From the Developer

A pioneer in touch-based music composition, Symphony Pro lets you compose complex orchestrations, lead sheets, chord charts, and guitar tabs on the iPad and instantly hear them played back. This is the easiest and most comprehensive way to compose sheet music on your iPad.

Record a part in real-time with the built-in keyboard, guitar, or bass guitar to quickly capture a musical idea and have it automatically transcribed into sheet music.

Import a MusicXML, MXL, MIDI, or Symphony file from your computer or from another app like Mail or Safari, create a new project based on a template, or create a brand new project, and you're ready to start editing.

To add a note, select a note length and tap anywhere on the score. Use the built-in keyboard, guitar, or bass guitar instruments, or a Core MIDI compatible keyboard to quickly enter notes and chords in normal editing mode or in real-time recording mode.

You can add a wide range of notational elements to your compositions including many different dynamics and articulations, time and key signature changes, clef changes, alternate endings, repeats, double accidentals, double and triple dotted notes, arpeggiated chords, glissandos, tuplets, tempo changes, coda markings, pedal markings, alternate noteheads, similes, and pickup measures. You can also create and edit chord symbols, lyrics, and annotations using the iPad’s standard keyboard.

When you're done composing, print out your score, or export it as a PDF, MusicXML, AAC, MIDI or Symphony file. Share your files via email or directly to a computer with iTunes File Sharing, or save images of your score directly to the Photos app and share them through Photo Stream.
