Seriously though, I would write rules (as best I can) for Wivi and Synful (I own Wivi and will soon own Synful) if given the opportunity. Not to mention expanding my JABB rules and writing rules for Garritan's World Instruments.


This makes excellent sense to me on many levels, and I like the idea of having a NOTION Developer Program and a NOTION Store where customers can purchase add-ons and other third party products for enhancing NOTION, where in particular I like the idea of a NOTION Store because it avoids developers needing to mess with accounting and product delivery stuff . . .

Creating a NOTION Developer Program and a NOTION Store for third-party add-ons and enhancements is a lot of work, but over the long run I think it can be a very smart thing for Notion Music to do . . .

Propellerhead Software did this recently, where they created a new addition to their Reason platform, which is called 'Rack Extensions", and it has spawned a new industry which is coming along nicely for everyone . . .

[NOTE: About two months ago (circa August 2012), there were perhaps 10 rack extensions, and three of them were done by Propellerhead Software, but now (mid-October 2012) there are over 40 rack extensions. Propellerhead Software handles all the accounting and delivery stuff, and they also do detailed code verification and quality assurance, all of which makes it easier for third-party developers to focus on creating fascinating enhancements for Reason . . . ]

Rack Extensions (Propellerhead Shop)

On the other hand, my current thinking is that there are strategies one can use within the existing framework for NOTION 3 that make it possible to create add-on products and enhancements, hence I think this probably will be the case with NOTION 4, although at present all I can do is guess . . .

From a practical perspective, I think the biggest problem is the way people will find stuff, as contrasted to there not being any stuff, per se . . .

And in this respect, something as simple as a page on the Notion Music website that has links to third-party add-ons and enhancements with a brief description for each product can be a nice solution, which actually can be done here in the Notion Music FORUM, as well . . .

The advantage of having an official store that handles all the accounting and product delivery stuff is that it makes it vastly easier for developers to focus on developing new products rather than on the accounting and delivery aspects, and it also makes it possible for Notion Music to do a bit of third-party product quality control, where for reference I like the Apple iTunes Store strategy for songs, where Apple keeps approximately 30 percent for its work and if you use CD Baby for digital distribution--which is the easy way to get songs into the Apple ITunes Store--then CD Baby keeps 9 percent, so for a song that costs 99 cents (US), you get approximately 60 cents (US), which in the grand scheme of everything is fair and reasonable, which is fabulous . . .

Fabulous! :)

P. S. Once I get a bit of stick time with NOTION 4, I probably will create a new topic about this stuff, since I think it warrants a separate topic, really . . .

Really!

Is there any chance for midi roll? Or maybe access to all midi data through Sequencer Overlay?

Is there also maybe LASS integration? :)

Lass...hmm that would make me dream with eyes wide open!!
It would definitely be something great but I have doubts ...and I think that they already mentioned that no additional libraries support... yet...

God, how annoying is this! Did it ever work? I can't imagine them not having fixed this in version 4. If not, I'd be seriously disappointed.



Why won't they answer this question?
