PreSonus Releases Progression 3

PreSonus has unveiled Progression 3, a greatly enhanced version of the popular composing software for guitar, bass, and drums. The new version is designed for fast operation that allows you to get your music notated quickly, with an improved chord library, new effects taken from PreSonus Studio One (including the PreSonus Native Effects Limiter, Compressor, and EQ plug-ins), a Capo feature, and many notation and publishing improvements, such as extensive cross-staff beaming support, stemless slashes for leadsheets, articulation adjustment enhancements, and much, much more.

Progression files can be easily exchanged among Mac (with added Retina display support), Windows (with Windows 8 touchscreen optimization), and iPad devices for convenient composing and notation wherever you may be. The user interface has been redesigned in the style of Studio One and other PreSonus software for easier, more intuitive operation.
