Hi, I bought the iPad Notion ukulele sound package a while ago. It does not include the sound for a Low G string. It's a very big problem for me. I am constantly needing them. You are not warned of that at the time of purchase.

Ukulele is the fastest growing instrument of choice in the world! The Notion app has not kept up with it. Most Uke players who are learning a more classical approach use Low G strings. I'm arranging for ukulele ensembles with four or more parts sometimes and I'm writing chord/melody arrangements and that means the low G string is desperately needed.

It doesn't make sense that I can select Low G as the tuning and not hear the sound. If I'd known the Low G sound would not play, I would not have bought the Uke package. Then I could hear it with piano sounds. There is not even the option to turn off the sound package so I can create ukulele arrangements with Low G and hear them with piano sounds.

It's so frustrating to not be able to hear the arrangements through.

I also think alternate turnings should be possible.

Is there any plan to fix the ukulele package? When? Please!

Cheers, Steph

I agree. I bought the sample (and notion) for doing "proof-listening" of ukulele scores, being tired of the awful articulation of rival products. Nowhere in the detail was there any mention of range. Very disappointing and frustrating. The suggestion I was given was to write it in a second staff and play it on classical guitar. After the expense involved I would have hoped for better than a kluge.

At the very least, put the range on your materials.

Agreed! Please make the playback with Low G ukulele tuning possible as I need to hear all of the notes (including those below middle C on that Low G string) in my multi-part arrangements. I also bought Notion believing this was already possible! Thank you.
