In addition to many other features, Version 1.5 of VirtuosoWorks' NOTION music composition and performance software offers compatibility with the Macintosh platform. NOTION 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 played by the London Symphony Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
NOTION 1.5 also includes MIDI entry, Music XML import and NotionPlayer conducting tools. NotionPlayer allows the user to "conduct" the software to accompany live performers.
Notion 1.5 will be available in February 2006 for $599 ($399 for academic/theological/nonprofit users).
