Progression Guitar Software - A Great Gift For Guitarists

Published: Tue December 15, 2009  News Feed

If you're stuck for an idea for a guitarist then check out this great new software from Notion Music - Progession Guitar Software. Here's a YouTube vide from 'SouthBoundTraveller' who used the software to record a track he was working on. The guitar sound you can hear is not a real guitar but is generated from within Progression. He had this to say about the software.

This is a screen capture of a guitar tab I'm working on for an arrangement I did of Ronald Jenkee's "Messin with a guitar sound". The software is Notion's "Progression" and when it comes to making tabs, this program is tops. Even as a total novice with this software I was able to come up with this in just a couple of hours, it's that easy to use!

The great thing about Progression is that you can input the notes by playing them in real time via a MIDI guitar. Set the tempo, hit record, start playing and the software automatically assigns the notes rhythmic values and inputs the tab. You can also input the notes one at a time by using the keyboard or importing a MIDI file. Granted you may have to brush up on your standard notation skills (which I obviously need to do LOL!), this brings tabbing out a song for guitar to a whole new level.

Another awesome feature of Progression is the quality of the samples used for playback. I originally recorded this particular song on an acoustic. After auditioning a few of the distorted guitar sounds, however, I found that they sounded really, really good (well at least for this type of software anyway....). So although the tab reflects the version I did on acoustic, I wanted you guys to hear what it sounds like with a tone that more closely resembled RJ's original vid. Please note the original song is tuned down half-step so if you want to match the pitch you will need to tune your guitar down to Eb.

We've got a great deal on the software at the moment and you can save 23% while stocks last.
