The Notion Strings 2 Expansion Kit for Notion 2 allows individual users to customize the sound library of their Notion software. Some kits simply provide additional playing techniques for existing instruments, while other kits add completely new instruments into the mix. These kits are manufactured separately so that you don't get stuck paying for sounds you'll never use. Currently, new kits are being released at intervals of every 1-2 months, so the Notion sound library is always growing.
Expanded Strings II - This kit expands on the new sounds and techniques introduced in Expanded Strings I for violin, viola, cello and bass sections. The new sounds include col legno, sul ponticello, bartok pizzicato, minor third tremolando, major third tremolando, perfect fourth tremolando, open string, and natural and artificial harmonics.
