Product Description

The Notion Strings 2 Expansion Kit for Notion 2 allows individual users to customize the sound library of their NOTION software. Some kits simply provide additional playing techniques for existing instruments, while other kits add completely new instruments into the mix. These kits are manufactured separately so that you don't get stuck paying for sounds you'll never use. Currently, new kits are being released at intervals of every 1-2 months, so the NOTION sound library is always growing.

Expanded Strings II - This kit expands on the new sounds and techniques introduced in Expanded Strings I for violin, viola, cello and bass sections. The new sounds include col legno, sul ponticello, bartok pizzicato, minor third tremolando, major third tremolando, perfect fourth tremolando, open string, and natural and artificial harmonics.

All orchestral NOTION Music sounds were recorded at Abbey Road Studio I under the supervision of Recording Engineer Jonathan Allen. Electric bass and drum set sounds were recorded at Dark Horse Recording in Nashville, TN and guitar was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, NY.

NOTION 2.0 is an advanced music program dedicated to bringing a revolutionary degree of realism to the creation and communication of your musical vision. The NOTION playback engine is natively equipped with a library of realistic sampled sounds taken from the musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra, which means that your music goes from inception to realization right away.

NOTION's score-entry interface offers a set of highly-intuitive keyboard shortcuts that make manual entry faster than ever. The NTempo feature enables you to take musical ideas even further, offering the opportunity to control the performance tempo in real time.

The software also comes equipped with a built-in audio mixer, including the ability to adjust volume, decay, and panning of each individual instrument. Scores and NTempo sessions can be saved to WAV format, complete with any custom mixer settings. With its variety of practical uses, NOTION offers infinite opportunity for you to discover your true inner musician.
