other music notes that have associated lyrics without altering those lyrics. As the notes and lyrics are associated it does not seem to be possible at the moment to split them when copying and pasting.

At last

I have been looking for scoring software that actually gets the job done for years. This actually works. Bravo!
