I continue to be busy with our basement (we’re staining doors, installing plumbing, and the like), and haven’t had a lot of time to blog. First, a very happy birthday to my now 6 year old son, Andy!
Now to the news that might matter to you: Notion 4 is 50% off right now, selling for under $50. Notion (now owned by PreSonus) made quite a splash when Notion 4 was released at $99 (originally a $400 product). As a Finale user, I purchased Notion 4 primarily for my interactions with Notion on the iPad (also a wonderful app), and I haven’t been disappointed at all in my purchase of Notion 4. Although I do most of my main editing with Finale, there are some things that Notion does very well (I love that you can swap voices for parts of a measure rather than a full measure, as scanned songs often mess up part of a measure; and I think Notion’s stock sounds are incredible).
So, I think the combined purchase of Notion 4 and Notion for the iPad makes a lot of sense; especially at this price point. I believe that the sale runs until the end of May (and no, I do not receive any financial incentives for mentioning this sale). If you don’t have Notion, and have been wanting to buy it…this is the time to do so.
