They tell us that 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 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 â€œFuture-Manâ€� 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.
Jim Boitnott, VP of Business Development for Notion Music, Inc. told us, â€œPROGRESSION will revolutionize the way many guitar players create music. 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.â€�
Notion Music believe that 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.
Pricing and Availability:
PROGRESSION will be available in September, 2007 for $149.99
Progression is a great writing tool. I have been testing and composing on it for a few months now. The sounds are amazing. You can get great tones through the amp simulation or just the natural sounds of the acoustic instruments. Easy note entry and sound customization makes it a simple to compose a whole song. If your familiar with tab, the tab feature allows you to get your guitar parts in with all the bends, slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs. Progression even comes with a chord and beat library if you need some inspiration to â€œget the ball rolling.â€� All of the instruments included in Progression (keyboards, bass, and drums) give you the ability to write for instruments you may not play! The save as audio feature makes it easy to export your whole song or just parts of it as a .wav file to share with friends or band-mates. If you are looking for an easy to use music creation tool with great sound quality, take a look at Progression.
