A few questions before i buy

Postby reddiesel41264 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 4:11 pm

1. Is it possible to use other east west libraries other than ewql platinum, for instance gypsy, with notion 3, even if it means making some sort of custom template. Or can i only use the libraries that notion has presets for?

2. Does notion support any kind of video track, or is there a video player that can be connected via rewire.

3. Does notion playback all articulation marks?

4. Can i print off individual parts from notion?

5. Does notion automatically transpose the notation for transposing instruments such as french horn.

6. If any of the above features arn't in notion yet are there any plans for them in the near future?

Thanks

Dave.

I believe that it is possible to create custom xml templates to use other libraries, but lemme check with development about how exactly this is done. I'll post here later today with directions on how to do this.

You can use ReWire to send your Notion track to a DAW that will handle video. I've seen this work REALLY well with Cubase, Sonor, and Logic....haven't tried it with ProTools, but I'm sure it'll work.

I'll check back here soon about creating custom xml sets. I believe I had a discussion the other day about it with one of the developers, but I need to confirm.....

Thanks for the quick reply, if the custom xml template thing is doable then you have another customer :)

Allrighty......spoke with development and got an answer on this one.

You can use the existing XML templates to use as a guide in creating new templates for use with other libraries. We will not be providing "official" support for this, but it is possible....

Ok cool, will you be providing presets for other east west products in the future?

Ideally we'd have enough time to work out sets for every library, and we plan on covering as many bases as possible. In other words....we're going to do all we can over the next 6 months to a year to incorporate as many libraries as possible.

Few more questions :)

- I prefer the music to be written in Tablatures which of course at the midi output will be assigned to kontakt's midi input and will hear piano viola and ...everything - CAN NOTION 3 do that ? ( I assume so but still )

- Also I for one like composing orchestral metal music ( among the usual stuff ) and because I like it a bit lowy :) I tune mu guitar to D ( re ) instead of E ( mi ) all the strings a note down, so :
Can NOTION 3 do that - edin the individual string pitch and be saved at the end given a chosen by me name

- Also I sometimes like to make my own keyswith patches for kontakt - just to make them lighter on my system so I have 3 articulations for example instead of 7. Doing this I assign new notes to be keyswitching for the different articulatons so there is another think I liked to do and I want to know is it possible to be done in NOTION 3 - can I make a custom guitar tablature with 5-6or 7 strings customply tuned and add an EXTRA strings with a completely unortodox tuning verry low or verru high note and use it as a keyswitch assignment bu writing on it the nomber of the fret ( the note ) ant it trigger the articulation which responds for the certain note ( I once again assume this is easyly done but still I prefer to be sure )

Well, that seems to be all i could imagine at the moment that I would like to know that concerns my personal needs : no midi keyboard ccs ( you already said in the future will be able to be drawn ) - the guitar strings edit ( the tunings ) and... the stuff I wrote above. Thank you so much for your time guys - I wish you big success with your product.
