Welcome to Notion's Community Presets
This space allows you to download, edit, upload and share presets for Notion. A preset is something that maps Notion's written articulations and expressions, to 3rd party VST instruments (or plug-ins).
To get started, download the repository as described in the GitHub readme.
After you have downloaded the repository, copy the preset folders you want to use from
presets/Libraries/<Vendor name> to one of the following locations:
You can save the folder in one of two possible locations (depending on how you wish to organise yourself):
On macOS, Notion will look for presets here:
/Users/<user>/Documents/Notion/Presets(you will need to create this folder if it does not already exist)
/Library/Application Support/Notion Music/Notion 6/Presets
On Windows, Notion looks here:
C:\Users\<users>\Documents\Notion\Presets(you will need to create this folder if it does not already exist)
C:\Program Files\Notion 6\Presets(or where you have installed Notion)
The location of the second of each locations above will change with the app's major version, so Notion 7 will have presets in its own folder.
Using the presets
On launching, Notion will check the two preset locations above, and add any Presets it finds to Score Setup. Look under VST Presets>Your Preset Name in Score Setup.
Creating and uploading presets
If there is no preset for the sample library you want to use, please feel free to create your own and make it available online so that others can use and improve it.
