Progression is music production software for guitar from the great minds at Notion Music, Inc.  If you are familiar with Notion, then you will be glad to hear that they have expanded on its core concept, and geared it towards the guitar musician.  Every level of guitar player, from beginner to Pro, can benefit from the features packed into Progression and once again, professional musicians were used during the recording and sampling, to give you the best possible sound quality, including an extensive sample library of drums, basses and keys for those times when your ideas include more than just a guitar.

One of the great features of Progression is the ability to write music the way you feel most comfortable.  Weather it’s using a MIDI guitar or a guitar outfitted with triggers, a mouse and keyboard or by using the virtual fret-board and chord library, everything you do is added to both the guitar tab and the musical notation sections at the same time allowing various types of musicians to work together more efficiently in a rehearsal or song-writing situation.  As you add instruments or parts to your arrangement, Progression’s built in mixer handles all the levels and panning along with several insert locations for adding FX.  Steinberg’s VST technology is supported which gives you access to all the plug-ins you may already have installed on your system.  Two very different approaches to guitar amp modeling have also been included for you to experiment with as well, featuring the Amplitube 2.0 Duo, which follows the more traditional modeling of “known” gear, and the ReValver MKII, featuring an advanced valve modeling algorithm which literally allows you to tweak every aspect of the modeled amp down to the component level of the circuit.  Talk about tweaking.

When you are finished with your compositions there are several ways of exporting, or importing if you find you are not finished, all or parts of a song include MIDI and MusicXML file types.  Audio .wav format is also possible allowing you to integrate musical ideas directly into studio-works already in progress.  A lot of great features are available to musicians wanting to write music for guitar in Progression, even if you don’t play the guitar and it also provides a very interactive interface for those looking to learn or teach how to play guitar.  With all of these innovative ways of approaching music composition and performance, its no wonder Progression is in a league of its own.
