Cambridge, MA (October 1, 2012)—MOTU is now shipping its upgraded Digital Performer version 8, which includes a 64-bit operation, a new video playback engine, Punch Guard confidence recording, 17 new included plug-ins, 15 new interface themes and a new plug-in management feature.
The 17 new plug-ins include two new classic guitar amp models, a bass cabinet model, several classic guitar pedals, modeled analog delay, a multi-band dynamic equalizer, a precision delay, a de-esser, the Subkick kick drum enhancer, and Springamabob, a modeled vintage spring reverb processor.
DP8's new video engine allows full-screen viewing of full 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, such as the HD Express or HDX-SDI. The movie window can be popped in and out of the consolidated window, and the movie audio track can be routed to aux faders for mixing and processing, without the need to extract the audio.
Digital Performer's Themes allow users to change the entire look of the software with one click. DP8 adds 15 new themes, including "Hi-Fi", "Arctic", and "None More Black".
Digital Performer 8 is now shipping for Mac OS X. The Windows version is in final testing and will be available soon to all registered DP8 users.
