Announcing Progression: Notion Music Aims To Inspire Guitar Players With New Software [ Summer NAMM 2007 ]

United States
NAMM, Austin, TX (July 27, 2007) — NOTION Music, Inc., a leading provider of music software solutions, announces PROGRESSION, a powerful new tablature and playback application designed for guitar players.

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.

“PROGRESSION will revolutionize the way many guitar players create music,” said Jim Boitnott, VP of Business Development for NOTION Music, Inc. “With powerful tab and notation features coupled with its great playback and amp simulation options, PROGRESSION makes it more efficient and rewarding to write out guitar ideas, lead sheets, or parts for an entire band.”

PROGRESSION is a powerful, yet easy-to-use guitar application for creating, learning, and distributing music. Guitar tablature or standard notation can be quickly 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 will also help maximize practice time by enabling the user to hear the guitar parts, and learn songs and solos much faster by instantly changing the tempo and key to suit and any ability. Users can also beef up the guitar tracks with other instruments and play with a band in the privacy of their own practice space.
