The wait is over! Digital Performer 8 is shipping now! The new version is now compatable with Windows 7 and beyond.
The fully redesigned program includes many new plug ins and a beefed up user interface. Some of the new features include:
Take full advantage of your 64-bit computer system
Today’s plug-ins and virtual instruments are incredibly powerful, but they also require massive amounts of memory. DP’s 64-bit support lets you take full advantage of all your computer's memory for optimum performance.
Windows 7 support
Award-winning design and features for Windows
Version 8 brings Digital Performer’s award-winning design and features to Windows 7 and beyond. Operation is almost identical to the Mac version, making it easy to work on either platform.
17 new effects plug-ins
From creative musical effects to precision mastering
From meticulously modeled guitar tones to world-class mastering processors, Digital Performer’s 17 new plug-ins add to an astonishing array of 84 included effects. You get everything from modeled analog EQ to stunningly realistic convolution reverb.
15 new themes
Artistically crafted UI designs to titillate your muse
Other audio sequencer applications give you shades of gray. DP8 gives you dozens of artistically crafted user interface themes that completely transform the look of the app. From the whimsical “Hi Fi” to the sinister “None More Black”, you can instantly choose a style that fits your mood.
Punch Guard™ confidence recording
Take the stress out of punch-ins
Never again worry about accidentally cutting off the head or tail of that perfect record pass. Digital Performer’s new Punch Guard features always captures extra time before and after punch points, so you can simply uncover any additional material with a quick edge edit.
100% Cocoa UI for Mac OS X
Goodbye Carbon, Hello Cocoa
Many third-party plug-ins you’ll use everyday with DP are being converted from Carbon to Mac OS X’s ultra-modern Cocoa UI platform, and DP is 100% ready to host them. Cocoa is the future, and Digital Performer is there.
New video playback engine
Audio for picture as it’s meant to be
Enjoy full-screen viewing of 720 or 1080 HD video clips on a primary or secondary computer monitor, or on a conventional HDMI or SDI video monitor connected to a MOTU video interface like the HD Express or HDX-SDI.
In-line control panel
Conserve precious screen real estate
You can now embed the control panel in the consolidated window to conserve screen space. Customize what appears, including the shortcut buttons and editor tools. Pop it in or out at any time.
Organize and manage all your plug-ins
Version 8’s new plug-in chooser lets you organize and quickly find the effect or preset you are looking for. You can also organize all your plug-ins, factory and third-party alike, just the way you prefer, regardless of format.
Rewire and VST plug-in support
Run third-party VSTs and Rewire clients
With support for VST plug-ins and Rewire on both Mac and Windows, you can easily move DP projects from one platform to the other seamlessly, with no additional steps required. Just open the project and go.
