  • When importing MIDI drum files, Notion uses GM mapping to put the notation in the expected place

  • Studio One launcher added to the ‘Send to Studio One’ dialog
  • Use cursor arrow keys to position articulations (and shift+arrow for fine tuning)

  • Score>Dynamic Parts is now current score order, not order of creation

Fixes:

Sounds

  • Harpsichord sound is now fixed
  • Organ and Chorus sounds retuned. (Download the keyboard installer from your my.presonus.com account and install. Restart Notion. You may also need to force Notion to rescan the folder – go to Preferences>Audio>Locate and reselect the sounds folder)
    Release sound working better for short notes (an issue particularly noticeable with organ staccati)
  • Drumset with unmeasured tremolo now responds to hairpins

 

Studio One interop

  • Fix when exporting keyswitch data from Notion to Studio One – go to Tools>Use Rules and setup a rule with Keyswitches set to “Automatically send note-offs”
  • Studio One launcher has been added to Send to Studio One dialog
  • User is prompted to save, if closing after Studio One file transfer and no other changes have been   made
  • More space for text in Studio One dialog when in German
  • Note durations now reflect articulation (e.g. staccato) when sending note data to Studio One

 

MIDI / MusicXML

  • Verse number is now being properly recognized when importing MusicXML
  • Fix occasional issue on MusicXML Export with hairpins
  • User is prompted to save, if closing after MusicXML or MIDI file import and no other changes have been made
  • Note durations now reflect articulation when exporting as MIDI
  • Changing MIDI channel in Change Instrument dialog now works as expected
  • Sequencer staff controller data now outputs on expected channel, not just channel 1
  • When MIDI recording in with multi channel VSTi’s, sequencer staff now does not reset all events to Channel 1
  • MIDI note length and velocity shortcuts now work if sequencer overlay is enabled

 

Rules Editor

  • Fix when using Duration Change in Rules
  • Rules Editor dialog size now persistent when closing/reopening (Mac and Win)
  • If having issues with smooth playback when using expression on external VSTi’s or MIDI ReWire, choose a different expression channel to the Notion hairpin map in the Rules Editor. For VSTi’s without velocity crossfade, you can also use the hairpin anchor in the Rules Editor – see Hairpin Anchor in the User Guide

Video

  • Video window on Mac no longer blank when re-shown
  • Fix show/hide video during playback on Mac

Notation

  • Bb and Eb instruments now go to the correct enharmonic key if in C#minor
