At NYC Music Services we’ve made a demo of Notation Express available for anyone to try. Notation Express is our custom-designed profile for the Stream Deck console that makes powerful notation features in Sibelius and Dorico accessible via an easy-to-use touch interface.
The demo gives you a sense of what it’s like to use Notation Express, but it includes just a small subset of the hundreds of functions in the paid version, and is not intended to make you super-productive — that’s what the paid version is for, of course — but you can generally see how it all works and do a few useful things with it.
Some folders in the demo do not contain any actions, while others have quite a few. The demo uses the default shortcuts of Sibelius or Dorico and does not include any of the custom keyboard shortcut files or plug-ins that give Notation Express its true power.
Of course, in order to use Notation Express, you need the 15-key Stream Deck console OR the Stream Deck Mobile app from Elgato (purchased separately), and either Sibelius or Dorico. The Stream Deck console and Stream Deck Mobile are not included with either the demo or the paid version of Notation Express.
You can use the demo for as long as you like, but if you’re using the demo with Stream Deck Mobile, be aware that there is only a 3-day trial before you have to start paying for a subscription to the Stream Deck Mobile app.
The paid version of the Notation Express profile is not a subscription — it is a one time purchase of $29.
If you have an iPhone, load it up and see how you like it before you buy it!
