  • Notion 5–recensione–notazione musicale

    Software di videoscrittura /notazione musicale multipiattaforma con ottima selezione di virtual instrument preinstallati (registrati appositamente ad Abbey Road dalla London Symphony Orchestra)

    http://www.presonus.com/products/Notion-5

    PreSonus Notion is famed for outstanding playback sounds, speedy workflow, compatibility, and ease of use, and it’s the only notation software that works with a standalone iPad app. It offers powerful features for scoring to picture. And it costs a fraction of what those slow, bloated, overcomplicated scoring programs soak you for. That’s why Notion 5 is the best notation software for composers, performers, producers, worship teams, arrangers, orchestrators, educators, and music students.

    Hear Your Music Played by World-Class Musicians.

    Notion gives you by far the best playback of any notation product, including orchestral samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra. But that’s just the beginning of its playback features.

    Interactive Tools Make Entry Fast and Intuitive.

    Enter notes with ease using Notion 5’s interactive fretboard, keyboard, and drum pad. Choose chords from a generous chord library (enhanced in version 5), and create your own chords.

    Truly Cross Platform.

    Create a score in Notion for Mac or Windows—then continue to work on it in Notion for iPad. Or start with the iPad and transfer to your Mac or Windows computer for in-depth editing. No other notation software can do this.

    Picture This.

    If you compose to picture, Notion 5 is your new best friend.

    Film, video, and TV composers have specialized needs that just start with a synchronized video window. Notion’s video window includes a new timecode view, and you can add hitpoints and select the volume, frame rate, and start time. That’s all important stuff but not uncommon.

    However, other scoring software falls short when it comes to supporting modern video file formats. In contrast, Notion can handle all of the most important formats, including mp4, WMV (Windows only), H.264, mpeg, mov, avi, m4v, and 3gp on Mac and Windows.

    Furthermore, Notion can handle video while in 32-bit or native 64-bit mode for Mac and Windows—and Notion is the only major scoring program that handles video natively on 64-bit Windows.

    Plays Well with Others.

    In addition to working well with VST instruments and transferring to and from iPad, Notion offers support for standard file formats—and ReWire.

    Notion 5 offers compatibility with other applications in several ways. It can import and export Wave files, including upsampling for export, and can export the audio for each staff or bus as an individual stem and import it into PreSonus’ popular Studio One® DAW. Want to share audio files online? Simply upload them to SoundCloud™ from within Notion!

    Notion’s ability to export in a variety of modern video formats is one of several features that make it a great choice for scoring to picture. It can also import and export Standard MIDI Files, MusicXML files—especially useful for collaborating with people who are using other notation applications—and Arobas Guitar Pro tablature files (v. 3 to 5).

    And of course, you can import and export between Notion and Notion for iPad orProgression for iPad.

    Last, and far from least, Notion supports ReWire as a host and slave in 64-bit or 32-bit mode. During playback, with Notion as the host, you have full access to Notion’s playback and performance features using the computer keyboard or MIDI keyboard. As the stereo stream from the slave application arrives at Bus A in the mixer, you can alter gain, panning, effects, and so on, just like any other instrument.

    As a slave, Notion follows the commands of a host application but. Notion can send up to 32 streams to the host application, plus start and stop playback and audition new notes. In fact, you may even forget that Notion is in slave mode until the host begins a playback operation.

    For an extremely potent, yet easy-to-use combination, ReWire Notion with Studio One. Now you can take advantage of Notion’s superior playback sounds and notation capabilities, including video scoring, plus Studio One’s in-depth editing, processing, and (with Studio One Professional) mastering and digital release features—including direct upload to PreSonus’ Nimbit direct-to-fan online marketing and promotion platform. Of course you also can save your scores as PDF files!

    Capture MIDI Parts and Edit Them with Your Score.

    Recording and editing MIDI data is easy in Notion. Viewing MIDI and standard notation together makes the experience special.

    Capture your MIDI performances better than ever before in Notion. Choose keyboard, guitar, or drum entry and dial in exactly how Notion will follow your playing. Enter in real time or in step time. Then view your MIDI performance data in Notion’s Sequencer Staff.

    Better yet, use the Sequencer Overlay, which allows you to see notation and MIDI performance data on the same staff. Edit each individual note’s velocity, duration, start point, and end point using drag-and-drop. For precise values, double-click each note and enter in the numeric values as well. With this feature, Notion combines the power of the MIDI sequencer with the clarity of standard notation in a unique and powerful way.

