Digital Performer 4.5.1

MOTU has released , an update to its professional digital audio and MIDI sequencer. The maintenance release adds numerous features and performance enhancements, including significantly reduced CPU usage for more processing power for real-time effects and virtual instruments. The company says the enhanced processing performance is a result of Dynamic CPU Management, which has been implemented in all of the bundled effects plug-ins, such as the MasterWorks EQ, MasterWorks Limiter, etc. The plug-ins now automatically disable their processing when idle. DP also provides Dynamic CPU Management for all third-party AU effects plug-ins via a software SDK available for developers. It allows users to save their bounce-to-disk settings by name and recall previous settings via its name or a user-assignable keystroke.

Other enhancements include a new column that allows users to control
the locate number assigned to each marker, faster beat and tempo detection, improved plugin automation, many performance improvements, enhanced Digidesign DirectMIDI support, better preview of effects plug-in region operations, and other plug-in preset enhancements, such as bypass automation for Audio Unit plugins. The full version of DP 4.5.1 is available for $800, while the updater is available for free to registered uses.
