Digital Audio Recording MIDI Sequencer

Digital Performer is an integrated digital audio and MIDI sequencing production system. It provides an environment for editing, arranging, mixing, processing and mastering multitrack audio projects. Digital Performer allows you to simultaneously record and playback multiple tracks of digital audio and MIDI data.
Digital Performer 8 requires a Mac or PC computer with an Intel Core Duo CPU 1.83 GHz processor or faster running Mac OS X (version 10.6.8, 10.7.x, 10.8.x), Windows 7, or Windows 8. A computer with multiple processors or a multi-core processor is required. Macs with PowerPC CPUs are not supported. 2 GB of RAM is required; 4 GB or more is highly recommended. A display resolution of 1024 x 768 is also required (1280 x 1024 or larger is recommended).

  • performer Digital Performer v 8.0.2 May 2, 2013 Windows
    A 30-day demo period is now available, as explained earlier in this document.

    Digital Performer is now available for online purchase from the motu.com/store.

    DP's new welcome window appears at launch and provides quick access to recent files, new project templates, training resources, and MOTU news.

    The ability to export MP3's is now built in to DP and no longer requires the LAME framework (or any extra setup).

    Version 8.02 provides many improvements, optimizations, and refinements. Here are just a few highlights:
  • If a movie is fullscreen, switching chunks now preserves fullscreen viewing.

  • Improved performance when the Movie Track is visible. Improved video scrubbing.

  • Waveform drawing is now smoother at certain zoom levels.

  • Improved bounce to disk in projects with VST plug-ins.

  • Improved stability and performance when using MIDI ports and ReWire (for Reason, Bidule, etc.)

  • Improved stability with Kontakt 4 and 5 under 64-bit operation.

  • Improved compatibility with VEP, EastWest Play, Spectrasonics Omnisphere, and Mac OS X 10.8's AUSampler.

  • Addressed an issue where abutting MIDI notes might not play back properly.

  • Autosave now creates a sub-folder in the project folder and saves incremental versions there.

  • Many improvements in waveform drawing and editing.

  • Fixed entry of diminished (°) and major 7th+ chord (?) symbols in QuickScribe.

  • Merging chunks in a song now takes the tempo mode from the song itself.

  • Effect categories in the Effect Chooser now contain all variants of a plug-in, not just the one added.

  • Restored scroll wheel sensitivity to be more like DP 7 and earlier.

  • The following feature has been restored: if tracks are selected when switching to the Mixing Board or QuickScribe windows, only those tracks are shown.

  • Fixed an issue with timestamps in broadcast wave files.

    I don't know where y'all got the information, but Digital Performer has not been discontinued by MOTU. And there is no demo. Having said that, it is the best DAW out there! Excellent workflow that is completely customizable to however you work best. DP rocks!!

    Avec DP 3 comme 1er compagnon de route, j\'ai fait le chemin des upgrade. La seule version décevante fut la 6,
    mais tout est progressivement revenu dans l\'ordre depuis la 7 et ses mises à jour. Logiciel hyper stable, doté de fonctionnalités performantes. Un gros travail a été effectué par MOTU sur la gestion de la mémoire. Du coup, la bête ne bronche pas avec 20-30 pistes et des plugs. J\'ai l\'occasion de tâter PT régulièrement et sincèrement, DP n\'a pas grand-chose à lui envier. Je reviens à mon DAW avec plaisir. Depuis la 7, il est doté d\'options de GUI. On choisit celle que l\'on préfère. Manque un elastic-time à la PT pour que cela soit nickel! Le MIDI est super bien géré, et l\'édition de piste est bien pensée. Pour regagner de la ressource proc. il suffit de freezer les pistes IV, elles sont alors traduites en audio. Les EQ de DP restent, même après tout ce temps (11 ans!) d\'excellents plugs, efficaces. Même la ProVerb fait parfois la nique à Altiverb. La gestion des AU semble à toute épreuve.Bref! En ce qui me concerne, aucune raison de changer...

    Juste installé la version francaise en 4.52 avec mon g4 bi-pro 1 ghz et ses 1,5 go de ram...et ca baigne niquel...pas un bug pas une plantade en une semaine de boulot...j'ai récupéré tout mes anciens projets sans souci ..seul petit hic..petit probleme de reconnaissance avec certains instrus virtuels audio unit comme l'atmosphere ou le trilogy de spectrasonics mais j'ai réussi a contourner le probleme en installant la version vst des plugs et ca marche..via vst wrapper...
    donc en bref...fenetre consolidée superbe,beat detection engine monstrueux ( a moi les megamix de manu le malin avec lara fabian)...bref tout ca pour dire que y'a pas besoin d'un g5 pour que ca tourne du tonnerre et vu que tout marche nickel...je crois que je vais attendre un tout petit peu avant de me mettre sur tiger...hé hé

    Sur powerbook 1,25ghz avec 1 go de ram je suis pas tres content DP est gourmand en ressource et je suis vite limité dans mon travail et doit user de stratageme complexe pour pouvoir avancer ,
    en revanche sur G4 ou G5 bipro ce soft est une merveille , rapide fluide efficace on va droit au but , mais j'ai pas de birpo pour le moment .
    quand meme un point noir au niveau de l'edition audio qui meriterais d'etre plus performante .

    bon alors je vous dis, il faut une sacrée machine pour que DP+ Reaktor tournent correct, ça mange du CPU genre Pacman.. sur un g4dual 1.5mhz je me vois contraint de mettre les buffers en 1024 voir 2048 si d'autres plugs sont connect. Jouer une basse ou autre synth. avec autant de latence c'est pas très confortable, ne reste que le "freeze" et la on perd en flexibilité

    Sur un powerbook alu 1 ghz, os 10.2.7, 768 mo RAM, motu 828 : la maj 4.12 a résolu certains problèmes : faders collants, bug sonic modulator, peut être une meilleure gestion cpu (à vérifier). Pour moi, il reste impossible de jouer des projets de taille moyenne (16 à 24 pistes mono + 1 à 4 stereo) avec un buffer à 256. Les instruments virtuels font vite monter la pression sur le cpu.
