At the 2007 Summer NAMM Show, Notion Music introduced Progression, a new sequencer, tablature and playback application designed for guitar players.
Progression is designed to be a powerful, yet easy-to-use guitar application for creating, learning, and distributing music. Guitar tablature or standard notation can be entered with a keyboard and mouse, or played into the program with a MIDI guitar or MIDI keyboard.
Progression then plays back the music instantly with its extensive built-in sound library. Songs and ideas can be shared by creating guitar tabs, lead sheets, and standard sheet music or by simply exporting an audio file with a complete band backing track.
Progression features thousands of real electric and acoustic guitar samples from Neil Zaza, and electric bass and drums samples from Grammy Award winners Victor Wooten and Roy “Future-Man” Wooten. Also included are grand piano, upright bass, clavinet, and electric piano – all in high-definition audio. VST hosting capability enables the use of effects plug-ins and amp modelers and a built-in mixer give the user complete control over the rest of the mix.Features:
