Re: Back working with NOTION 3

I have only one rebuttal. When is Notion 4 being released? :roll:

Re: Back working with NOTION 3

Valid points, David. The sample quality varies in N3. The brass are improved over N2, but the woodwind samples are quite poor. Combine the poor sample quality with a total lack of any dynamic control and you have saxophones sounding like kazoos and the entire sound environment sounding more like a m...

Re: Help - Scoring for clarinet

I've been using Notion since 2005.... Notion 1.0. I was very much looking forward to N3, and was looking to purchase East-West. The issue lies with the N3 rendering engine which has a lot of improvements, but far too many issues for me to use. I use N2 and have all the expanded kits for N2. N2 sampl...

Re: Help - Scoring for clarinet

I'd use external libraries with N3, but there are so many problems with the N3 engine, it wouldn't be worth investing money in external sound libraries as N3's faults(no dynamics for one) would still be present. I'm a little confused by this. Notion3 responds to dynamic instructions (and the four l...

Re: Help - Scoring for clarinet

Keywise.....there's no real problems. Clarinets are transposing instruments, and are used to playing with sharps, or flats. Anything with up to 2 sharps to 2 flats(concert) is quite doable. Beyond that(especially #s), you are asking for a lot from the soloist. For example, concert D(2 sharps) would ...

Re: Help - Scoring for clarinet

The clarinet sample for Notion2 is quite good. The clarinet sample(and all samples) in N3 are very poor and to my ears practically unusable. Take a listen to the saxophones with the new Jazz kit - they sound like kazoos. Literally. The trick,if you use N2 samples,is to litter the score with hairpins...

Re: Help - Scoring for clarinet

The clarinet is pretty versatile and can likely handle almost anything that the composer throws at it, however, there are some things to consider. The instrument has several distinct registers - chalumeau , throat, clarion and altissimo. The chalumeau(E3 to F4) is the lowest. No issues with anything...

Re: Does anyone collaborate on transcribing to Notion?

I'm transcribing all five movements Ravel's orchestration for his Mother Goose Suite into Notion from a public domain score. The problem with midi input is usually rhythmic errors;I find it easier and faster just to enter it all manually. You have a good idea. At one point, Notion had and paid money...

Re: how dynamics really works?

In a nutshell--dynamics don't work well(if at all) in N3. This has been an issue since its release and the main reason why I won't use Notion 3.
