The Presonus Studio One 3 Professional with Notion 6 Bundle brings together two software tools that cover a large gamut of music-creation activities. Not only do they complement each other, but they are tightly integrated, allowing everything from writing notation and creating sheet music, to recording instruments and mixing audio. The two programs, Notion 6 and Studio One 3 Professional, can interchange information that benefits the workflow of a computer artist, as well as for live performers, along with composers writing music to picture.

Presonus Notion 6 - Notation Software

Presonus Notion 6 is a music composition and performance environment using notation software to bring musical ideas to life. Compose traditional notation, tablature, or lead sheets easily and seamlessly on a Mac, Windows, or mobile device, even using handwriting. Create music directly on the staff, record or enter notes quickly with a MIDI instrument, or use the integrated virtual keyboard, fretboard, or drum pad.

Playback can be realized using samples recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, and guitars by Neil Zaza, electric bass by Victor Wooten and a drum kit by Roy "Future Man" Wooten. Other samples include Olympus Micro Choir and Lakeside Pipe Organ by Soundiron. Enhanced VST support and bundled PreSonus effects add further functionality.

Projects can be integrated with any professional DAW via ReWire, or the use of audio/MIDI streaming, along with close integration with PreSonus Studio One. Film scoring is possible with the included advanced video capabilities. New layout controls allow for polishing the appearance of the scores and MusicXML support facilitates transfer between other notation and music apps. Export WAV or MP3 files with instant SoundCloud sharing.

Presonus Studio One 3 Professional offers an integrated approach to recording music, from tracking to mixing to mastering and distribution.

The software includes the fully licensed Integrated-Melodyne pitch correction plug-in, Red Book CD burning, and video playback and sync.

Production tools for a streamlined workflow

There's one thing the DAW-based composers at Sweetwater agree on: you don't want to be held back by your workstation's interface. PreSonus has been listening to its user base, and has incorporated the most-requested features into Studio One 3 Professional. These include a new on-the-fly Arranger Track with Scratch Pads that lets you freely experiment with musical or sonic ideas; NoteFX with Arpeggiator, Chorder, Repeater, and input Filter; and Step Recording for easy beat and track programming. It all adds up to a streamlined workflow that makes creativity more fluid than ever.

Smart interface assists your creativity

With Studio One 3 Professional, you get an all-new interface that's optimized for high-resolution displays. It not only looks good, but it also gives you the assistance you need - when you need it - with dynamic, context-sensitive documentation, help, and tool-tips. The interface also includes multi-touch support, definable Macro Controls, Studio One Remote for iPad, Automation Curves, a smart user-definable tools palette; and a re-tooled console for more accurate and intuitive mixing.
