Alto Flute, Please!

Postby DrH » Sat Aug 07, 2010 5:09 pm

Notion is now missing only one of the basic traditional instuments; namely, the alto flute.

Given that it has been hyped that Notion has been used as the complete performance orchestra for performance from Ballet to Broadway, how can the alto flute be ignored for so long (especially in the latter case where the alto flute is a staple of B'way orchesatration?). It is also no stanger to classical orchestrations.

Agree? Disagree?

Thanks for pointing out this omission. I was just looking for the Alto Flute just now!

Although I'm a little wary of getting into a list of more-or-less standard instruments not available yet from Notion, I have long found it odd that although the Sopranino Sax is provided in the Saxophone package, the Bass Sax is not, even though the Contrabass Sax is there and can be used in a pinch.

Yes, the upper bottom is "Yes". It seems that if users select the red background format for this forum, then polls are difficult to read because both the question and answers are in a white font that all but disappears against the white background of the poll area.

Maybe the good folks at Notion can fix this as well. But first, an alto flute, please! :-)
