Notion 6.4’s New Features

NEW FEATURES in Notion 6.4!

Notion 6.4 is here, adding integration with the just-released Studio One 4, and a bevy of other new features! This is a free update for Notion 6 owners that can be obtained by clicking “Check for Updates” within Notion.

Enhanced integration with Studio One v4

With Studio One’s new Chord Track & Key Signature, the integration with Notion has become more powerful than ever. See all the details in the updated User Guide here.

Receive Chords from Studio One’s new Chord Track


 

Quickly make a lead-sheet, complete with Studio One’s new chords, all with the right formatting and transpositions!

 


Receive Studio One’s new key signature—This means imported note data can now be “spelt” properly, with the correct enharmonic.
