Hi Steve.

Sending note data to Notion-6 from Studio One 3.3 does automatically use an Grand Staff on my Windows version. For the instrument shown here.

Make sure USE GRAND STAFF is check selected in the Notion-6 Preferences>MIDI Import tab as in the the image below.

jpettit wroteDid you turn the Grand staff import option on in the preferences?


Thanks for the reply.

Yes i had that option selected and this is what happened.

steveonbass wroteI've just been testing sending a piano part from Studio One 3.3, using Presence Piano or Grand Piano, to Notion 6.


Steve,
unfortunately the naming system is not recognized for every piano "name" at this point.
In your example image in the previous post, - Acoustic Piano - Full - must not be recognized in this Notion-6 version.

The Studio One 3.3 "Grand Piano" and "Grand Presences" are a couple of the instrument names that are recognized by the process and function to automatically Use Grand Staff when sending notes to Notion-6. Those work for me.

A Studio One Instrument Category designation would assure that Notion would recognize the need to -Use Grand Staff- as set in the Notion-6 Preferences...

The instrument name recognition process I'm certain will only get better from here on.

Thanks very much for that John, I'd just discovered it by trying out a few different pianos and found Grand Piano in the Artists Instruments>Keyboards folder. Thanks to you I now know the Grand Presence works too.

What a great forum!

All the best and thanks again,

Steve

Thanks for your help with this. I went through and tested all the piano sounds and found the 'Grand Piano' and 'Grand Presence' in the Artists instruments>Keyboards folder.

That'll work nicely until they tag all the keyboard instruments :-)

Cool
I was in the middle of testing them but don't need to now. A few of the Presence XT ones also work.

Presonus does need to be clear on that.

Actually I'm wrong, the staff name doesn't seem to be what determines if "Use Grand Staff" is utilized.
It should!

I tried sending PianoTeq 5 note data from Studio One 3.3 into Notion-6 that did not apply a Grand Staff.
I then re-named the Studio One track name to "Piano". This was not recognized either.
So the recognition is from a different source than the staff and instrument name.

If I get some more information I'll be sure to pass it on.

Great topic, thanks so much! Through this I've been able to get ReWire working. Specifically I can

-- link my Notion project in to my StudioOne song and have the notes that I've scored in Notion sound with the Notion instruments under the control of Studio One.
-- create a rewire staff in Notion and plunk down some notes, and then put an S1 instrument in my S1 song and have it triggered by those notes.

There's one more thing I'm curious about -- is it possible via ReWire to have midi that I enter in S1 trigger a Notion bundled sound? Or must I do something like export to .midi or "send (whole song) to notion" and then carry on?

Thx again!

Not to my knowledge. They would have to expose the N6 playback engine as a sort of VST instrument or better yet support MIDI I/O through UCNet.
perhaps in the future. :thumbup:

Having now made sure that both Notion 6 and Studio One are linked to the same VST Plug-ins, I can hear the correct instruments when I send an S1 Song to Notion, except for the PreSonus instruments. At first I thought I was missing something, but after reading these posts, it appears that to get the Presonus instruments to sound from Notion I must use Rewire. Am I correct in this.

That's correct.

At present Notion can send notes by MIDI over ReWire.
However, at this time Notion cannot receive MIDI over ReWire.

Also to clarify the notes would be written on the N6 side. This is the Rewire confuguration that has been there.

Anyone know why I can't link Kontakt, Vienna Instruments or Play instruments to the Notion input in Studio One? I can link the Presonus instruments like it outlines in the manual but not any third party ones. I have studio one artist with the add on for the vsts.

What do you mean by the link?
Do you mean play a VST in Studio One via Rewire out from and N6?

I mean send a Midi Rewire from Notion into Studio One. When I insert Notion Rewire in Studio One and then add Kontakt I don't see the option in the editing window to change the input to Notion. It works if I add a Studio One instrument.

Nevermind - I got it. I was trying to change it in the wrong place!

Technically, this is not possible, but there is an exception, and it's as strange as it is fascinating and undocumented . . . :reading:

The key to this exception is discovered by observing that when you want to record MIDI input from a MIDI keyboard in NOTION 6, you need to do two things: (a) set the MIDI Input for NOTION 6 to your MIDI keyboard and (b) click on the specific staff in the NOTION 6 project to which you want to record the MIDI notes you play on your MIDI keyboard . . .

The way it works is that you have a MIDI track loaded with MIDI notes and commands in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) application, and you set it to send its MIDI via a virtual MIDI cable, which in turn is what you set for the MIDI Input in NOTION 6 . . .

Then in your DAW application you create a stereo audio track and set its input to the stereo output of the instrument staff in NOTION 6 . . .

As you can see in the following patently unusual YouTube video example, the DAW application (Digital Performer 9 [MOTU]) is sending MIDI notes and commands to NOTION 6 via a virtual MIDI cable (IAC Driver IAC Bus 1), and this MIDI Input stream to NOTION 6 is playing the native NOTION 6 Piano . . .

In turn, the stereo audio output of the NOTION 6 Piano staff is output to a ReWire channel pair that is used to send audio to a Digital Performer 9 stereo audio track . . .

[NOTE: Even though in this example there is only one staff in the NOTION 6 project, it is selected by clicking on it. The rule is that MIDI Input goes to only one staff, and it's the one which is selected by clicking on it . . . ]

THOUGHTS

This should work just as nicely when Studio One 3.3 Professional is the DAW application, and while it's interesting to watch and to know that it's possible, it's actual use in the real world is pretty much nil . . .

Nevertheless, it does suggest strongly that the possibility of playing a virtual festival of native NOTION instruments with MIDI notes and commands sent from a DAW application is greater than one might imagine, since in the world of software engineering, doing something one time is the special case, but doing it two times is the general case . . .

In other words, if you can do it one time on a computer, then with not so much additional work you probably can do it many times . . .

It's strange; it's odd; it's unusual; and it's not documented anywhere other than in this forum and probably only in this post or one of my other posts, but it's on the table here in the sound isolation studio along with a lot of other things NOTION does about which only a handful of folks on this planet know, mostly because they programmed it but soon thereafter were distracted and forgot about it, hence it's there and it works, so all you need to do is a bit of experimenting to discover it, which makes it a bit like a basket of Easter eggs, which is fabulous . . .

Fabulous! :+1
