No other product allows you to create a score on your desktop and then transfer it to your iPad where you can continue to edit and playback your music. Now with Progression you can. If you have Progression and the Progression or Notion iPad app you can send and open scores from each device and continue to work on your score, anywhere, anytime.
Interactive Entry Tools (Keyboard, Fretboard, Drum Pad, Chord Library)
Now you can enter notes into Progression with the interactive fretboard, keyboard, or drum pad. Many users find it convenient to first capture their pitches or guitar fingerings they perform on an instrument before translating them into notation or tablature. These interactive entry tools allow for a quick, convenient way to build your score. You can customize the amount of guitar strings on the fretboard or the order of entry for each voice for the drum pad. Also, use the chord library to enter the chord name or voicing you want to appear in your score. Choose from standard chord symbols or a fretted chord symbol.
Native 64-bit Support (MAC OS X and Windows)
Realize the potential of your 64-bit computer. Take advantage of 64-bit’s ability to address more than 4GB of RAM and watch the speed and performance of Progression as well as your VST’s increase. (Progression is still 32-bit compatible. You can also run Progression in 32-bit on a 64-bit computer for compatibility purposes with other products)
MIDI Record/Input and Step-Time Entry
Capture your MIDI performance better than ever before in Notion. Choose between keyboard or guitar entry as well as having an incredible level or tweakability to dial in the way Notion will follow your playing.
