What's New in DP 10?
It's no secret MOTU has consistently worked on new features and workflow enhancements with each released version.
True to it, the latest Digital Performer 10 now includes long overdue capabilities.
Let's have a look. Shall we?
To begin with, Digital Performer 10 boasts of a new content browser that allows instant access to all the resources.
The browser now leaves the virtual instruments, loops, clips, and plugins just a click or two away.
Next is the streamlined Waveform Editor.
Now you have an all-out environment for editing waveforms with everything from zooming shortcuts, beat editing, pitch correction, embedded tempo maps, and so on.
It not only opens up for creativity but speeds up workflow significantly.
Next, Digital Performer 10 has now opened up for unparalleled audio tweaking.
With a new Stretch Audio tool, users can now enjoy more carefree, quicker, and more accurate manipulation of individual beat timing, global tempo changes.
Just by letting the Stretch mode kick in, you can easily have the parameter conform without experiencing unwanted effects.
Remember, DP 10 has also implemented a new beat detection engine that works in tandem with the Stretch Audio feature to ensure the quality of sound remains consistent all through.
Then again, MOTU has dropped a whole new instruments soundbank.
It presents a massive gallery of instruments, including classic synths, loops, and phrases, among other sampled sounds.
That means users now have access to a versatile collection catering for every style and genre.
But, even better is the fact that these instruments have just the basic features, so they are in no way overwhelming.
Granted, the new sample browser from where you can access whatever you want, drag and drop to the project's timeline and get creative in no time.
Another revolutionary improvement involves the clips window.
MOTU has implemented an Ableton Live-like interface, thereby enabling a live control over audio playback.
You can visually confirm clips on the queue via a window display once you play a track.
That's not all.
You can now run your favorite VST plugins and instruments, now that it supports VST3
And while all these improvements are significant, nothing settles it like the feel and scalability of the user interface.
With DP 10, you can make the most of high-resolution computer display for a more clear viewing experience.
