Well this is spooky I was only saying the other day that I wondered what had happened to Notion Progression, I reviewed the first release of their Progression TAB software back in October 2007, since then Guitar Pro have basically dominated the market but this looks like a definite contender.
Award-winning notation software developer NOTION Music, Inc has announced the release of its latest composition software for guitar, bass and drums, Progression 2.0. The original Progression redefined the capabilities of guitar tab software, and now Progression 2.0 leads the industry with an even more intuitive interface, compatibility between desktop and iPad, and great playback featuring real guitar samples performed by guitarist Neil Zaza, bass samples by Victor Wooten, and drum samples by Roy “Futureman” Wooten.
Progression 2.0 allows users to work on multiple platforms, with compatibility between Progression for iPad and desktop computers. Musicians can begin a composition on their desktop, make on-the-go edits via iPad, and then bring the project back to the desktop for final editing. With Progression 2.0, musicians have the freedom to work where and when they want.
“We are very proud to be able to create and release a product as terrific as Progression at this very affordable price point,” says Jim Boitnott, Notion Music President/CEO. “It’s a great solution for songwriters and guitarists. A powerful tool that fits into their workflow while allowing compatibility with the Progression for iPad app.”
Progression 2.0 makes it easy to create your own guitar tab, lead sheets, and standard sheet music complete with an audio track of your own, and enables you to hear these compositions come to life with astonishingly real sounding samples of guitar, bass, drums and more. Essential professional features such as native 64-bit support, interactive entry tools, sequencer overlay, MIDI record/input and step-time entry allow for multiple quick and convenient ways to compose music in Progression 2.0.
