Compositions on Staffpad.

You have to render first. So you won't hear instant pitch or note feedback when you draw/write a note in. But I've been able to create some pretty complex harmonies by just dragging notes around afterwards if my transcription from my inner ear to the Apple Pencil is a bit off. Pretty easy workflow.
Cool, thanks. That's what I intend to do...maybe just get the rhythm down then move the notes. Thank you....waiting for the new iPad Pro to drop before getting this. :)

I actually find this methodology works rather well, and quickly. If I write in the phrase and it's not quite what I hear in my head, adjusting is a snap.

Just be patient with StaffPad. It's amazing but it's still in its infancy in many ways. Once you embrace what it does do, the sky is the limit musically. I see too many people who fight it and it's not the way to success.
 
Just to let you know dcoscina, I reed all of your posts in the Staffpad sub-forum and based on your opinions I decided 6 months ago to go for it.

Don't regret for a second.
Sometimes is a pain when it decided not to recognize a particular symbol but I have never composed so fast in past as I am doing now (except when I was composing in paper and pencil :))

Thanks! That’s nice to know! I’m glad it’s worked out for you . I dreamt about an app like this for decades and I’m glad it’s more or less arrived. DWH is actively working on improving it and I think it will be even better. As it stands, I no longer need to be in my studio to compose orchestral music and get pretty fine feedback sonically
