The best sound around.
It’s thrilling to hear your compositions played with instrument samples by great players. Progression delivers samples by world-class musicians, recorded in top professional studios.
Interactive tools make entry fast and intuitive.
Enter notes with ease using Progression’s interactive fretboard, keyboard, and drum pad. Choose chords from a generous chord library, and create your own chords.
For many musicians, Progression’s interactive keyboard, fretboard, and drum pad are the fastest and most convenient way to capture pitches, drum parts, and guitar fingerings. The fretboard can switch from guitar to bass, and you can even customize the number of guitar strings and the order of entry for each voice for the drum pad.
The chord library makes it simple to enter the chord name or voicing you want to appear in your score. Choose from standard chord symbols and fretted chord symbols and design custom chord symbols and diagrams. Chords remain on the fretboard for repeated entry, and you can recall recently used chords.
Progression works wherever you do.
Progression allows you to compose in tablature or standard notation on your desktop and transfer your composition to your iPad®, where you can continue to edit and play back your music. With Progression and Notion for iOS (a separate purchase), you can create, send, and open scores between Mac®, Windows®, and iPad and can continue to work on your score anywhere, anytime! No matter which platform you use, you get the high-quality playback sounds for which Progression is famous.
Want even more advanced notation features and a larger sound library? PreSonus® Notion™ and Notion for iOS include everything in Progression and much more, and they can seamlessly open your Progression files.
Plays well with others.
In addition to transferring to and from iPad, Progression offers compatibility with other applications in several ways. Email a Progression file or save and email a PDF of your composition—great for teachers and students. Connect with compatible applications via ReWire. Import and export Standard MIDI Files and MusicXML files, export WAV files, and open Arobas Guitar Pro tablature files (v. 3 to 5). And of course, you can import and export between Progression and Progression for iPad, Notion, and Notion for iPad.
Capture MIDI parts and edit them with your score.
Capture your MIDI performances better than ever before in Progression. Choose keyboard, guitar, or drum entry and dial in exactly how Progression will follow your playing. Enter in real time or in step time. Then view your MIDI performance data in the Sequencer Staff.
Better yet, use the Sequencer Overlay, which allows you to see notation and MIDI performance data on the same staff. Edit each individual note’s velocity, duration, start point, and end point using drag-and-drop. For precise values, double-click each note and enter in the numeric values as well. With this feature, Progression combines the power of the MIDI sequencer with the clarity of standard notation in a unique and powerful way.
Mix, process, and export audio.
Progression offers features you expect in a digital audio workstation, including a built-in mixer with buses, panning, inserts, subgroups, and more. Process your audio with the built-in reverb, guitar-amp simulator, and PreSonus Native Effects EQ, Compressor, and Limiter plug-ins from PreSonus’® Studio One® DAW. Then automatically export audio from individual parts or buses.
