PreSonus Releases Notion 5

By |July 19th, 2014|Categories: Desktop Music Creation|Tags: |0 Comments

This is the first major version of Notion that has been released since PreSonus took over the Notion name and added it to it’s arsenal of Audio hardware and software. I have three words…

I am impressed. :)

I took the upgrade route (v4 to v5) for $49 and not only did I get 5 activations (I only got 2 with version 4), it also seems that all the Instrument Bundles I purchased for v4 loaded just fine (and I have a BUNCH).

They’ve also lowered the price of the FULL instrument bundle if you want to get it – I didn’t need all of them so just got what I needed. It’s really nice to be able to use actual sounds recorded from The London Symphony (my favorite).

I have been an avid Finale user since Windows 3.11 and had to just ‘try out’ Notion in the background because my clients wanted everything in Finale. With the introduction of MusicXML and the ability to map the Notion keys to Finale, I plan on working with it more. The new Notion also supports video which makes it nice to score video.

The other aspect of Notion that got me interested in the first place was the full mixer that you have access to and they now include presets for Rumble and Fanfare (which are two libraries I like to use in my work).

I’ll be working on putting Notion through some testing and who knows, maybe it’ll replace Finale as my primary notation program.

New SignageVariation on a theme… Changed my sign a bit that will (hopefully) make a bit more sense towards the types of recordings that I do. :)

The Next Best Thing To Being There…

By |May 2nd, 2014|Categories: Gaming|Tags: |0 Comments

Berserk Games has released, for early access on Steam, their amazing TableTop Simulator which allows you to play table games any way that you want to.

“Tabletop Simulator is the only simulator where you can let your aggression out by flipping the table! There are no rules to follow: just you, a physics sandbox, and your friends. Make your own games and play how YOU want! Unlimited gaming possibilities!

If you’re into classic board games, we’ve got 15 to choose from, like Chess, Poker, Chinese Checkers, Dominoes, and Piecepack. If you are into tabletop gaming we’ve got a RPG Kit with various role playing animated figurines that you can setup and battle with your friends. The RPG Kit is ever expanding, so you can expect to see new things to come to really take your tabletop gaming to a new level.

If you’re a creative person, you can create your own games by importing images onto our custom board and decks feature. In the future we will be adding more mod support and even Steam Workshop integration. This is the ultimate tool for playing practically anything tabletop and the content is ever expanding thanks to the strong community support!

Tabletop Simulator is for everyone! Play a simple board game with grandma, have poker night with the guys, or start your epic RPG adventure with your regulars. Play almost any tabletop game you can think of! Being a multiplayer-focused game, up to 8 players can play at any given time. You can also play a solo game of Solitaire if you just need to relax by yourself. “

With the addition of the Nexus Mods site, you can download a ton of different games to play.

I have also opened up a new Forum where we can talk about getting some games together or built.
