NOTION - New Notation Software
VirtuosoWorks announced that a demo version of NOTION, its award winning music composition and performance software, is now available on its Web site.
NOTION v1.5 combines a full-featured music notation system with interpretive algorithms linked to a proprietary playback engine that offers samples of thousands of individual notes and articulations. That's all wonderful, of course, but what really puts this product over the top is the fact that the instruments and sections were played by the world-famous London Symphony Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
Features (aside from the LSO) include:
- Over 1,000 notes of polyphony
- Convenient MIDI keyboard entry
- NotionPlayer for real-time "conducting" of the score
- MusicXML import
- Scalable reverb from natural, recorded decay
- Integral audio mixer with mute, solo, and balance
