NOTION Music announces Version 1.6 of NOTION, its flagship music composition and performance software. This update adds new scoring features, improves file handling, adds support for lyrics and expands NOTION’s capabilities beyond classical music genres.
NOTION Version 1.6 supports chord symbol entry and playback, special note entry (x, triangle and slash), and forced “page-turns,” and improves tempo markings, beaming, ties, tuplets and overall rendering of score appearance. The handling of repeats has also been improved as well as NOTION’s ability to read and interpret articulations and imported data.
To coincide with the release of Sessions: Rhythm Section, the company’s first sound expansion kit featuring pop and rock sounds and recordings, NOTION now includes the ability to notate for drum set. This includes multiple instruments on one staff, alternate note heads, a “stir” feature for realistic sounding jazz-brush techniques on snare drum, ghost-note notation and performance, and cross-stick and rim-shot notation and performance for snare drum.
Version 1.6 also offers better file handling, including Music XML import and export, MIDI file import, step MIDI input and improved mixdown of WAV files.
