I'm trying to build on this answer:

\documentclass[handout]{beamer}
\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\usetheme{Copenhagen}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\pgfpagesuselayout{2 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm] % could also use letterpaper
\setbeamertemplate{note page}[plain] % Beamer manual, section 19.1
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=bottom} % Beamer manual, section 19.3

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
Here's some content, with no notes added.
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}
Here's some content, with notes added.
\end{frame}
\note{
Here are things to remember:
\begin{enumerate}
\item Stress this first.
\item Then this.
\end{enumerate}
}
\end{document}

I'd like to print two slides per page, but I can't get it to work:

\documentclass[handout]{beamer}
\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\usetheme{Copenhagen}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm] % could also use letterpaper
\setbeamertemplate{note page}[plain] % Beamer manual, section 19.1
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=bottom} % Beamer manual, section 19.3
%\pgfpagesuselayout{resize to}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm]

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
Here's some content, with no notes added.
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}
Here's some content, with notes added.
\end{frame}
\note{
Here are things to remember:
\begin{enumerate}
\item Stress this first.
\item Then this.
\end{enumerate}
}
\end{document}

You can print 4 on 1 if you use \setbeameroption{show notes} for the handout mode.

\documentclass[handout]{beamer}
\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\usetheme{Copenhagen}
\usepackage{pgfpages}

\mode<handout>{%
    \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=7mm]
    \setbeameroption{show notes}
}


\mode<beamer>{%
    \setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=bottom}
}


\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
1 Here's some content, with no notes added.
\note{test}
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}
2 Here's some content, with notes added.
\end{frame}
\note{
Here are things to remember:
\begin{enumerate}
\item Stress this first.
\item Then this.
\end{enumerate}
}
\end{document}
