I purchased notion 6 and got right into copying down scores from another device, then i pressed play and there wasn't any sound. I said alright and looked around and that I was able to purchase expansion sounds. I ended up getting the $300 one with everything (for a nice discount) and assumed it would come in the mail as a hard drive or something because i needed to put in my address. After a week and still without sound, i went to this site then to my orders and saw all the instruments that were attached to the invoice when i bought them. I clicked on one and downloaded and put it in Notion< preferences all that technical stuff thinking I would have to do this with every instrument, but there was still no sound. I searched even more and saw that there were bundles i could download without purchasing, the set up after download was guided and i put it in Macintosh HD and everything and i got the sound. I am though still very confused. Are these bundles free and i spent $210 for nothing, was this my purchase just bundled up and in a different location, and if it is, is everything there. Im not good with technology but if any one can help it would be much appreciated. Also Im on Mac if that helps.

Hi Jacob,

When you purchase Notion 6, it comes with a library of over 60 orchestral sounds.  These are included in the 6 bundles that you downloaded from within your account.  

We also sell Expansion Sounds that add to the library that comes with Notion 6.  The Expansion Sounds do not come with the program and are available for purchase.  Once purchased, you will want to download each of them from within your my.presonus.com account under My Products>Software>Add-ons.  Simply double-click to install.   We do not send any physical media when you purchase Notion or any of the Expansion Sounds.  They are distributed via download only.

If you have any problems with playback after installing the sounds, please take a look a the following article in our PreSonus Answers system.
