What better way to let your students learn how to write for a real orchestra, the true power of dynamics, and how to hone in on which sounds may not be meshing in the overall mix then with help from the London Symphony Orchestra? With NOTION 2.0 software academic version you can do all of that and more.
NOTION 2.0's playback engine has a large library of realistic sampled sounds from London's best recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Studio One, and allows for your budding composers to write for up to 128 instruments in a single score. With the high fidelity of sound, they'll be able to hear what parts of the composition may still need work, or what parts should be reallocated to a different instrument for more impact.
The software's score-entry interface has highly-intuitive keyboard shortcuts for expedient manual entry of their arrangement. The NTempo feature allows them to feel like a virtual "conductor", giving them the ability to adjust performance tempo in real time. A built-in audio mixer lets them modify volume, decay, and panning of each individual instrument. Some of the other useful features are automatic score layout and alignment, click-and-drag notes, MIDI import, timbre sampling at all dynamics/ranges, and 33 levels dynamic resolution with intermediate degrees. When you and your student are satisfied with how everything flows together, their scores and NTempo sessions can be saved to WAV format, complete with any of the custom mixer settings.
So let the sounds of some of the best musicians in the world help your future composers. Get the specially-priced academic version of NOTION 2.0 today.

I work with a local theater group as tech director and suggested Notion to the music coordinator as an augmentation to their performances. Since we've been using Notion the performances have been "larger than life!" Truly unique program....
