San Francisco, CA (January 10, 2006)–At the Macworld Expo that kicked off yesterday in San Francisco, VirtuosoWorks, Inc. announced version 1.5 of its NOTION music composition and performance software. Atop the list of new features is compatibility with the Macintosh platform.
“The Mac is a staple in the music and education markets,” stated Dr. Jack M. Jarrett, founder of VirtuosoWorks and VP of Research and Development. “Students and professionals alike can now have the power of NOTION and the sound of the London Symphony Orchestra at their fingertips, regardless of their platform choice.”
Developed by VirtuosoWorks, Inc., NOTION combines a full-featured music notation system with interpretive algorithms linked to a proprietary playback engine that offers samples of thousands of individual notes and articulations played by the London Symphony Orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
In addition to cross-platform compatibility (Mac/PC), NOTION 1.5 includes MIDI entry, Music XML import, and NotionPlayer conducting tools. NotionPlayer allows the user to “conduct” the software to accompany live performers, making NOTION a versatile and practical live performance system.
NOTION 1.5 will be available in February 2006 and will have an MSRP of $599, and an Academic/Theological/Nonprofit price of $399. For audio examples and ordering information, please visit www.notionmusic.com.