    Overdubbing MIDI performance data is great for adding expressive controllers, recording key switches, or trying that line one more time, and it’s easy to do in Notion. You also may want to merge recorded MIDI data and new events. Notion allows you to overdub your MIDI recordings in either Merge or Replace mode, giving you full control over the performance.

    Every Bit Helps.

    Here’s a bit of good news: Notion 5 can run with 64-bit or 32-bit addressing on Mac and Windows. It works great with Windows 8 touchscreens and Mac Retina displays, too.

    Take advantage of your 64-bit computer and operating system’s ability to address more than 4 GB of RAM and watch the speed and performance of Notion and VSTs and sample libraries increase!

    You can also run Notion in 32-bit mode on a 64-bit computer for compatibility with other products. And in version 5, Notion adds Mac Retina display support and Windows 8 touchscreen optimization.

    Don’t Just Play Your Music: Perform and Produce it, Too.

    Notion 5 enables you to perform your scores live and even offers features you expect in a digital audio workstation—including PreSonus plug-ins!

    Notion lets you play back a score with playback following metronome marks—and does so better than any of the competition thanks to its superior sound library.

    But with Notion, you also can perform your score live, using NTempo mode, continuously controlling tempo (and volume if using a velocity-sensitive MIDI controller) by tapping keys on a MIDI controller or computer keyboard. The faster you tap, the faster the tempo. A playback marker shows you where you are in the score. Performing in NTempo mode has many uses but it’s especially great for music students and educators.

    Notion also lets you import audio files and mix them with your score using the built-in software mixer, which includes eight buses, panning, inserts, subgroups, and more. Process your audio with the built-in reverb, guitar-amp simulator, and Native Effects™ EQ, compressor, and limiter plug-ins from PreSonus’ Studio One DAW.

    Yes, Notion is a professional notation program but it’s clearly much more!

    Score a Copy of Notion 5!

    By now, you should have the notion that PreSonus Notion 5 is a fast, modern, efficient, easy-to-use, great-sounding notation program—and it’s far more affordable than its slow, bloated, old-school competition. Notion is available in U.S. and British English, French, German, Japanese, and Latin American Spanish.

    So head for your PreSonus dealer, visit the online PreSonus Marketplace, or contact the good folks at Hal Leonard Publishing and score your copy of Notion.

    Ipad App–The Orchestra–Recensione

    L’applicazione è stata realizzata da Touch Press con l’ausilio del maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen, il quale dirige la famosa Filarmonica in estratti di otto opere che rappresentano tre secoli di musica sinfonica. L’orchestra consente una selezione in tempo reale di tracce audio e video, inoltre è incluso uno spartito sincronizzato in automatico e una visualizzazione grafica dinamica delle singole note per ogni brano eseguito. Il risultato è un ambiente che permette di esplorare il suono di tutti gli strumenti dell’orchestra.

    Questi i brani presenti:

    • Haydn: Sinfonia numero 6
    • Beethoven: Sinfonia numero 5
    • Berlioz: Sinfonia Fantastica
    • Debussy: Prélude à l’après midi d’un faune
    • Mahler: Sinfonia numero 6
    • Stravinsky: L’uccello di fuoco
    • Lutosławski: Concerto per orchestra
    • Salonen: Concerto per violino

    Tra le altre funzioni dell’app, troviamo la riproduzione multi traccia e multi angolazione di otto brani con partitura sincronizzata in automatico, sia in versione completa che in rappresentazione semplificata, la funzionalità NoteMap sincronizzata che evidenzia ogni nota suonata in una visualizzazione grafica dell’orchestra, i commenti audio e/o sottotitoli facoltativi per ogni brano da parte del direttore e dei musicisti, la possibilità di scoprire come suona ogni strumento e di leggere, guardare e ascoltare i musicisti che spiegano il loro ruolo all’interno dell’orchestra. Troviamo anche un testo completo da 80.000 parole sui brani, i compositori e gli strumenti, scritto appositamente dal critico musicale del LA Times Mark Swed.

    Recensione del controller Midi prodotto dalla NOVATION e distribuito in Italia da www.midiware.com

    Controller 61 tasti USB e MIDI – 16 Drum Pad retroilluminati – 8 Controlli rotativi – 9 Fader assegnabil – 8 pulsanti Mute/solo – Schermo LED – InControl – Software incluso: Ableton Live Lite, BassStation, V-Station e Loopmaster Sample Pack

    No_launch

     

    Novation Launchkey 61 è una superficie di controllo per DAW ‘full optional’ con più di 50 controlli hardware. E’ molto più di una semplice tastiera controller USB, è un potente strumento con totale integrazione hardware e software e il numero massimo di controlli disponibili per un device di questa tipologia. In aggiunta a queste funzionalità, Launchkey prevede naturalmente il normale controllo MIDI, diventando il dispositivo ideale da affiancare ad una digital audio workstation, con controllo istantaneo di volumi, panning, send delle tracce e altri parametri impostabili tramite il nuovo sistema di integrazione software Novation InControl. I 16 launch pad retroilluminati a due colori sono velocity-sensitive e possono essere utilizzati per suonare pattern ritmici, triggerare loop e molto altro ancora.

