Digital Performer 8 (DP8) will ship for both Mac OS X and Windows 7, “fulfilling DP’s destiny as a leading audio workstation platform for Windows-based recording artists, producers, engineers, remixers, composers and anyone looking for advanced desktop music and audio production on a PC,” boasts MOTU.
DP8 will operate in 32-bit or 64-bit mode on Mac OS X and Windows 7. On Windows, it will support VST plug-ins and Rewire. Other significant new DP8 features include a new video playback engine, Punch Guard confidence recording, 14 new user interface themes and 15 new included plug-ins.
Punch Guard records an extra four seconds of audio before and after record passes, “allowing users to edge-edit in/out points to uncover audio material accidentally cut off during recording,” explains the company.
Digital Performer’s Themes allow you to change the entire look of the software via one keystroke. DP8 adds 14 new themes, including Hi-Fi, Arctic, Earthling, and None More Black.
Fifteen new plug-ins will be included with DP8, including two new classic guitar amp models, Live Room | B (a bass cabinet model similar to Live Room | G, several classic guitar pedals, modeled analog delay, a multi-band dynamic equalizer, a de-esser, the Subkick kick drum enhancer, and Springamabob, a modeled vintage spring reverb processor.