    Launchkey integra le app per iPad Launchkey (sintetizzatore virtual analog) e la nuovissima app Launchpad che consente di mandare in riproduzione i loop con drag-and-drop immediato dai pad e variazione degli effetti in tempo reale. La nuova linea Novation include anche una suite di software per Mac e PC che comprende V-Station, Bass Station, il Loopmasters sample pack e Ableton Live Lite.
    Sono disponibili tre modelli di Launchkey con tastiera da 25, 49 e 61 tasti velocity-sensitive “synth-style”. Tutti includono 16 launch pads, due pulsanti di controllo Launchpad e otto controlli rotativi. E’ incluso anche un display LED 3-digit, controlli di trasporto, pitch e mod wheels, ingresso per pedale sustain, pulsanti transpose e altro ancora. Il modello a 25 tasti integra un unico fader assegnabile mentre i modelli a 49 e 61 tasti hanno nove fader, con pulsante retroilluminato ‘mode’ e otto pulsanti mute/solo.

    Launchkey è perfettamente integrato con software di altissimo livello. Il synth Launchkey per iPad (compatibile con iPad 2 o superiore) utilizza il motore di sintesi Novation ed una nuova interfaccia touchscreen estremamente intuitiva. Si possono controllare parametri multipli del synth contemporaneamente per creare effetti unici, mentre i potenziometri della tastiera sono direttamente collegati ai controlli del sintetizzatore. La app Launchpad per iPad utilizza i pulsanti per triggerare loop e include un’ampia gamma di effetti.

    Caratteristiche principali:
    • Controller con totale integrazione software/hardware per Mac, PC & iPad
    • Nuova tecnologia InControl per mappare istantaneamente l’hardware a tutti i software principali
    • 16 launch pad multicolore velocity-sensitive per triggerare loop e suonare pattern ritmici

    • 9 Fader / 8 Pulsanti
    • Tastiera “synth-style”
    Software incluso
    • Novation Launchkey app (per iPad)
    • Novation Launchpad app (per iPad

    Notate Me–Edizione Gratuita

    Qualche giorno fa abbiamo postato una recensione del software NOTATE ME, app di videoscrittura per dispositivi mobili.

    Permalink to Notate Me–Videoscrittura Musicale per Ipad

    E’ stata appena rilasciata una versione gratuita del software per dispositivi ANDROID (quella per Ios Apple seguirà a breve).

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.neuratron.notatemenow&hl=en

    Tale versione è limitata ad un solo “staff” ovvero potete realizzare spartiti per un solo strumento, ma è più che sufficiente per prendere appunti.

    Un ottimo regalo di Natale non c’è che dire!

    Notate Me–Videoscrittura Musicale per Ipad

    Notate Me è un’utilissima APP per Ipad e dispositivi Android che serve per…scrivere musica. Detto così sembra semplice, ma in realtà è un settore che, almeno fino ad oggi era privo di alternative interessanti. Anche se il fascino di scrivere musica su carta rimane ineguagliabile, Notate Me offre un’interessante alternativa.

    – Write music for solo instruments (including voice and piano) or ensembles from string quartets and choirs to full orchestral scores. Includes support for transposing instruments.

    – NotateMe recognises a wide range of music symbols, including notes (with solid, open, and slanted noteheads), flags, beams (even cross-staff*), leger lines, multiple voices per staff, chords, rests, accidentals (natural, sharp and flat), articulation marks, augmentation dots, ties, slurs, tuplets, hairpins, clef changes, key signatures. Barlines, clefs and time signatures are added automatically.

    – Add chord-symbols, dynamics and lyrics to your score. Write comments or ideas in ‘red pen’.
    – It works while you write – the printed score updates automatically without you needing to stop and wait.

    – If NotateMe doesn’t recognize your style immediately, keep at it, as it will adjust. Leave clear space between symbols and make markings clearer with further strokes if any transcription errors occur. If you experience problems, tap ‘Help Improve NotateMe’ from the Export menu and we will analyze your handwriting to help us improve NotateMe further.
